Brother for Sale


Wow people, the hits just keep on coming. A woman in India was arrested for attempting to sell her baby to a rickshaw driver for $130 dollars (or 6,500 rupees for those of you as obsessed as I am with the word ‘rupees’ after seeing Slumdog).

 A few irreverant thoughts:

1. If that’s the going rate for babies, maybe now the Octuplet mom can get off of foodstamps and/or save up for more plastic surgery.

2. I Kinda wish The Jonas Brother’s mom had sold them to rickshaw drivers.

3.  Maybe I should be a rickshaw driver


Sun’s gonna rise,


Listening to: Myself whistle “Mama Mia”. Not the best way to make friends around here.

On my mind: I’ll give anyone a quarter if you can name the reference in this post’s title. Except you, Emma.

    I don’t know why I know this-kind of embarrassing…the Olsen twins’ song?? If not, delete this and pretend it was never sent-Lol.
    I too wish that the Jonas’ brothers mother would have been hard up for cash as well-good call.

    “Brother for Sale… only 50 cents.” First, I love your blog. And now I’m going to abandon absolutely all of my dignity and say that I tragically used to LOVE Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s “My First Video” in the early ’90s and I know they had a song on there called “Brother for Sale” where they kept knocking down the price they were trying to sell their brother for. Of course, just like every episode of “Full House,” lessons were learned and they realized they just couldn’t sell him. Ah, the early-mid ’90s…

    …hoping that was actually your reference and I didn’t just share that kind of information for no reason…

    I believe you are referencing one of my favorite Shel Silverstein poems with your title. What a classic!

    love the blog…found you through my cousin—keep it comin’, please!

    Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! I was totally a member of their fan club! (I’m 21 now) Best movies ever though! I wish I still had them – I’m pretty sure I would watch them on my sick days.
    Love your blog!

    Ashley and I use to sing the other Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen song,

    ” I am the cute one, she’s just my sister!” “I’m sorry!”
