Baby, you can buy my car

The BBC is reporting that a 3-year old kid got on his mother's computer and won an e-Bay auction for a Barbie pink Nissan Figaro?! Apparently, the toddler placed a bid for £9,000 (or about $17,000) on the site and won the auction, a fact his parent's only realized when they received a congratulations e-mail from the company. Half-beaming, half-horrified, his mom is quoted as saying, "Jack's a whiz on the PC, and just pressed all the right buttons." Guess so. Luckily, his father was quick to do the same-- a quick chat between Jack's pop and the auto dealer resolved the issue, and the car will be re-auctioned in the near future. Link via Presurfer
