Man Advert­ises ‘Son for Sale’ on Inter­net

There are some things you just don’t joke about. Like selling your son over the Inter­net. A fath­er in Scot­land did just that: “Hyper­act­ive kid for sale, good at vacu­um­ing, not great at wash­ing dishes because he’s too short. Guar­an­teed to annoy,” the ad read.

The father/​seller said that he pos­ted the ad about two years ago as a joke then for­got about it until police came knock­ing. He’s been told to remove the ad. Besides, his son, now 7, is tall enough to wash the dishes.

It looks like this since has been called off, and it turns out that the ori­gin­al story was blown out of pro­por­tion.

Unfor­tu­nately, this one isn’t satir­ic­al at all.
