    Couple 'raise' Cabbage Patch doll

    A couple from the US state of Maryland have "raised" a Cabbage Patch doll as their only son for 19 years.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    That couple is nuts. No doubt about it. Sheesh!

    Why didn't they just adopt a real, live boy to be their son? (Considering they're nuts, I'm glad they didn't. I wonder if they tried.)

    I saw that and they are nuts. This is probably way better than these two actually reproducing!!

    Remember the Cabbage Patch frenzy... people sleeping outside k-mart all night because they heard 3 might be available the next day? It was crazy.

    I feel sorry for these people... but it is also kind of disturbing.

    I saw a story about them on tv.....well it takes all kinds I guess. It is funny how both adults went along with this.....I guess that saying "water seeks its own level" is accurate here.

    the reason why?

    cause dolls always do what they are supposed to do, they don't make messes, and they don't talk back!
