Anyone need a snowblower?

On Monday, visitors to online trading site eMoo were surprised to find a “reliable, four-stroke” snowblower for sale with an asking price of $950.99.

The advertisement, posted by Martijn Dijkstra, said the device is in “like new” condition, adding: “Climates are changing! Be repaired [sic].”

Speaking to The Royal Gazette, Mr Dijkstra confirmed that the advertisement was meant as a joke.

“I'm just try to get a smile on people's faces,” he said. “There's so much serious sad news. I had fun [with] it for weeks, I hope more people do. Maybe you need British humour for it!”

He added that he has spent time in Bermuda before, and is hoping to return to the Island in the near future.
