A Chinese man who set up an online business selling dead mosquitoes says he’s received 10,000 orders in just two days. Nin Nan, of Shanghai, came up with the idea of selling mosquitoes he killed to attract visitors to his online jewellery shop.

“I locked myself in the room, thinking hard of a promotion plan. With a ‘pa’ sound and a dead mosquito, I came up with this weird idea,” he told Qianlong News.

Nin sells his mosquito corpses for six yuan – about 45p – each. His ad reads: “Truly killed by human hands. Can be used for science studies, decoration, and collection.”

Why do I find this hard to believe?
