The reading

A woman in England is selling her bath water. It is so popular that the water has sold out. The woman is Instagram cosplay model Belle Delphine. She has over four million followers across the social media site. She posted a video to her Instagram page advertising small jars of her old bath water for $30. In the video, she said: "Gamer boys - It's time to get your gamer girl bath water." She added: "This water is not for drinking and should only be used for sentimental purposes." She then winks at the camera and lets water from her mouth drip into a small bottle. Thousands of her fans eagerly placed an order for the water. Her entire stock of 500 jars of the water sold out within two days.
