Need a new fridge? Has the State of New York Office of General Services ever got a great deal for you! How about a used but fully functional morgue cooler from the Manhattan Psychiatric Center? It's on Ebay right now, and only a few hundred bucks.

Perfect for the storage of cadaver-sized ice cream cakes, corpse-shaped ice sculptures, or dead body-ish dead bodies, the fridge is a hefty 6 feet wide, 8 feet deep, and 6 feet high. Of course, the unit has sustained some wear and tear (read: has almost certainly contained a wide variety of DEAD PEOPLE), but it works.

The Ebay posting's stock discriptor for "used" serves to describe the fridge in a sort of unintentionally sinister deadpan:

Used: An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used.

It should come as no surprise that shipping isn't included. The lucky winner of the fridge will have to disassemble it on his or her own before transporting it back to a cozy death-cave hideout. But it's a pretty good deal. At the time of this writing it only costs $375, which seems cheap but I'll admit I've very little experience in buying and selling cold corpse storage.

The auction's going until June 6th, but the price is climbing (it went up $20 during the writing of this post) so get in there now! Or don't, and be a normal human being who's frankly kind of skeeved out at the prospect of being near this thing, much less owning it! Your call. [Ebay via BetaBeat, The New York Post]

Out of curiosity: would this acceptable for restaurant or bakery use? Or is there some bizarre health code reg stating that corpses and food can not be refrigerated in the same place? Or are there other such regulations (like size, or the fact that it's a drawer) prohibit this?
Just asking... for science.
