One of my most favorite websites has got to be DisturbingAuctions.com, which was pointed out to me sometime in 2000 by my friend Jenni. Never before had I laughed so much that I actually cried while looking at a website. The descriptions the site's creator, Steven Frank, puts with the bizarre auction items are the best. Unfortunately no new items have been added to the site in a long while. However, in order to satiate the people who want MORE, he has added a "Daily" section to the site where anyone can post disturbing items that they have found on online auctions.
I wanted to create this page so that some of my favorite "Disturbing Items" can be viewed again and again long after the auctions have ended. I am including the sellers' comments as they appeared complete with spelling errors and typos. I am going to try to include all the original commentary that appeared on DAdaily with each one to make sure everyone gets their props (also because often the comments are funnier than the item). On a few that I have I didn't manage to save the commentary so if you recognize one that you originally submitted please email me so I can add your name! Enjoy.

|Seller's comments: I have never EVER seen a doll like this in my life. I'm not saying they aren't out there because I know there are other Anne Klocko Dolls floating around but THIS one is totally unique to me. She is from the soft sculpture "Squeeky Cheeks" line created by Anne Klocko in 1983 and distributed by Dakin. She has that funky Cabbage Patch Kid type scrunchy face.

|Seller's comments: Novelty ashtray that features a sprite with a metallic gold butterfly on his forehead. He or she has rosy cheeks - red lips and eyes of green. This type of tobacciana collectible is called an image or smoker ashtray because when a lit cigarette is placed on the lip - the smoke travels up behind the face and comes out of holes in the pointy ears & beside the tufts of hair sticking out from his elfin hat. Overall condition is very good..!||$22.99|

|"Beautiful Early 1900ís Composition Doll & Dresses Shabby Chic" submitted by ?||
Most people who viewed this auction were more disturbed by the pic of the cat that was also on the page. They named him Kojak Kitty.
||Seller's comments:This is a charming little doll. There is no marks so I can't identify her. This lovely little doll has seen better days but really isn't as bad as she first looks. She is composition with a sawdust filled body. She has sleep eyes and composition hands. Her arms and legs are jointed. She has formed hair and a human hair wig. This delightful doll has only one really big problem. Her neck is cracked all the way across in the front. She won't fall apart because the fabric body is holding it all together very well. The stitching is solid, no sawdust is gone, the joints are strong and move freely, her hands and fingers are all there, the feet are fabric and are great. One sleep eye won't open. The eyes, I belive are painted tim. There is no clouding of the eye. She is crazed and her human hair wig is most frightening! I think most of this could be fixed if you have a mind to but I like her just the way she is! I love the shabby chick look of her chippy paint. She is charming and has been well loved but not really abused. She was stored in 3 old quilts obviously made by the little girl who owned her. The girl was born in 1907 so you can guess that she is around 1910-1915.||$26.00|
|Scary doll with messed up eyes submitted by PibAndPog, July 2001||PibAndPog: The original image was so large that it made me jump back when the page first loaded.||Seller's comments:THIS LITTLE CHILD IS SO VERY SWEET. MEASURING 24" HIGH, MADE WITH COMPOSITION HEAD AND LIMBS, THIS BABY DOLL HAS NO MARK. PROBABLY A TEST CHILD FOR SOMEONE TRYING TO LEAR TO REFURBISH COMPO DOLLS, SHE HAS HAD SOME ROUGH REPAIRS. HER FACE IS CRACKED, EYES ARE CLOUDY AND SOMETIMES STICK. HER FEET AND ANKLES ARE CRAZED. THAT IS THE BAD NEWS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT SHE HAS AN OPEN MOUTH WITH 2 TEETH. SHE SOMETIMES CRIES AND IS DRESSED IN AN OLD DRESS WHICH LOOKS GREAT ON HER. SHE NEEDS A NEW MOM. GOT THE ROOM?||$39.69|

|Dry Red Itchy Scalp doll submitted by PibAndPog, July 2001||
PibAndPog: maybe she just needs some Head & Shoulders or something.
|Seller's comments:I don't know what her hand and hands are made of. I listed composition but I don't know if they are papeir-mache or what. Under the flesh color, it looks pink and under that, the cracks look darker. She has a lot of cracks in her face and hands. Her eyes open and shut. She's definitely having a bad hair day.||$14.99|
