Two years ago, a Spanish woman, who said she owned the Sun, wanted to collect taxes on it.
This year a Japanese man says that God gave him the Earth as a present in a dream, so now he is trying to sell it on an auction. He lists our planet as “authentic” and warns bidders there is a “no return” policy on the item. It isn't t a joke! The starting price was ¥69 ($0.86), but now it' s ¥9,889,899,888 ($123,000,000). A real bargain!
But, if the world is going to come to an end, according to the Mayan calendar, is such an investment really worth it?
Here is what the man selling the Earth answered to a buyer on Yahoo Auctions:
Q: “Hello. This is a really interesting item! If I buy the Earth, will I become a god?
A: Thank you for your question! This item can’t make you a god. Are you alright in the head? Thank you for your interest.”
The pot calling the kettle black! (= Είπε ο γάιδαρος τον πετεινό κεφάλα!)
