    Woman buys table on eBay, receives live fish

    Weird story.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ocial-facebook

    When Becky Smith ordered a £185 glass table and chairs from eBay, she would have had every right to complain that the delivered product did not quite match the description.Thatís after the 21-year-old full-time mother from Harold Hill, east London, opened two boxes to find she had in fact been sent 40 bags containing 150 tropical fish.
    The discovery - which was recorded in a hilarious video by her friend Jacqueline Johnson and posted on Facebook - has since been viewed more than three million times in less than a day.
    Proverbs 19:17

    Tropical fish aren't very comfortable to sit on.

    Imagine the children waiting for their fish to arrive and getting seating for 6 instead.
    Be the most brilliant color in the box!

    So, shopping on eBay is like fishing?

    I think the intended recipient of the tropical fish might be a pet store.

    Shopping on ebay is like a box of chocolates...
    At least in this case!
