Making A Killing

But It’s Hard To Keep Up With These Orders

A Shanghai man who set up an online business selling dead mosquitoes says he's received 10,000 orders in just two days. He said he came up with the idea of selling mosquitoes he killed to attract visitors to his online jewellery shop. He sells his mosquito corpses for six yuan - about 90 cents - each.

FOOTNOTE: Not a sting.
