eBay Nutcase of the Week: American town attempts to sell massive steel bridge

Transport, Websites, Weirdness

He’s stuck the local bridge on eBay, for a starting price of $100. Buyer must pick up. If you have the relevant insurance and equipment to pick up a 90-foot steel bridge, it’s yours. Winchendon doesn’t need it any more as it’s fixing up the area.

“I got the idea from Sarah Palin. She said in one of the debates that she auctioned off the governor’s jet, and I thought it was a great idea,” said Town Manager James M. Kreidler Jr., adding that, as of yesterday, nine people had placed the bridge on their eBay watch lists.
