A Guy "Sells" His Girlfriend on eBay as a Joke . . . and the Bidding Hits $119,000
There's such a fine line between trying to make a joke and accidentally getting into human trafficking. Apparently.
There's a guy in London named Dale Leeks. And over the weekend, he and his girlfriend Kelly Greaves were at a shop buying horse riding accessories . . . and she used a horse whip to hit him on the butt. British people, am I right?
So to get his revenge, he pulled his own prank . . . he listed her for SALE on eBay.
The posting was obviously a joke, and he described her like a used car with lines like, quote, "Starts okay but after a while there's a constant whining noise I can't seem to stop" and, quote, "bodywork is fairly tidy but close up shows signs of wear."
Well . . . somehow, he accidentally sparked a bidding war. And the price for Kelly got up to $119,000 before eBay pulled the ad 24 hours later. They said it broke their policy against selling human body parts or remains.
Dale and Kelly say there aren't any hard feelings between them after the post . . . but Kelly says she may be looking to pull another prank for revenge.
