What Would You Do for Five Bucks? Apparently, a Lot: The Top 10 Goods and Gigs Available for $5 at E-commerce Site Fiverr.com
Apparently a green sheep will talk for just $5.
What would you do for five bucks? More importantly, what would you pay someone else to do for five bucks? The e-commerce site Fiverr.com allows registered users to buy and sell services, or "gigs," that range from useful (graphic design, programming help, English grammar lessons) to err, less than useful (7 hours of vacuum cleaner sound effects, a homemade voodoo doll, "my eternal soul"). The one constant: they all cost five dollars.
1. I will pretend to be anyone you want me to be on the phone or via text for $5
Posted by Kassius509
Perhaps one of the most useful services offered on the site, the prerequisite for this service is a lack of anything resembling a conscience. The seller specializes in imitating cousins, butlers, slaves, and religious leaders, but... "within reason!"
2. I will burn a small paper effigy of your enemy for $5

"Images or a short video of the burning will be provided."
3. I will spam my friends on Facebook with your company's website for $5
Posted by msQT
In the spirit of self-sacrifice and selling out, msQT makes a popular offer: to spam the shit out of Facebook friends and Twitter followers on your behalf. For a similarly promising gig. try, "I will jog around the city with your logo stuck to my but" (her spelling).
4. I will teach the difference between Their, They're and There for $5
Posted by Meowrena
A completely worthwhile service for the children of spellcheck, seller Meowrena also offers insight on "Your" and "You're" usage. Perhaps she could assist the previous seller with "but" and "butt."
5. I will give out a positive review for your product for $5

Considering this offer exists on a site that employs user reviews, the integrity of Fiverr's customer feedback is questionable at best. Especially when it include things like, "A++++++++++" and "He made what I thought was impossible happen!" Meta.
