Baby For Sale

baby for saleA Florida woman was charged with trying to sell her infant son in order to pay for a new car.

Wow. I didn't even know Madonna sold cars.

What happened was, the baby's grandmother brokered the deal and initially demanded $75,000 (£47,000) but agreed to cut the price to $30,000 when told the prospective buyer could not get a bank loan.

Shame she didn't have twins. I've seen Antiques Roadshow, you always get much more for a matching pair.

The mother of the eight-week-old boy, Stephanie Bigbee Fleming, 22, of Bradenton, Florida, was to receive $9,000 of the proceeds.

Wow. That's a really small cut. And milk farmers moan about the money they get. Think of all the work this woman put in.

The person they wanted to sell the baby to alerted police and worked with them during the negotiations. So let me get this right. They'd called the police and were haggling just for the sake of it. Well, it's good practise I guess. If you can get a good deal on someone's baby buying that new flatscreen TV should be a breeze.
