Yahoo is going through some very, very early spring cleaning by selling off a stash of 29 Web domains, including gems like crackers.com, sled.com, and religious.net. OK, that last one might not be such a hot commodity – but it’ll still cost you between $10,000 and $24,000.

As Quartz reports, the domains range in price from as low as $1,000 to $5,000 for stinkers like batoota.com and webcal.com, up to between $1 million and $1.5 million for av.com, which might actually be worth the hefty investment.

Mid-range domains, like policescanner.com, jockeys.com, or truestory.com run in the neighborhood of $10,000 to $25,000. Meanwhile westerns.com and mym.com – the meaning of which has completely passed over our heads – is expected to fetch up to $250,000. Why? Who knows – we’re just the messenger.

One of our personal favorites, sandwich.com, could go for the low, low price of $50,000 to $100,000, while cyberjokes.com is a steal at $1,000 to $5,000. Why does Yahoo own cyberjokes.com, you ask? No clue, but considering Yahoo’s heyday as a later 90′s Internet giant, it’s really not so much of a surprise. Either way, the sale of these domains – assuming they actually sell – could bring Yahoo combined total of as much as $3.5 million. Not a bad payday for a bunch of sites that are just sitting around, waiting for someone to turn them into the next Yahoo.com.

Yahoo is auctioning off 29 domains in total. You can check out the full list – or even buy one of these puppies – right here.
