    Wow, fantastic. Really funny and a great cause.

    I hope those happy people at ebay will be donating their not insubstantial closing fee, with them being so keen on doing the right thing and all ....

    This is my favourite bit...

    In the Questions and Answers section...

    Q: ur a W*nker

    A: Claire at asda called me that once when I forgot my bag for life, paid with coppers and then dropped a jar of ragu.

    Classic :D:p

    - Rob

    There is a business there some where, brilliant find;-)

    My favourite question:

    Q: Is it used? 14-Mar-11
    A: Dear Swelzba, the wetsuit is indeed used, but not in any weird gimp suity way, purely for its intended purpose of keeping you warm whilst engaging in water sports. Oh that sounds wrong doesn't it. I don't mean it's been worn whilst someone p*sses on you. Oh never mind.

    Looks like the sale is over now. It's great that his humour sparked this all, and resulted in so much being raised for charity. I'm glad ebay didn't pull it, as they had threatene dto do, due to the bad language!
