Go to an auctioneers school... Ain't all that tough... I mean, even I can do it... Might of fact, I have one coming up October 14th...

BTW, Amos does a great auctioneers song... He's got it down...

Auctioneer's chants are highly unlikely to have originated at slave auctions, since they are known to exist in Britain.

The radio ballad, Singing The Fishing, makes superb use of one during the storm sequence.

Slave auctions were big business where I was born. The term Being Sold Down The River was coined there.
There's a trivia question for you.
What city?
