Then things start to officially go TOO FAR. David Thorne gave his spider drawing to a Swedish man, who put it on eBay - and it's now sold for $10,000. Which means, to summarise, a poorly-drawn GIF of a spider has just sold for $10,000, thanks to being marginally famous on the internet. We've seen some quite extreme nutcases over the years, but few that come close to paying $10k for a thing you can get for free by simply pressing PRINT SCREEN.
