Man who sold his life on ebay!

Post  Kye on Fri Jun 27, 2008 11:42 pm

"A man has launched an online auction of his 'entire life' in an effort to make a new start following the break-up of his marriage.

Ian Usher, who emigrated to Australia six years ago, is selling his house, car, job and even his friends to the highest bidder on eBay.

Usherís auction ends at 5am on Sunday 29 June and bids for his life have already exceeded £1 million. But he isnít the first person to open a weird auction online.

Odd News presents a gallery of 10 of the craziest ever items posted for sale online."

Lmfao, check this out:
"Birmingham radio DJ Tim Shaw paid a heavy price after he propositioned Jodie Marsh live on his show on Kerrang FM. His furious wife Hayley decided her husbandís on-air flirting was the last straw in their relationship and immediately sold his £25,000 Lotus Espirit Turbo sports car on eBay for the knockdown price of 50 pence."

What a kick in the teeth eh, getting your £25,000 car sold for 50p! Hahaha! Brilliant, Razz.

Just found this:

"In response to his wife selling his Lotus Esprit for 50p, Tim decided to build a £50,000 car by only using 50p. He did this by asking various manufactures and asking for "free" or extremely cheap parts for his car. He has since completed the project, and appeared on ITV's Pulling Power. His car consists of a BMW chassis and a carbon fibre bonnet, with a flexible retractable roof. It is also fitted with LCD screens on the passenger seats and the boot."
