It's simple ... Ben accidentally supplied an incorrect link to an Ebay auction, with the intent of instilling a bit of humor (which seems to have failed with some) ... and he then sent a corrected link which worked fine. In case you missed the point of his post, with great worry over the horrors and injustice of a bad link, here it is the good one:
