4 dudes sell themselves on eBay for $10,000+

Four boys from inner-Sydney Australia (Corey, Mark, Zac and law student Lachie) have put themselves up for auction at online marketplace eBay, welcoming bids for a weekend with four blokes in Sydney.

The eBay auction is at $45,000… and there's still four-and-a-half days left to bid.

"Couldn't be bothered making the effort finding new friends at the pub?" the offer reads. “Don't have friends who are up for a couple of beers, a few snags and a hell of a good time? Or just bored with your current friends and their obsession with nerd stuff? What you need is a weekend with four fun blokes in inner Sydney."

The boys won't fly the successful bidder to Sydney or pay for their bus fare, but are promising to wine and dine true Aussie style - with a few tinnies and a barbie.

They also allude to the possibility of an "international guest" from the UK, "making it five blokes for the price of four. It's easier than chatting to randoms in a pub and you know we'll be your friend from the moment you arrive til the moment you leave. That's our promise to you!" the offer says.

The highest bid - from manic_macka - comes in at a cool $45,000, with the site so swamped with questions (more than 200) the boys have been forced to issue a statement reminding bidders "this offer is for you and one guest only, provided, of course, they are prepared to enjoy some beer, some snags, some good conversation and a hell of a lot of laughs."

How awesome is this idea? I can't believe people are bidding this much money just to hangout with these guys. Click here to see the actual eBay auction, and the Article here.
