A Beautiful Reminder

My wife and I just celebrated our first year anniversary, so this story struck me especially amusing.

A controversial radio DJ's wife sold his £25,000 sports car on eBay for just 50p after he flirted with Jodie Marsh on air.

Kerrang 105.2's Tim Shaw told the model he was prepared to leave his wife and their two children for her, reports Metro.

Wife Hayley was listening and immediately posted an advert for the Lotus Esprit Turbo with a 'Buy It Now' option of 50p.

The item description read: "I need to get rid of this car in the next two to three hours before my husband gets home to find it gone and all his belongings in the street."

The car sold within five minutes.

For those interested, the eBay auction is here. 50p would be something like 75 cents...and in the US, that car would easily run to $50-60K. It's the kind of deal one dreams about at night.

The funniest part is that my wife has The Z titled in her name. Well, I guess that means I need to continue behaving...
