    Just saw this article on the Yahoo website.

    A Lord from England is auctioning everything - his name, his land, his business. :)

    Check it out:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Lord-of-The-Manor-of-Warleigh-offers-title-land-sale_W0QQitemZ260272667257QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item260272667257&_trkparms=39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A3&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14.l1318

    The bid stands at $10million. Anyone interested?

    Laugh if someone cookie stuffed this auction ;)

    Just thought it was funny.

    '...With all that money, privileges and education and whoever posted the eBay ad still doesn't know it is Prostate cancer, NOT prostrate, unless the particular cancer His Lordship is suffering from forces him to lie flat with his face down, as in submission or adoration.

    He is selling two hotels, two Bentleys, a collection of paintings and his title of Lord of the Manor -- which he bought along with a large estate for one million pounds ($2 million).

    "For sale as a whole or in part... Can include David Piper, the existing eccentric lord of the manor, physically as well to a suitable purchaser."

    Piper, who is well known in his hometown of Plymouth for his antics, is hoping to raise up to 4 million pounds, although he estimates that the total value of the estates was as much as 6 million before property prices fell. So the current eBay bit of £10,000,000 ($20 million) is excessive.

    The title: Lord of the Manor of Warleigh will only transferred to a suitable purchaser, so preferably someone else who has completely lost their marbles.

    It's not a scam though. It can't be, as the news story has been published in The Telegraph...lol.

    Yeah its the real deal but I think people will just outrageously bid as a joke and the final bid will just be ludicrous.
