Man accidentally buys himself a yak after taking sleeping pills

A man woke up to find himself at a $3,000 loss, after splurging out on a yak while on sleeping pills.

The unnamed man accidentally ordered himself a Golden Tibetan Yak Cow off online for the price tag of $3,075.99 (£2,169) - that's including shipping - at 2 o'clock in the morning.

Having discovered the purchase the next day, he frantically called his bank to try to stop the payment and thankfully he was successful.

A picture of purchase was posted online by Reddit user carefree_dude, a "friend of a friend" of the mysterious online shopper, for the world to see.

And what does the would-be yak owner have to say in the aftermath?

Writing on Facebook he said: "Oh I'm sure you would've all liked for me to just let them deliver it, but a) my apartment complex would boot my ass onto the street. The only thing worse than being homeless is being a homeless yak owner. b) My beagle Lucy would lose her mother fucking mind. c) I'm an astrophysicist, not Baron Moneybags Von Richfuck so I can't just spend $3,000 on a yak to amuse the internet."
