    For sale: Week-old baby, $10,000

    Vancouver police considering charges over online ad offering baby girl for $10,000

    A B.C. grandmother was browsing the popular classifieds website Craigslist last Friday when she came across the shocking ad that prompted her to call police. "A new baby girl, seven days old, healthy and very cute," read the ad. "Can't afford and unexpected. Looking for a good home. Please call ASAP."
    Within hours of her call, officers tracked the number of a stolen cellphone listed in the ad to an apartment in downtown Vancouver.
    When officers arrived, they found four adults inside, including the 26-year-old father and the 23-year-old mother breastfeeding the baby. Police didn't identify the couple.
    "Of course, the first thing out of their mouth is, they said it was just a hoax," Const. Tim Fanning, of the Vancouver Police Department, told a news conference on Tuesday.

    Hoax how? How is this even remotely a joke? How could any human possibly find this amusing or funny?

    I bet if the cops went there with $10K it wouldn't have been a hoax.
