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 , 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.
