We all have gone all over the top when online shopping. And if we were drunk we might get way to out of hand. And this is exactly what happened to a man in China. According to CNET:
A man from China ended up with a live pig, peacock and giant salamander after he went shopping online while drunk over the 24-hour Singles’ Day shopping frenzy on Sunday, the South China Morning Post reported. The sale is an annual shopping festival started by Alibaba in 2009 that has grown to become much bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.
The unnamed man shared his revelation in a WeChat post, which was then posted on Twitter-like platform Weibo by another user on Monday, according to the publication. The post has over 18,000 thumbs-up and more than 22,000 reposts at time of writing.
“Early in the morning yesterday, while I was drunk, I clicked into Taobao and started shopping,” the man wrote.
The man attached screenshots of the “extremely adorable Thai mini pig” which cost him 278 yuan ($40), the live blue peacock that came up to 390 yuan (about $56) after adding shipping fees, and the wild salamander weighing between 2.8 to 3.2 kilograms that cost 288 yuan (about $41).
We couldn’t really imagine what a wild Salamander looked like but just in case you also forgot this is a Salamander:
This story is great on many levels. First of all, what kind of mindset do you have to be in.. to actually order 3 random animals online. He didn’t order a dog, cat and a hamster. But a peacock, salamander, and a “mini-pig”.
The main question we have.. is how the hell do you actually ship a peacock?
