This handwritten note might be worth $10,000

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!

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