What's the funniest or strangest feedback you've seen or received on Ebay

What's the oddest or funniest feedback your seen or received on Ebay? Occasionally I'll get some where the seller is just trying to be funny, and then there are some where I'm scratching my head trying to understand the meaning of it.

I just received one the other day that said, "If I ever find my real parents, I hope they are as cool as this seller". A few weeks back, I receive one that says "I LOVE TURTLES", but I've sold them nothing turtle related. It's like they felt they were required to leave feedback, so they just typed something in randomly.

A negative for "did not work in exactly the way the seller said it would not."

I've left passive aggressive "positive" feedback if I was unhappy with the seller but didn't want to give them a negative. I often evaluate sellers and potential purchases on the basis of feedback.

Didn’t ebay use to allow feedback without verified purchases? Like in the very early years? Pretty sure it was a thread here that linked to a celebrity of sorts in ebay feedback. Hilarious random feedback.

I've been on ebay for centuries and have never received a foolish feedback response.

Oh man, I love Andy's feedback, I thought of him as soon as I saw this thread. I'm happily surprised that it's still there, considering how ebay purges inactive members (and this dude was NARU'd years ago!). And yes, that was back in ebay's "wild west" days when you could just leave feedback for anyone, regardless of if you had a transaction with them or not. I miss those days!

I got one the other day that said "If this seller were a food he'd be Tacos, because I want to buy from him every Tuesday"

I think one time I left feedback for golf balls that said something to the effect of "I LOVE YOUR BALLS!"
