Drinks and online shopping is probably the next thing you should not mix. A man, possibly single, decided to shop online during the Singles' Day sale in China, only to realise it was a terrible mistake.

The unidentified man's WeChat post went viral on Weibo. In the post, the man wrote how he clicked on Taobao to shop when he was drunk and all along he thought he had purchased only two sets of clothes.

In reality, he ended up buying a pig and a peacock. To add to it, the man also ended up purchasing a giant salamander from, South China Morning Post reported.

Although endangered species are banned by law from being traded, they are still listed on Taobao and sites as it is legal to deliver live animals by courier services in China.
