I am selling the word “The”.Handwritten with blue ballpoint pen, on a torn piece of Reflex A4 paper, this versatile word can be used in literally thousands of sentences.

For example:”The dogs have escaped again”
“I will buy some meat from The local deli”
“What’s The time?”

As well as giving example sentences, the vendor outlines various uses for the scrap of paper.

Ideal for any situation, this fun-loving item fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, wallet, or purse.Looks great sitting on a MacBook Pro, and emits a mysterious beauty when leaning against sea shells.

It’s a popular word for the whole family.

The seller, who is somewhere in Australia, started the bidding at just 99c, but it has since shot up to AU$93 – around €63.

There are still five days of the auction remaining. How high will it go?
