    Some lady tried to sell her baby here in town behind a PetSmart. For 20 bucks cash.

    The prospective buyer said "Hold tight, I gotta go to an ATM to get money". Then proceeded to call the police and came back with them.

    A joke!? That is one cruel joke!

    And seriously, only 5 years in prison! You have got to be kidding me.

    People, it`s obviously a baby is going to be loud. Don`t have a baby if you don`t want it screaming in your face all the time!

    I`ve heard about this before somewhere. And why did they blur out a 7month old babies face? I mean it`s not like there`s any need, they change so much in the first few months that all babies look pretty much the same to strangers anyway.

    5 years in jail for that is insane as well! I mean it`s not like they were ever going to get away with it, just take the child off them and give then a fine.

    I agree with purplesta, not really in good taste if it was meant to be a joke.

    What would have been funny is if someone would have put a bid for the baby.

    James Blunt wasn`t selling his sister. He put up an ad for some guy to take her to a funeral that she didn`t have a ride to since her flights were cancelled.

    Surprisingly a very very very rich guy picked her up in a helicopter and later they got married.

    True love*~*~*

    I love how at least one pro-choicer chimes in on stuff like this.

    Germany is a pro choice country. It obviously didn`t help if true. You`re also ignoring that most abused children are wanted children that did not live up to their parents expectations, not unwanted children.

    All in all though 5 years in prison and having your kid taken off you is a ridiculous punishment for a couple of people being silly. Quite frankly they have no proof they would have actually sold the child. If they wanted that they should have waited for the sale to end.

    I was an unwanted child, I never claimed that Germany isn`t pro-choice and I can see the joke.

    It was just a joke that back fired I hope, but don`t just believe that it is a joke just because they used that as a line of defense, and don`t presume that just because there is free choice of abortion that all people will take it, some people don`t regret thier child until after thier birth.

    "You`re also ignoring that most abused children are wanted children that did not live up to their parents expectations, not unwanted children." Personally I think this is bullcrap. I was an unwanted and an abused child. Abused children are many things, but not living up to a parents expectations isn`t a reason for abuse, sure its an excuse, but its not the cause.

    They should just fine the couple and send them to parenting classes or something.

    As long as the child isn`t hurt I don`t give two poos what they spout on ebay.

    That reminded me of GTA IV radio ads about buying an designer baby. "And if you`re dissatisfied, just throw it in the trash and we`ll send you a new one!"

    Actually, when seen in text instead of heard in a fake advertising voice, that`s really sick. But then, when is disposing of/selling a baby not sick? I mean, it`s not even a desperately poor country!

    Holy crap, Baalthazag, I snorted Dr. Pepper out of my nose, thanks for that. I`d totally take the husband, by the way. But anyways, I honestly think she was playing it off as a joke, if she wasn`t, she wouldn`t have put the bold lettering at the bottom, and would`ve just made some humorous comments, like the ad Baalthazag posted. That being said, she could just be really bad at telling jokes.

    Did I say that I was against thier choice? No. If they want to have kids, thier choice and only thiers.

    Don`t jump to conclusions just because I made a flippant remark in a forum.

    Ye, perhaps I should have made my sacrasm clear, or perhaps you should stop presumming the world is full of idiots.
