She took my idea!

I saw this news story today and was insulted they took my idea! I’ve threatened to put  A on eBay since birth. Um, daily. When he was younger it may have been hourly. I can’t remember, those days stole my brain.

For crying out loud, it was obviously a joke listing, not child trafficking. Give the kid back to his parents. It’s hard enough having a 7 month old without the authorities getting their panties in a knot. Comedy releases the pressure.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to write up a listing now. A two-for-one offer. Both blond, blue-eyed boys with delicious senses of humor.

On second thought, I’ll just keep ’em.

    I just kept saying I would send Little Dude to live with a circus… The way it was written sounds just like a joke, too, so I think they went overboard in taking the child from the couple.

    Doesn’t anybody have a sense of humor anymore?

    My question is how much are you paying to have someone take them off your hands. My mom would regularly ask complete strangers this when frustrated by public antics of one of us 3 boys. If I remember right, $20 was her pat offer. Of course $20 was real money back then and not just a couple of gallons of gas like it will be by July4.

    Seriously!?! People have way too much time on their hands to get this upset over a joke. Sheesh.

    It’s official. The world has lost its sense of humor.

    That’s why I just threaten to leave them at WalMart. It’s harder to track that way.
