As the world's most popular online marketplace, a lot of weird things tend to crop up on Etsy. And now, the site's regulators wants to ban the sale of more items such as lighter fluid, drugs and even preserved human remains.
The crack down was implemented after they found out archaeologists had begun selling shrunken-head necklaces that they acquired in New Guinea to hipsters, which subsequently was added to the extensive list of things people couldn't sell.
Etsy's policy manager Lauren Engelhardt notably included a "no human bones" clause in the new banned items list, because, as she so prosaically writes in Etsy's policy change announcement, the site has had "issues surrounding the sale of human bones."
And don't even think about trying to get rid of that mummy in your closet, because bodily fluids and preserved tissues and organs are also on the list. Strangely, human hair and teeth are still permissible, which means a visit from the tooth fairy can still earn you a buck or two online.
Other new additions include things like "smokeable products," which means anything from tobacco to "herbal smoking blends".
