Human Trafficking Isn’t Funny (or is it?)

So, some guy decided to sell his parents on Craigslist (copycat):

The ad reads as follows: “Perfectly good parents- $155. Got lots of use out of these guys over the past 50 years but it’s time to move on. Excellent overall condition. Still plenty of life left in them….”

The ad goes on, but you get the picture. It’s true, one Connecticut man actually put his sweet parents up for sale on Craigslist.

“I was trying to think of something unique and of great value,” said Michael Amatrudo of Madison.

The thing is, though, unlike the poor kid who tried to sell a 5-year-old online he didn’t get arrested. Last time I checked, human trafficking is illegal…and selling the elderly is just as bad as selling kids (if not worse). Maybe the cops just got bored of responding to these lame (and apparently popular) gag-posts.
