$94,000 Handbag!

Well the kiwis here probably know about this already, but it just shows how crazy some people are!

Last weekend, after the super 14 final between the Hurricanes and the Crusaders, the Hurricanes went out on the town as all rugby teams do. At one certain pub, one player punched a guy (I think for bumping into him or something, not sure). Another Hurricanes player saw this happen and what does he do? Does he stick up for his team mate?

No, he picks up a random woman's handbag and hits the Hurricanes player in the head with it, causing him to cry.

The player who used the handbag is a famous ex-All Black who retired this year? Or last year.

In the bag was a phone, which ended up broken. Must have hit him pretty fucken hard to break the screen of a phone.

So now the handbag and phone are up for sale on Trade Me. The reserve was $1500. Between 9.21pm and 9.30 it has gone from $66,666 to $94,000.

I am sure these are probably just people putting stupid bids on, but there is even a comment from on guy saying if the winner doesn't pay he will be the seller's lawyer for free to get the money lol.

There has been over 574000 views and I'm pretty sure the auction only went up this morning. There are 2158 unanswered questions/comments. If you wanna check it out its at trademe dot co dot nz. Type in Hurricanes Handbag into search box. I checked it out this morning after hearing on the radio news that it was at $400 cos I thought that was a lot lol.

Guess it just shows how crazy us kiwis are about rugby lol.

You mean with your love for a bargain you aren't going to have a bid yourself?

I watched that on Campbell Live, and apparently 7 grand is the highest legitimate bid.

Who the fuck thinks the bag is worth that? I have no idea.

Perhaps when it goes, they should get the winner on the show as well.

Well I was thinking, this auction ends tomorrow. So if they can get over $100,000 for it in one day. If I bought it for that and put it back on trademe for 2-3 days maybe I could make a profit But I guess all the hype wouldn't be there second time round. Maybe we could all chip in a couple of dollars, hide it for a year and bring it out on the 1st anniversary and share the profits

Really, this just goes to show that people are idiots. This is, however, more legitimate than a piece of toast bearing the image of jesus.

Imagine all the $2 shoes that could be bought with the proceeds!
