Worst eBay copy of "The Shining"?

For the "Buy It Now" price of just $18.99 (plus shipping), you can have this silver Signet paperback edition of Stephen King's The Shining. It comes complete with decorative additions to the front and back covers! What a deal! 

In the product description, the seller notes, without any apparent attempt at irony: "Condition is 'Good' but there is some wear. The faces on the book covers have been drawn on and the books a bit bent. The pages themselves are in good condition."

Better idea: Check out your local used bookstore, where you almost assuredly get a copy of Danny Torrance's first adventure for much less, and without the doodles.
