Students are selling these "free meal" tokens on eBay
A group of students have come up with a way of getting people free food, disposing of their beard trimmings, and paying for their final year project all in one go.
In order to raise money for their final year Creative Advertising degree show at Bucks New Uni, two students have started selling beard hair as "free meal tokens" on eBay.
All you have to do to claim your "free meal" is drop one of student Jord's beard hair into your meal and call over a waiter and explain to them that you have a beard hair in your meal.
As their eBay advert puts it, in bold writing:
"Ever had a meal that you wish you didn’t have to pay for?
Ever wanted a meal that you couldn’t afford?
We have the answer! My beard hair provides the ultimate get out clause..
‘Oi waiter! What’s this f***ing hair in my meal?’
‘Oh I am so sorry sir, it doesn’t look like one of ours, I’ll get it sorted for you.’
A short while later after you’ve finished your meal…
‘We are so sorry for the incident sir, we’ve fully refunded your meal and given you a complimentary voucher to come back again if you wish.’"
If the waiter insists on DNA testing, you are in the clear as the beard hair has never been attached to your own face, and was sealed in a DNA-proof baggie until you put it in your linguini.
Jord's beard hairs, which can become your free meal token for only £2.50.
"I've sold about ten hairs"
Hairy student Jord said that some of his hairs had already sold, but he had plenty more to shave off and sell off at a moments notice:
"About ten of my hairs are out on the loose ready to get a free meal for someone, but I've got plenty more to give. Everyone who has heard about it has said that it's a sick idea, one student said: 'Ooh. I can try a fancy curry now'," he told Ladbible.
"Our dream is to work at a top advertising agency in London, so the more money we get, the better we can show ourselves off."
Jord's less hairy friend Lib joined him on the venture. The pair currently have very good seller ratings on eBay.
"I thought that was pretty cool, like this could open up the world for people, letting them try new foods without all the cost."
