    Boy being sold on ebay

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050506/...t/boy_for_sale

    HAZEN, N.D. - A prank that involved putting a high school senior up for bids on an online auction service has landed the boy and one of his classmates in trouble.

    The teenagers have lost their computer privileges for the rest of the school year, Hazen Principal Ed Boger said.

    Dana Mattheis, the mother of the boy being "sold" on e-Bay, said she thought the prank was funny.

    ............

    Mattheis said the ad contained nothing inappropriate and the boys were just joking around.

    The only bidders were two of the boys' friends, who ran the price up to $3,300.

    The auction has been pulled from e-Bay.

    I've put my teenager up on EBAY for sale many times and there's never been bids... what am I doing wrong?

    Maybe I HAVE TO PAY THEM to take my teen away!

    Anyone with teenagers understands this post.

    LOL seems like a harmless prank to me.
