The Kate Middleton Jelly Bean

A British man who found a jelly bean that looks (sort of) like Kate Middleton is selling it for an expected £500.

In a turn of events that shows quite how mad the world is more than anything else, the man- Wesley Hosie- has gained internet fame with his unique jelly bean.
