This April's Fool's Day Prank is Strange in a Few Ways

April Fool's day pranks vary in silliness, seriousness and extremity and as far as those things go, this one is a big one. A 27-year old medical student that goes by the pseudonym Elizabeth Raine plans to auction off her virginity for $400,000 on April Fool's day.

With Internet auctioning, people can buy and sell whatever they want. Elizabeth Raine is taking this very literally and selling something that is not normally publicly sold for a very high bidding price. Elizabeth Raine is keeping her identity a secret and will reveal it only once the bid has been paid.

Considering how high profile and unusual this whole process is, it has many people believing it to be a prank. Prank or not, this was definitely a big way to ring in April Fool's day this year.
