One of the joys of living in the Merry Old Land of Oz is that no one uses Craigslist. They do have a Craigslist AU but no one uses it. We have this thing called Gumtree which works the same way but doesn’t seem to attract the freaks that Craigslist does.
Anyway, this debarcle didn’t happen on Craigslist or Gumtree. It happened on Facebook. Misty VanHorn (22) of Oklahoma, was arrested over the weekend for trying to sell her two kids online. Now why would she do that? Were they annoying her? She didn’t have enough money to feed them? Close, but no banana. She didn’t have enough money, alright. She didn’t have enough money to pay her boyfriend’s BAIL! So instead of hocking some jewellery, selling the car or her iPhone or even selling her nasty arse to desperate Johns, she took to Facebook to scrape up some dosh by selling her children. She repeatedly offered her 10 month old daughter for $970 or a package deal with her son for $3890. She was in the middle of discussing the sale with a woman from Fort Smith in Arkansas when she was arrested. Her message to this woman read “Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 mins away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1000”. I can just hear the hick twang. Because Misty tried to sell her daughter to someone out of state, she may be facing federal charges.
Luckily the kids weren’t harmed, and now they’re in the care of human services. Depending on what the penis did to get into jail in the first place, she would’ve been better to let him sit there and think about what he’s done.
