Ha!

Nice find Pixie!
The asking price seems a bit much though,considering the financial position there!

Anyway,i thought Russia owned Iceland now!

Well the seller appears to be from UK. Very strange indeed. Oh, look, new emoticoms.
But most of them seem, well violent.

I made a bid on it. I just need to buy Scotland so I don't run out of scotch to go with all that ice. I'm going to pay for it as soon as I get my inheritance from a relative I didn't know I had in Ni-geria. Should be any day now.

Hmm, think I was a bit hasty in thinking this was for real, I am thinking now it is a prank, despite there being over 80 bids on it...
funny though, in a tasteless way

IceNews - Daily News

Iceland is on sale on eBay UK. The start bid was 99p and, at the time of posting, was GBP 10,000,000.00, for more information go to eBay UK. It does not say who is selling the country, but as it is coming from the UK it seems as though an enterprising Brit is trying to see if they can get their money back by selling the country.

eBay is a regular platform for joke auctions, including a ghost in a jar and Elvis’s 50 year-old drinking water (part used). Planet Earth has been sold on the website more than once.



Imagine.

Edit to add: The earth has already been auctioned.

Is this the guy then:

Our Marmalord Needs You:

About Me

'Marmalord'
For me it is all about the Marmalade. My mission: to 'preserve' marmalade's journey through time. To do this we must celebrate the history of this fine spread, record it's journey and spread the virtues of marmalade to our young. I am the Marmalord (Ruler of Marmaland) - with my trusty side-kick the Marmalad we will create a Marmalade Eutopia.



He has an entry for the auction on his website.
