Yes, you read that headline correctly, and it could be yours with bids only up to £38.
The Ebay posted was reported by the Bristol Post earlier today, and it seems to be causing some mixed reactions.
One comment from ‘TallAndy’ stating:
This has got to be collection only as this lot have never delivered
‘Used: with Deep Flaws’
The joker, listed on the selling site as ‘LizzyMac-UK’ had received 18 bids after the first day of the listing – although no bid had gone higher than £38.
The Government is listed as ‘used’ and ‘with deep flaws’, and is up for sale for ‘quick disposal’.
“May possibly be used as garden gnomes although you could find other uses, but they do need a good home,” said the listing. “Removal may incur some costs to the buyer.
“Feet should be planted quite deep and at least 1m apart as when they congregate together they tend to get the knives out.
“This can frighten the neighbours. Feed with a mixture of manure and compost but not too liberally as you do not want to promote growth.
“Plant in a shaded area but with some light as they have a tendency to migrate over to the dark side and you never know who they might get into bed with.
“Prickly and full of gristle their Teflon coating means that they are not very bio-degradable, so they are not very good for the environment. Wildlife are strangely repelled by them and foxes hate them.
“Removal imperative as new stock arriving soon. Quite happy for them to be shipped overseas,” the sale added.
The sale was listed, with 65p needed for postage and packing, with the proceeds going to the Red Nose Day charity.
