This Just In

I read a story in the news this afternoon about the couple in Germany who put their baby up for sale on Ebay. At first I was appalled, but then I read what the Ebay ad said... "Offering my nearly new baby for sale, as it has gotten too loud. It is a male baby, nearly 28 inches (70 cm) long and can be used either in a baby carrier or a stroller." Then I wanted to laugh, because quite frankly, after reading the ad, I really do think it was a joke. But then I was reminded that even if it was a joke, it really isnt funny to actually put an ad selling your baby on the Internet. Thats pretty dumb. And the 23 year old mom got her baby taken away because of it.

What do you think?
Funny, just plain stupid, or a little of both?
