Iceland For Sale On eBay [Friday Fun]
By on October 10th, 2008

No offence to our readers from Iceland, and neither are we trying to make fun of their recent economic problems, but we could not stop laughing when we saw a lunatic put up Iceland for sale on eBay.

The sale started at 99 pence and was heavily bid on receiving 84 bids from 26 people, the last bid was a whipping 10 million pounds. The bid read:

"Located in the mid-Atlantic ridge in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland will provide the winning bidder with — a habitable environment, Icelandic Horses and admittedly a somewhat sketchy financial situation,"

There were several funny question being asked by bidders which included "Do you offer volcano/earthquake insurance?", "Is it possible that my payment will be frozen?", and "Will you accept C.O.D. as a form of payment?"

The bid has been taken off by eBay as of now, but this definitely shows how a unregulated market can have lunatics selling things that do not belong to them. What next, do we see this blog on sale at eBay.

    @Chetan lol yea maybe we would, because eBay does not regulate such sales unless it becomes popular, like in the case with the Iceland sale.
