LONDON, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Online bidding for more than 1 million frozen fruit pies sitting in a British warehouse reached $680 Monday with nearly nine days left in the eBay auction.

Pressplay Ltd., a British company specializing in the sale of surplus goods, said the 1,090,000 fruit pies, which collectively weigh 76 tons, were originally bound for the supermarket chain ASDA but they went to eBay when the order was canceled, the Daily Mail reported Monday.

Who would have the b&lls to order all those pies and cancel? And for what would you need that many? It's absurd! I would think someone's insurance would cover the loss.

here's hoping those pies are donated (maybe a sweet dessert for some homeless kids?). it's a crazy bargain, assuming the added publicity doesn't cause a bidding war.
