In August, Steen put himself on eBay to pay for his college education, offering 2 percent of all future earnings to the highest bidder, with a minimum $100,000 bid.
I thought this sounded like a clever financing plan, until I read a couple of paragraphs down:
Not everyone is convinced. eBay removed Steen’s auction after five days for violating the site’s charity policy. Bloggers also pointed out spelling errors in his ad.
Idiot. If you’re going to try to pull a publicity stunt, please spellcheck first.
