Fruity bidder goes pied-eyed on eBay
Naysayers crow that eBay doesn't offer bargains anymore. How wrong they are. They'll kick themselves when they release they missed out on over 1 million fruit pies. Who wouldn't want a million fruit pies? Think of the starvation in third world countries you could prevent. Think of the children.
In fact there were 1,090,000 frozen mixed fruit puff pies on offer - 13,000 cases of 84 pies, equating to 130 pallets, or five articulated lorries. It's what we in the catering trade refer to as a metric fuckton of pie. The taste sensations were originally destined for ASDA who cancelled the order. But even with a sell-by date over a year distant, who in their right mind would buy that many pies?
We don't know who exactly, only that they were a long-standing and active eBay user, and they had £124,100 sitting around in their bank account. The auction only ended last night, so doubt the details of this mystery pie eater will come to light in the hours to follow.
