SYDNEY, May 27 (UPI) -- An Ebay user from Sydney managed to sell scrap of paper with the word "The" written on it for over $10,000.

The bidding started at $.99 on May 22 and soon there were more than 44 bids up to $10,099 AUD which equals about $9,320 USD. The person with the username sweatyman, stressed the versatility of such a valuable product.

"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?'

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 the quintessential addition to any pot plant. And if your piano needs decorating, this word is likely to create a poor-to-mediocre vibe for onlookers, when they see it placed on your instrument.

Can be used to wipe the fog from a snorkel and is timeless when placed in a puppy & bunny rabbit scenario. It's a popular word for the whole family."

The bidding on the item has ended, but the lucky winner has yet to be announced.
