Selling Babies On Ebay

According to a story published out of Berlin, Germany via Reuters, police apprehended a 23 year old woman after she tried to sell her 8 month old son on Ebay. The mother told police it was a joke, but I don’t think the police thought it was funny. By the way, the Ebay auction read as follows:

Baby — collection only. Offer my nearly new baby for sale because it cries too much. Male, 70 cm long.

The opening bid was $1.57 with no bidders during the two hours the auction was online before being yanked off shortly there after. Perhaps the crying aspect of the deal put people off from bidding. Would you buy someone on eBay, let alone a baby?

    omg…wow thats just bad…lol and no way in hell would I bid on a person on ebay, but the description is hilarious

  2. @Sierra Koch – I agree, it is sad and her defense continues to be “It was just a joke”. Apparently, she wanted to see if anyone would bid on it… what a way to go about it
