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 only want­ed eight bucks for the 5‑year-old. A Web surfer in Cana­da noticed the ad and con­tact­ed Scot­tish author­i­ties. 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.

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