This handwritten note might be worth $10,000

You can find just about anything for sale on eBay - but this is something truly original.

A simple, handwritten article. The user, who goes by the name "sweatyman," put a handwritten note containing only the word "The" up for sale and - while that might be the most ridiculous part of the story - it isn't.

It actually attracted bidders. At one point the top bid was nearly $10,000!

We can see how buyers might be attracted as the seller's description reads, "Looks great sitting on a MacBook Pro, and emits a mysterious beauty when leaning against sea shells... And if your piano needs decorating, this word is likely to create a poor-to-mediocre vibe for onlookers... It's a popular word for the whole family."

Unfortunately, if you ever run out of words to say, this seller can't help you any longer. The auction closed on Monday - no word on who the lucky bidder was.

It may not sell, but we're intrigued either way.
