The Uppity Bastard

Smug Life

Well, it is kind of used…

Social Services in Germany have taken custody of a 7 month old baby whose parents tried to sell on eBay.  The opening bid; 1 Euro, or $1.57 for my non-conversionists.  Wow, sounds like quite the deal.  Surprisingly the parents did not receive a single bid in the 2 and half hours that the baby was up for auction.  I think people were just waiting until time was almost up to get that last bid in.  The best part about this story (besides the obvious) is the ad itself: “offering my nearly new baby for sale as it has gotten too loud.  It is a male baby, nearly 28 inches long and can be used either in a baby carrier or a stroller.”

Not surprisingly, this came from the Bavarian region of Germany who continues to amaze me.  My favorite part of this is that the ad tells you that the baby could be used in a stroller or a baby carrier, it is such a versatile product.  God bless the internet, just think back in the day if you didn’t want your baby you had to throw it in a dumpster, now you can get paid for it in a competitive shopping environment.  I can’t believe no one bid on it.  Stupid people, wouldn’t know a good deal if it hit them in the face, or spit up on their shoulder.

  1. Clearly, the ad was a joke. Loosen up, people.
