Someone's willing to pay almost $100k for a phone with Flappy Bird on it

They must be flappy.

DID YOU MISS out on the opportunity to download Flappy Bird before its developer pulled it offline?

Then you’d better get your bid in because an iPhone with the game on it is one of ebay‘s hottest commodities right now.

Bidding for the phone started out at $650 and steadily made its way right the way up to almost $100,000.

Don’t worry, there are a few more cost effective options on offer for those of us who need to pinch the pennies.

This iPhone featuring the game will only set you back about $2,000 at the moment.

And this one’s on the market at a cool $5.50.
