You know when you have a dazzling idea for a prank and then it goes really badly? And also you might be kind of a tool? That's what happened to a 33-year-old man named Simon Kane from the UK, who put his wife Leandra up for sale on eBay after he claims she was "unsympathetic" to his needs and "whining" at him. It was a joke, guys! Just not a funny one.
"I came in after work feeling a bit tired and unwell - my was wife dong the usual concerned bit but said I was burning the candle at both ends and was basically just whining at me," said Simon, who would obviously be played by Seth Rogen in the Judd Apatow adaptation of this story. "I thought 'right I'm going to put you up for sale'."
But then people tried to buy her. Two days after Simon posted the listing last Wednesday night, bids for Leandra had reached £65,880 (about $87,000).
