A 21 year old is currently offering his Volkswagen Golf IV on eBay, that he bought from Josef Kardinal Ratzinger - the new Pope - some months ago. According to eBay Germany there hasn`t been an auction with more page views...currently 1.1 million and counting...

116 Gebote? I have no idea what a Gebote is.... or if that is even the bid.

Is it? If so, is that good? What would that convert to?

Gebot = Bid
1 EUR ~ 1.3 $

Excluding a certain previous owner called Josef Kardinal Ratzinger, this six year old car usually sells for roughly 10.000 EUR. With more than six days to go and the news spreading all over the world this kid will definitely get a six figure sum..

cute little car.

I thought this was funny

"Unbelievable! This is not an ordinary car! Your driving will always be safe and blessed in it. You won't belive it, but the former car-holder was our new pope Benedict XVI (Josef Kardinal Ratzinger). This can be proved by the registration document as you can see in the picture below. The car looks as if it was new due to the care it god. "
