I couldn't resist posting this.

BERLIN, Germany (AP) -- Authorities in southern Germany said Saturday that they have taken custody of a 7-month-old boy after his parents posted an ad on eBay offering to sell him for one euro, the equivalent of $1.57.

Peter Hieber, a spokesman for police in the Bavarian town of Krumbach, said the baby was placed in the care of youth services in the southwestern Allgaeu region, although the child's 23-year-old mother insisted that the ad was only a joke.

Authorities have launched an investigation into possible child trafficking against the baby's mother and 24-year-old father, neither of whom was identified.

"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," police quoted the ad as reading.

No offers were made for the child in the two hours and 30 minutes the ad was posted on Tuesday. EBay later deleted the posting but assisted police in tracking down the parents.

Several people who saw the ad alerted police.


I don't know whether to be amused or offended. Thoughts?

That's so funny and sad at the same time.
Some people are taking this way too seriously. The parents DID say that it was a joke, even though that's not exactly good humour.
Poor baby... his parents tried to sell him and no one was willing to spend 1 euro on him

haha, yeah I read this news in our local paper this morning, I'm hoping it was just a hoax/a bad joke and there was no real baby involved

I went onto eBay and bought a baby for the lulz. I didn't know it was real, until I got reports from others that it was. It was a real baby that was being sold by its parents for one dollar.

You can give him/her to an orphan.

and I also would like to kick those parents' asses, but killing a kid is not the right thing, they don't are responsible for our lacking of condoms xD

Exactly.

And what I find even more worrying about the police and state is that they force the parents tol be examied by a psychiatrist.

at the obvious joke, i laugh

though i think requiring that the parents be evaluated is a bit excessive.

Maybe it was a test rather than a joke? To see if people would be willing to buy really anything on an internet auction...? Just a thought...

I know that's what I was thinking... but social experiments are frowned upon unless you have a master's degree in sociology, anthropology or psychology or are making money off of it (aka Trigger Happy TV, Balls of Steel).

Yes but then what you also gotta put into consideration.....some people wouldn't entertain such nonsense, meaning like they wouldn't spend a euro on the kid to make the situation look legitimate and okay. That's sort of how I feel anyway. Then when it grows up, how do you explain that to him

what's going on with these people man
