A MAN has advertised an 'animal print sofa' on a buy and sell Facebook page - but can you tell what's wrong?

Terry Howarth posted the 'like new' sofa on the 'buy, sell and swap' group priced at £525.

But Facebook users were quick to Terry's prank - the animal print was merely patchy, ripped leather.

The joke cheered up a lot of people however, and similar-styled jokes have been doing the rounds online in recent days.

Some users fell for the joke though - and even offered bids for the less-than-good sofa.

One user wrote: "Put some damn eczema cream on it before selling it."

Another commented: "Is it real giraffe skin?"

A third posted: "Looks like it has been attacked by a lion."
