For the first time ever, a four year old child has been sold on an internet auction site.
The boy was sold at 16:43 on the 20th of December, to a young couple in Hull, England. The selling of the boy has caused much outrage and has been seen as a breach of human rights, many parents have been outraged and angered.
One angry parent had this to say: "I gave my little girl away to the orphanage for nothing! If I would have known I could have sold her for a bit of cash I may well have been able to flog her in the car boot sale!"
Foetus is the current name of the child as the parents decided to call the boy after its predecessor and older model, The Foetus. But with newer models being released all the time the government has criticised the recent trends. Gordon Brown is trying to crack down on the newer models.
"First they can talk, next they can make bombs. They could potentially become the next terrorist threat if we are not careful. All we need is for them to start producing these "babies" in Iraq or Afghanistan, then we have a massive problem."
It is believed the child had not lived up to the standards of its parents, who expected it to do a lot more after it was conceived. They decided it was time to sell up and let someone else have a go, as it would make an excellent Christmas present.
The sellers were Mr & Mrs Jeffery and Kat McCain, who said: "We got very bored of the child, it did not say much. It just made mess and we got very suspicious of it, it often looked at out credit cards and tried to eat money. It was at this point we decided to sell the child as it may be trying to steal our identities; but we are sure it will make an excellent Christmas gift."
They certainly cashed in on the four year at a price of £33.60. The bidding was highly competitive between three bidders; but with postage and packaging priced at £25.00 though it was not as cheap as it may have seemed at first. It has been sent special delivery and is expected to be with the buyers within 24 hours, at the house of the purchasers. The buyers refused to give a comment but we know that they are both of a Chinese ethnicity and own a dog food factory.
