image for E-Bay sold on E-Bay
China attempts to bid for E-Bay - Price now $3 Trillion

In a bizarre twist, E-Bay owners put their website up for sale on their own website under "Businesses for Sale".

The reserve price of $5 billion was soon met with bids by microsoft, applemac and Amazon. However, the winning bid was made by Bloomberg who paid $7 Billion.

But once the paid was confirmed it made E-Bay worth $7 Billion so they withdrew the sale and re-posted at $ 8 Billion. The reserve price of $8 billion was soon met with bids by microsoft, applemac and Amazon.However the winning bid was made by Sun Systems who bid $10 Billion.

But once the paid was confirmed it made E-Bay worth $10 Billion so they withdrew the sale and re-posted at $ 12 Billion. The reserve price of $12 billion was soon met with bids by microsoft, applemac and Amazon.However the winning bid was made by Walmart who bid $12 Billion.

"This could go on for several years", an E-Bay spokesman said, "I suggest that readers follow the bids on E-Bay rather than try to follow this story, which would have to be up-dated every 5 minutes".

This is not the first time that E-Bay have atttempted to increase their income with stupid auctions. In 2003 E-Bay sold all of their staff at inflated salaries of $150,000+ per annum and bought them back at the usual minimum wage rate.

E-bay have dismissed the W C Fields claim that "There's a sucker born every minute" by proving that 476 suckers are born every second and buy the shit offered on their site
