Man sells imaginary friend on eBay

A Newport man is selling his imaginary friend on eBay – and has attracted bids of more than £1,550.

The sales pitch reads: “My imaginary friend Jon Malipieman is getting too old for me now. I am now 27 and I feel I am growing out of him.

“He is very friendly. Along with him, I will send you what he likes and dislikes, his favourite things to do and his personal self portrait.”

The seller, who calls himself “thewildandcrazyoli” has received more than 20 questions from would-be buyers.

They include:

Q: I’m tempted to bid but, if I won the auction, how would I know if he showed up? I just don’t want to get ripped off here. I hope you understand.

A: Yes, I understand. But I will not send you nothing, I will send you Jon conveniently folded in an envelope, with him will be written down his likes, his dislikes, his favourite things to do and his own personal self portrait.

Q: Last time I bought someone’s imaginary friend, the friendship between us never materialised … in fact, he rarely came around and hardly spoke to me at all !!! Can you assure me Jon will be different?

A: Jon says: Yes I will be different. I love making new friends and would talk to you so much you would get sick of me! I would tell you all my hobbies, interests, likes, dislikes etc…

Q: If we don’t get along can I return him?

A: I’m sorry there are no refunds, but i can send you a new friend if he does not satisfy you.

Q: I’m quite musical but have no friends…does he play air guitar?

A: Yes, he’s a professional air guitar player, and he would love to be your friend.

Q: Is he single?

A: Yes, he is single at the moment. He used to be a bit of a player (well, a lot of one) but he has out grown that phase and is looking to settle down in a nice relationship.
