I thought of the best assignment, like, ever

and I'm loving the papers I'm getting.

Assignment: Argument paper
Topic: Sell me the lamest thing you can think of on ebay. Convince me to buy it. Whoever makes the most money gets extra credit.

Check out one of the auctions here:

I'm not gonna lie. That's probably the best eBay auction copy I've ever read. You should definitely give that student an A+. He clearly spent a lot of time on this. He probably had to awkwardly explain the assignment to his camera-savvy roommate to get those sweet photos. Not only that, he might have had to prowl around the BYU bookstore searching for the perfect box of chocolates and then shell out his hard earned cash ($10.00!) to buy it. Here's a guy thats dedicated to his craft. Really, an inspiration to us all.
