Shop Victoriously - Get A Great Deal on Belgium (Yeah, The Country)

Belgium, was up for sale on eBay and had attracted a top bid of 10 million Euros before eBay realized it was a spoof and pulled it down. I won't even go into how it could have risen to 10 million Euros before they caught on.

The details are as follows according to TheAge.com an Australian website.:

"Belgium, a kingdom in three parts" was posted on the Belgian eBay site as offering "plenty of choice" despite the caveat that it comes with "300 billion of National Debt".

Offered in three parts - Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia - the accompanying blurb said the kingdom "can be bought as a whole (not recommended)".

The vendor also included as added extras "the king and his court (costs not included)".

Maybe eBay should have created a TV Ad where the Worlds Dictators and Despots were running around a track chasing a Waffle (Belgium Waffle) That would kick in those Windorphins.
