eBaby on Buy-it-Now

May 25, 2008 at 8:14 (Health, News)

BBC News are reporting that authorities have taken a seven month-old baby into protective custody after eBayers tattle-tailed on the auction.  Described as ‘nearly new’ and for use in a baby carrier or a stroller, the seller went on to give precise dimensions of the item for sale.

When eBay ended the auction after just a few hours, no bids had yet been placed – buyers were no doubt waiting for the last minute to snipe the infant for their collections.

Methinks a certain police force badly need to grow themselves a sense of humour.  Once again, it’s safe to conclude that the internet is perhaps not the best place for sarcasm.  For her brave efforts, All Things Uncertain offer the poor mother (who’s now being made to undergo psychiatric evaluation) a brief but resonant round of applause.
