Anyone know how to go about doing this? Is it possible to schedule a pickup, or does one just have to wait for some gypsies to, you know, gypsy on by?

And what's a typical price schedule?

Don't you have to pay the gypsies to take your children? I thought that was the standard procedure. :)

I'd think that a bottle of gypsie tears would be a good price. To cure what ails you.

So, I have to mail the children to the gypsies, or what?

Aw, come on, you know you'd miss them as soon as the wagon turned the corner, and then you'd run inside and try to make more...A better idea might be to simply curse them ("May you have children just like you!"), then spoil your grandchildren to ensure that the curse comes true.:toth:

MAX.

I'm not a parent but I was sold to the gypsies.

And what's a typical price schedule?I don't know, as my mom was always going to sell us to the (American) Indians.

I don't know. Ever since they busted the Jews that would buy them for parts the price of a whole kid has been in flux.

I think if you love them, you wouldn't sell them to the gypsies, sell them to the carnies. They would have more fun that way.

Here's everything there is to know: http://tinyurl.com/l83jkm ;-)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-512713/Thousands-gypsy-children-brought-Britain-work-pickpockets-warns-MP.htmlSold for up to 20,000 each
"Intelligence has been received that children and adults are being sold between the gangs in the UK as well as being trafficked into the UK - evidence of sales for amounts of between 20,000 for one or more persons including babies and very young children," he said.
"Intelligence has also been intercepted that reveals a criminally active child can earn approximately 100,000 per year for the organised criminal network that controls her or him."

Take them down to the car dealership. The Cash for Clunkers will give you thousands. Oh, wait, never mind. That's for trading in the parents. ;)

Why would you want to sell your Pseudo-nerds*?



* Not "pseudo-nerds", as in part nerd, part something else (probably "geek"), but "Pseudo-nerds", as in nerds raised by Pseud.

I would have thought pseudo-nerds would mean fake nerds.

One sister for sale!
One sister for sale!
One crying and spying young sister for sale!
I'm really not kidding,
So who'll start the bidding?
Do I hear a dollar?
A nickel?
A penny?
Oh, isn't there, isn't there, isn't there any
One kid who will buy this old sister for sale,
This crying and spying young sister for sale?

Tie a pink bandana to your mailbox flag. It is a little known fact that the USPS is run entirely by gypsies. You get $2 per pound plus $1000 for each curiously-shaped birthmark. I believe you are a stamp collector. Your postal carrier may be able to hook you up with something you like as long as you don't wait until December for the Christmas rush.

I'm not telling you. Your children must be perfect angels. Haven't you been keeping them away from Dora the Explorer? I thought that's all good parents had to do.

Necessary, but, alas, not sufficient.

On a sidenote, my kids were perfect angels this weekend (no, seriously). I loaded them up with Operation* themed 'fruit snacks' and took them to the pool. They were joys to be around. I'm serious.


* you know, the game. Yeah, I have no idea why they would commercialize junk food with that old game either, but they did. I don't even think my kids know what it was. My wife buys this sh1t for them. I make them eat real fruit before they are allowed to have a 'fruit snack'. I'm like, you want to snack on fruit, here's an apple. They like mom more than me though.

So we can have threads about selling children to gypsies, but I show one harmless picture of a California Cheeseburger and it gets deleted?

I'll take that as a compliment. I do recognize it as a poem by Shel Silverstein, though.

Option 2 - now spoilered, although the quotes below aren't, so, if you like children, don't click this and don't scroll down.
