You Can Own This (Potentially Haunted) Antique Sword


If you have $150 lying around, you could be the owner of this awesome antique sword, which dates back to the 1700s. I know what you're thinking: Only $150? For a sword from the 1700s? What a bargain!

Oh, there's one little catch: According to its 76-year-old owner, this sword is haunted. As she writes in the ad (aptly titled "Sword for Sale WARNING Might Be Haunted"), "I got it at an antique store in my memaw's home town back in 1984. The person who sold it to me told me to be careful because there is a 90+% chance that it is cursed":

Since it's been in my house my life has descended into pure chaos. My knitting group came over and they all said they could feel a strange energy in my sword room (I have a collection of over 100 swords. This is my only haunted sword). Since i got this sword, about 3 times a week a crucifix will fall off of my wall for no reason. I am 76 years old. I cannot have this cursed item in my house anymore. Please take it off my hands!!

Someone in Austin please do as the lady asks and buy the sword, name it something Game of Thrones-esque ... and then tell us what happens.
