Auction Vampire Spotted!!
(And He's Not That Smart After All)
San Jose CA, May 11, 2007: Something creepy is stalking eBay HP calculator enthusiasts. The enigmatic presence, known as "Coburlinfaratu," or just "Coburlin" for short, has never been caught in public. But his trail is littered with the corpses of his victims, many of whom don't know they are dead to this day! All that changed today when the reprehensible rounder with rodential dentition was spotted paying too much for a modicum of mathematical memorabilia, a cache of calculator curios, a tiny token of tasty technology. "What a doofball!" chortled leading eBay calculator financier Mad Dog ebaycalcnut. "He probably thought he was getting two real calculators. Instead, he bought a couple of manuals for $100.00! Yippee!" "His reign of terror is close to an end," agreed Namir, another august TAS auctioneer. "He sank his fangs into something a little too firm for him to handle, that time. He may think twice before jumping on the next unsuspecting virgin eBay seller with more valuable old calculator stuff than sense!" In spite of suspicious sanguinity on the part of HP handheld helpmeets, it is this reporter's fear that we haven't seen the back of the crack calculator killer quite. Stay tuned to WWN in case the invisible vampire strikes again!
Apologies to everyone involved,
