Question Girl, 10, sells granny on eBay

Girl, 10, sells granny on eBay
http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_436626.html


LONDON - A 10-YEAR-OLD British girl has been barred from trying to sell her granny on eBay, who she complained was 'cuddly' but 'annoying,' the auction website said on Wednesday.

Zoe Pemberton wrote a light-hearted listing to sell her 61-year-old grandmother Marion Goodall, of Clacton, southeastern England, but eBay said the advert breached human trafficking regulations.

'Obviously we have rules about the selling of people,' said an eBay spokeswoman. 'We had to take it down but it was quite amusing.

'The little girl had described her grandmother as 'annoying' but had gone on to say she liked crosswords and was 'cuddly' and there were quite a few offers.'

The spokesman added: 'The advert was obviously light-hearted and had been done with the full knowledge of grandma - we do get these kind of things from time to time.' -- AFP

Beware, later your kids also do the same. Hehehehe
