Cardboard Wii U GamePad enjoys eBay bid of $91,300.00

Worthless bit of card making mad bank

A terrible cardboard cutout of a Wii U GamePad currently has a bid of $91,300.00 on eBay. The fact someone put the unconvincing replica on eBay is funny enough, but the number of "accidental" bids coming in are icing on the cake. 

The "Cardboard Cutout Of The Wii U Gamepad" boasts free shipping, and is described simply with, "The title explains it all." It has received 80 bids thus far, though many have been retracted for offering an incorrect price.

Presumably folks are just having fun with it, but I like to imagine one of the bidders is an eccentric millionaire named Tufty Windsmear who genuinely wants the artificial controller to add to his growing collection of extravagantly priced pretend electronics. It shall enjoy pride of place, next to his cheese laptop and woolen iPad. 

This is the narrative I choose to go with.
