Chatham man selling bizarre items on Facebook Marketplace including 'jar with ghost of George Harrison inside'

A man from Chatham is 'selling' hilarious items on Facebook Marketplace - and one particular offering has had the internet in stitches.

Simon Barham is advertising the sale of a jar with a "possible ghost inside."

The item description reads: "Was my deceased uncle's jar. Possibly has the ghost of George Harrison inside but is definitely haunted.

"Animals strike curious poses in its presence and children cry when they look at it.

"So if you like the Beatles, then this is the jar for you."

The potentially-paranormal vessel is being sold for just £3 - a bargain if that's your sort of thing.

The news of the strange item has been shared across Twitter, with users cracking up at the advert.

Cult user State of Facebook, which highlights the bizarre happenings on the platform, posted images of the ghost jar and received hundreds of favourites.

Meanwhile @ellll_c posted the pictures and received more than 16,000 favourites and hundreds of comments.

One user said: "Three quid to possibly have George Harrison's ghost - that's a bargain!"

Others wondered if buying the jar would be worth the potential risk of being eternally haunted by the late Beatle.

And the ghost jar's not the only thing Simon is selling, either.

His seller page has an assortment of hilarious and ridiculous products, including a car sauna that will enable you to "enjoy open pores on the open road."

For a measly £3 you could bag yourself a shed with a roof shaped like WILL.I.AM's hair.

The description reads: "Specifically for the growing market/demand to have sheds created into their favourite charisma-free celeb.

"This is my third attempt. My Les Dawson and Jim Bowen shed solds like hot cakes."

There's also a PlayStation 5 "prototype" accompanied with a picture which appears to be of a free-standing heater.

But the haunted jar is arguably the most enticing on offer - so the question is, would Simon actually part with it?

KentOnline contacted him to see if he would sell the jar for the £3 advertised, but sadly he would not.

He did offer a little more detail on the mysterious receptacle though, writing: "This could unleash catastrophic consequences. We may need to liaise with Derek Acorah."

He also revealed the tongue-in-cheek title of his so-called business - NaiveTek Ltd.

We haven't yet tried to contact Mr Acorah, but watch this space.
