Happy Valentine's Day?

Things got a bit out of hand when a British man "jokingly" tried to sell his girlfriend on eBay for not doing housework.

More than 50 bids poured in -- one as high as $1,180.

Shaun Coles took down the ad after realizing it violated eBay policy, and insisted the listing was just a joke.

"I wouldn't really sell her for anything," he told ITV.

The ad featured a rather unflattering photo of Debbie Moran and even referred to her as an "old woman," according to the Daily Dot.

Still, Moran said she loves her boyfriend of six years and knows the post wasn't malicious.

"It's just a joke that got a bit out of hand," she said.
