Yeap, i can’t find what’s funny on it.
In fact, not only he can sell it on his blog, but he can give it for free, earning money with ads.

Yes. As long as it remains 100% GPL. If you’ll try to sell it under other license – it will be 100% illegal.

@RubenBristian, @pezflash guys, I understand that he can do it and I’m totally fine with it. I just find this very funny and amusing that guy contacted author directly with this sort of question :)

Also some user asked from woothemes on themeforest:

User: It would also be allowed to give it away as a free download?

woothemes:Yes, those are all part of the freedoms that are granted to you by the GPL licensing of our products.

Collis posted quite a thread about GPL licensing a while ago. It provides some handy bits of information.
