Tooth Floss Holder Patent

Today I bring you an eBay sale that makes the sale of a $700,000 box look like a positive bargain...

Have you ever been in a public place and wished, fervently, that you could discretely floss your teeth? Perhaps with a small plastic implement to hold the floss, which could be conveniently hidden beneath your free hand?

No, you say?

Well, me either but - if you are reading this and thinking 'that is utter genius, I would surely pay upwards of $20 million to patent such a remarkable invention' then I have found just the eBay auction for you.

However, if you are still in need of a small degree of convincing - have no fear, for the seller has conducted extensive market research that will surely assuage any doubts you may be currently experiencing:

"By asking directly a random group of people in the US, one should apparently find that a nice majority of the answers indicate a willingness to at least try it out."

With such comprehensive and scientifically viable (not to mention positive) consumer feedback, it is surely impossible to find any reason not to purchase the US patent for the plastic (size of a credit card) personal flossing device?

Quite how the auction has got this far without at least one person opening the bidding at $21 million for this revolutionary device of the future, I really don't know...
