Black Market + Ambassador = ?

So I just thought of this while reading the "really bad card ideas" thread (mischievous face), but actually it applies to cards that already exist, so hey! What happens if you reveal a card from the black market with ambassador? Does it go back to the BM deck? Does the first available opponent gain it? does it just disappear from the game? Can you not pick to return it to the supply at all, since the supply is not from whence it came?
Obviously, this won't come up much - maybe most often in a Possession game.

I tried it in solitaire, it says that the card can't be returned to the supply.

Edit: Same story with tournament prizes.

Ambassador can only return cards that have a Supply pile. If you play Ambassador and reveal a card without a supply pile (like a Prize card or a Black Market card), nothing happens. You keep the revealed card and nobody gains a copy. This has been explicitly confirmed on BGG by... somebody. I forget whether it was Donald X or Jeff Wolfe.
