 Girl puts imaginary friend up for sale on eBay

They say it is true that one can buy and sell almost anything on eBay nowadays. Imagine selling off something (or someone) who is not even present in your life, but is fiddling with your mind. It might just be an invisible apparition which would coax you to consult a psychiatrist. That is exactly what happened in the curious case of 22-year-old Georgia Horrocks who hails from London. It seems that Georgia has befriended an imaginary friend whom she calls, Bernard. As weird as it sounds already, Georgia’s psychiatrist insisted that she sell off her imaginary friend on eBay as he was demonstrating the unstable childhood that she had to go through, full of emotional turmoil.
In the advertisement posted by Georgia on eBay, she stated that she would acknowledge some form of financial reimbursement, but the more imperative point is that Bernard should get a good family and home. According to her prediction, Bernard can fetch around £200 which is equivalent to AUD 367. Furthermore, she has described Bernard as an active person who might be mischievous at times.
Also featured in the post are some of the pictures which show Georgia sitting with her imaginary friend and having dinner. If that baffles you already, then you will certainly be shocked to know that imaginary friends have been known to fetch enormous amounts of money on the internet. The person who wishes to sell off their imaginary friend has to put up a post on a website along with a few pictures. Once the interested person contacts the seller, the imaginary friend is “sent through imagination to the person who bids the highest or the most preferred amount”.
If all this has already blown away your mind, then here is a fact that will leave you dumbfounded. Apparently, a British man sold off his imaginary friend in 2007 for an astounding $2750. The seller “thewildandcrazyoli” named his friend as Jon Malipieman and described that he was 27, but Jon was growing too old. He went on to add that Jon was quite friendly and also added that he would send a list of the things that Jon likes and dislikes along with a self-portrait and the things that he loves to do.
There are some who are absolutely disgusted and feel that this is an immensely horrendous way of fooling someone for money, but on the other side, some people end up shelling out exorbitant amounts of money for the same.
