Simpsons fans scramble for eBay Homer-shaped glue blob

A blob of dried glue that bears a vague resemblance to cartoon character Homer Simpson has attracted bids of over £2,000 on Ebay.

Seller Christopher Herbert listed the item on the auction site after noticing the glue shared some of Homer's distinctive features including his large eyes, oval-shaped head and grinning mouth.

Bidding started at just 99p, but has since increased to over £2,051 after 10 bids.

In his listing, Mr Herbert describes the item as the 'missing piece' in any Simpsons fan's collection and described it as being "made naturally by an overflowing tube of Uhu glue!"

The 36-year-old Londoner, told Metro: ‘I was amazed at how the bidding took off.’

Bidding ends on Monday.
