Lordship bundled with two hotels and two Bentleys

David Piper,
an eccentric British millionaire, has decided to sell his life on eBay. The offer includes his dubious Lord of the Manor of Warleigh title, two hotels, two Bentleys and a bunch of paintings.

In the ad, Piper claims that he decided to sell everything and move on after he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. "For sale as a whole or in part... Can include David, the existing eccentric lord of the manor, physically, as wellm,to a suitable purchaser." Well, at least he hasn't lost his sense of humor.

Piper is hoping to raise £4 million, although he claims the assets are worth at least £6 million. He has received more than a hundred bids so far and the current top bid is 1.3 million quid.
