Oh, please!

A German couple has had their baby taken away because they advertised him for sale on eBay for one Euro.

The ad read, "Offering my nearly new baby for sale, as it has gotten too loud. It is a male baby, nearly 28 inches (70 cm) long and can be used either in a baby carrier or a stroller," which pretty much sounds like a joke to me.

The 23-year old mother is quoted as saying, "It was only a joke. I just wanted to see if someone would make an offer. They've taken my son to hospital and I've got to take psychiatric tests next week."

Apparently it didn't sound like a joke to the police.
