淘宝上的那些奇葩商品
Weird stuff you can buy on Taobao

淘宝之大,无奇不有。看一看那些在淘宝上可以买到的奇葩产品。要囤货的赶紧去囤。

With the rapid development of e-commerce in China, the list of stuff you can't buy from the Internet is shrinking greatly. The diverse tastes and fearless fashion sense of the new generation of customers have pushed sellers' boundaries of innovation .

Here are some of the most creative and eye-popping products for sale from Taobao, China's largest online shopping platform.

1. Playful accessories

A store named "Strange taste" based in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province guarantees that you won't be caught in the same outfit or sporting the same accessories as others with its unique offerings.

"Delicious" earrings. Now is your chance to frame your face with your favorite food. These whimsical earrings are made in the shapes of dumplings, fried eggs and bacon: a feast for the eyes.

And Carrot earphone.

2. Time travel paintings 

The paintings managed to give the classic Tang dynasty (AD 618-907) style portraits a modern touch by featuring contemporary inventions including the hair dryer, selfie stick and, amusingly, the minions from Despicable Me.

3.Obama's voice

Be the first and only person on your block to receive a morning call from the US president Barack Obama!

There are many shops on Taobao that provide vocal imitations of hundreds of celebrities, whether dead, alive, real or imaginary.

Besides Chinese and foreign politicians, the voices of Doraemon, SpongeBob and Jackie Chan are also among the best sellers.

4. Cyber sweethearts

For about 20 yuan ($3.2) a day, you could buy a cyber sweetheart from Taobao. They are real people who will phone you to say good morning, wish you sweet dreams as you lay in bed at night, listen to your complaints and give you encouragement in between. You can even customize the personality of your untouchable lover.

5. Sad poets' poetry

"The sadness of a 50 cent poet" is the name of a shop that has nothing but poems for sale.

The shop offers more than 70 short poems by four poets. The message on the shop's front page is blunt: "Ours is an age when poets starve. Our poems are free. If you think they are good. We would not mind a 50-cent donation."

6. Doge headgear

Doge, the Shiba Inu dog behind the greatest meme the Internet has yet to see, has also become an inspiration for Taobao sellers.

The hand muff/pillow with the shape and likeness of Doge's head enables the buyers to take amusing photos and plaster multicolored text on them to imitate the inner monologue of the dog.(英文文本 via China Daily)
