I always enjoy a nice quirky eBay listing. Something to make you chortle. Well, recently @Its_Death Tweeted a link to a good one.
Due to an increase in running costs in these times of financial hardship, the decision has been taken to put the entire universe up for auction.
At 13.7 billion years old, it is in need of some modernisation. There are some black holes, but these can be sorted with a lick of magnolia paint. Though it’s quite roomy, we’d suggest knocking through an extension into a parallel universe.
Included in the sale:
30 billion trillion observable stars. We think there may some more in the attic. If we find them, we’ll throw them in.
Indeterminate number of planets – Some rocky. Some gas. One – interestingly – made entirely of nougat.
Life in all its form and splendour. And Chris Moyles. Sorry.
Full deeds and meaning of life written on the back of a cigarette packet.
Instructions. (Please note that Quantum Mechanics was built on a Friday. Some of the bits are the wrong way round).
Would suit Pan-Dimensional Overlords of unspeakable horror.
Please note that the photo is not to scale. Buyer collects.
I especially enjoyed one of the questions:
Q: I’ll pay double if you keep Chris Moyles. Deal?
A: Sorry. I’m not splitting the items.
It’s currently upto £31 with 22 bids!
