Slick Rick–Do you have a copy of the Ebay listing. I read it and thought it was VERY funny and a well done
satire. I wanted to copy it to send to my son and some other people but when I went back to Ebay to do so, it was, as you said GONE.

If you have a copy could you either post it here or email me a copy?

Sorry, no copy. I was advised of it through an email with the prompting to hurry up and check it out as it probably wouldn’t last long as a listing.
