A 21-year old Chinese couple WITH THREE CHILDREN sold them all to afford their internet cafe gaming addictions. The first child fetched less than $500, while the second two netted almost $4,600. No word what was wrong with the first one.
The couple was turned in after Li Lin, the father, told his mother what happened. She took them to the police, where they apparently showed no remorse.
"We didn't want to raise them," they said. "We just want to sell them for some money."
The couple met in an Internet cafe in 2007, and shortly after meeting quickly consummated the relationship and moved in together, spending most of their time playing video games in Internet cafes. Shortly after their first child was born in 2008, they left it at home and traveled 30km to play video games.
That's f***ed up. Granted when my dogs are bad I threaten to sell them to gypsies for mended pots and pans, but I'd never actually do it. Although, now that I think about it, I actually have sold children before. Get it? The sperm bank. Flushed a whole lot down the shower drain too.
