The Internet never fails to surprise us. The strangest things can become massively popular in certain circles online, like Steamed Hams - a Simpsons meme that has gotten badly out of control - or Logan Paul, whose popularity is perhaps even more baffling.

Well, after we told the story of Paul from S Club 7 yesterday, a new phenomenon has arisen on one of the biggest sites on the net.

Paul is flogging his Best Newcomer BRIT Award from 2002 on eBay and has attracted 127 bids so far, with the price now standing at a huge £66,000 ($90,000).

As with the time Abz put his BRIT Award from 2000 up for sale on the site, we don't know whether he will actually receive this amount but it's more than most of us will earn in a year, so he's gotta take the chance.

Anyway, the internet has jumped at the chance either to take the piss, or a really long shot at making some money by posting drawings of the award in different situations.

Seriously, go and search on eBay for 'BRIT award'. There are quite a few of them. Too many to be an accident.

They include such gems as 'Brit Award Best Newcomer Presented To Paul Cattermole sclub7 with donald j trump' and 'Brit Award Best Newcomer Presented To Paul Cattermole Sclub7 in pen by a 12yold'.

If low-level pop awards from the noughties aren't your thing, there are others that you can buy too.

Even the top acting award on offer - the Academy Award - can now be yours in glorious pen drawn form through the magic of the internet.

Selling as 'award genuine pen drawing of an Oscar award, Putting Brit award in its place!' it currently has no bids, but can be bought for a measly £5 ($7).

There are also a couple of bizarre listings selling screenshots of the picture of the award, and even a 'Screenshot Of A Screenshot Of A Drawing Of A Brit Award Best Newcomer Presented' begging the question: What do these people do for a living?

Should you want to buy any of these (and let's face it, why wouldn't you?) they are going pretty cheap on eBay just now.

A drawing by one brave entrepreneur has a bid of £20 ($27) on it at the time of writing, which seems a lot until you realise that in the drawing the BRIT award is shouting: "Ain't no party like an S Club party" - after which it seems like a complete bargain.

That's enough Internet for one day, I think.
