It's all about a bottle of beer.

 

first guy sold it here

the buyer of it, corrected the spelling, added in a description worthy of the item, and well, turned it straight around and sold it here

I am not sure exactly how that first guy goes on breathing... I think that would have been the end of me.

 

Here is a little article about it

and just thought about it- the other guy who must be kicking himself is the only OTHER bidder in the first sale who only bidded a $300 maximum.
