    They have an extremely weird sense of humour.

    Somehow it is funny to me simply because it was now said to be a joke. Not so funny if they were at all serious of course. Reminds me of the threats I used to make about selling my parent's dogs on eBay. Almost as funny but sometimes twice as serious.

    Is this the same couple that set-up this listing because the baby cries too much? I thought the baby was not going back to them.

    Even as a joke it is rather crude. If you think about how many steps it takes to post a listing on ebay, this is more than a casual joke such as a blog post.

    Yep, it is a joke, or we were selling the picture of the brat.

    At least wait until they are in their teens to sell the brats.

    Though it would probably be easier to get rid of them on MySpace or Facebook these days.

    I find this absolutely hilarious. Perhaps I'm a bit of a cynic.

    I found it a bit humorous, but I'm sure the kid won't as they are older and understood what was going on.. Ah what am I saying. I bet the kid is pretty devastated already
