eBay Australia main page used High Wasted instead of High Waisted.

I found this typo on the main page of eBay after seeing the typo mentioned in the community forums.

I did wonder if perhaps it was branding. You know, the type of branding that deliberately misspells words. However when I clicked the link I found an additional spelling error and some images had text using wasted and others using waisted.

The members were having fun with the obvious recreational drug inferences.

I must admit I was quite surprised to see this typo on the main page of eBay.
