Ever dream of slurping down fettuccine across the table from the most wanted man in the world? You can now bid on lunch with Julian Assange.
Although Assange is being put up in a posh English countryside estate by a supporter, his legal bills are mounting in his fight against extradition to Sweden to face rape charges. So Wikileaks is auctioning off eight seats at a fancy lunch at "one of London's finest restaurants" hosted by Assange and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek, with whom Assange is speaking at the Troxy concert hall in London. Hey, if you're going to help a man avoid facing rape charges, you may as well do it in style.
According to the eBay listing—one seat is at more than 1,000 pounds with four days to go—the winning bid gets:
- The cost of the lunch
- Taxis from the lunch to the event
- And a front row seat at the event at the Troxy
How much would you pay for this unique opportunity? Doesn't matter, since you'll be outbid by every intelligence agency in the world anyway. Guess you'll have to make do with your Julian Assange tote bag.
