eBay Nutcase of the Week: Person pays $10,000 for digital picture of a "seven legged

The beginning of this story is mildly amusing. An Australian man called David Thorne attempted to pay an outstanding bill of $233.95 by sending the utility company a drawing of a spider he made on his computer - which he valued at precisely $233.95. Skip related content

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.
