Those wacky Australians are at it again.

New Zealand is not for sale, despite somebody in neighboring Australia trying to offload the nation of 4 million to the highest online bidder.

With a starting offer of just one cent, brisk bidding for the prime chunk of South Pacific real estate quickly boosted the price to 3,000 Australian dollars (US$2,330) before eBay pulled the plug on the auction this week.


Apparently the rivalry between the two countries is similar to the US/Canada thing, with Australia being the "noisy neighbor", and New Zealand supposedly full of nice but dull people.  I'd look more into the source of such rivarly, but I care as little about theirs as I do our own!

Unfortunately I can't seem to find the auction; prolly got totally pulled.  But you can read the original story at least.

This is the best prank ever. Someone should do this for Canada and Mexico.

No one will try to auction off Mexico. It's only worth about $5.

America should just buy Mexico and put an end to this immigration thing the easy way.

Probably too much paperwork involved. You know how it is with government.

The only solution then is global domination, clearly.
