image for USA for sale on Ebay

The United States of America is up for grabs.

In an Ebay posting, discovered by Hunter Bargin the intrepid surfer from the 1960s group the Bleach Boys, the USA is offered with a reserve price of $487, along with a note that says that the seller, who has been identified as a CIA mole working as a cleaner in the gents loos in Victoria, is hoping for at least double that amount.

The posting is on the UK version of Ebay because no-one in America could afford the exhorbitant price.

Packaged with the country are 227 teepees, an infinite number of Indians, and a 5 gallon pot full of buffalo masalla, the latter alone being worth more than the asking price, which was calculated by Enron accountants.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
