Homer Simpson dried glue lookalike on eBay sells for £150k

Every now and then something weird catches our attention which we think our readers will be interested to read about, today we will tell you about a recent eBay auction which made one lucky person £152,200.00 (GBP).

For the last few days we have been tracking this auction where people were bidding on a piece of dried glue which resembled Homer Simpson – if you ask us the resemblance is nothing special, but for some reason other seem to think it is.

The glue-lookalike measures in at roughly 1cm tall and we have embedded an image below showing just what all the fuss is about, the person who listed the item claims you can see his neck, bald head, big eyes and grinning mouth – we agree, but still think that the World has gone mad!

The 7 day auction just finished, on day 1 someone bid roughly £2000 for it and this stuck for a couple of days, however on day three dozens of bids were made and it had climbed to a whopping £55,555.00, this soon jumped to £122,222.00 and then settled at £152,200.00 – this equates to roughly $235,000.00 USD.

Since this auction went live the tube of glue which made this “masterpiece” has also gone on eBay and is currently selling for £100.00 – you can see the auction here and the listing promotes its “massive earnings potential” – I guess if one small squeeze led to over £150k, there’s at least one million pounds of potential in this tube (sarcasm). Alternatively you can bid on the ‘Homer Simpson Dried Glue Collectable Mug’ here to forever remember this ridiculous phenomenon.
