Toowoomba woman tries to sell brother on Facebook

THERE are probably quite a few people out there who have tried to quietly get rid of their siblings without mum noticing, but one Toowoomba woman had a go at selling her brother off today.

Toowoomba's Buy, Swap, Sell and Giveaway member Pip Banner caused a few laughs when she posted a photo of her brother on the Facebook page with a sale price of $1234.

She said the lucky buyer would get a bloke who was pretty nifty with the odd jobs as long as he was fed, though warned that a little "manscaping" might be required to seal the deal for the right buyer.

The brother reportedly also loves good tunes and a nice cuddle by the fire - perfect for the chilly weather.

The "30-years-young" fellow purportedly comes with his own income, nifty for those who can't afford an expensive bloke.

Apparently he doesn't drink or smoke either, so there's even more money to keep in the bank.

Sounds like a bargain!
