... available now on eBay. Anyone have a few million lying around? [Razz]

I'm trying to work out if this is a joke or just a humourous attempt at actually selling the place, any hints would be appreciated [Smile]

Well,

Looks like a gag to me. Although the bidding history looks real enough - probably the prankster and his mates - after all would you fancy bidding 10 million quid on e-bay?

At least they couldn't try to tell you it must be lost in the mail [Smile]

It's been removed by eBay. That should answer the question. It was a hoax.

They've even taken the link off the JCR website:
Brasenose JCR and the Google cache still showing the eBay link

Is anybody else reminded of the blackadder quote?

Edmund: I then leapt on the opportunity to test you. I asked if he'd been to one of the great universities: Oxford, Cambridge, or Hull...
Mary: Well?
Edmund: You failed to spot that only two of those are great universities.
Mary: You swine!
Melchett: That's right - Oxford's a complete dump!
