Can I imprison them within a giant hamster wheel and use them to generate electricity?

where is that circus when you need it? How much are they paying these days anyway?

McDreamy Tue 30-Sep-08 18:44:55

Would that be a buy it now or an auction? grin

Are they cute? I'd quite like another one but can't be doing with the pregnancy/childbirth bit.....

PoppyFox Tue 30-Sep-08 18:47:37

Careful!! Diddn't some Dutch couple get into trouble for that! Obviously they meant it as a joke... The police didn't get the joke. I don't know what the highest bid was grin

MrsMertle Tue 30-Sep-08 18:50:11


was only joking!

Hope no police type people are reading!

I've tried, you don't get much money wink

PoppyFox Tue 30-Sep-08 18:53:37

If they put their toys away and eat mushrooms I'll give you a tenner for the pair.

Dont worry, we have all had days like that... I have been known to threaten it to my to.

Not much different to my parents 'phoning' the swap shop for a nice child when I was young!

MrsMertle Tue 30-Sep-08 18:56:28

the eldest is 9 so is quite good at general household chores grin

Let me know what you get for them. I've considered putting mine on there but not sure if what I'd get for them would be worth it.

Dh has talked about doing this grin (In jest obviously!!! smile)

I'd rather be involved in a Saturday Swap Shop situation...swap one 18mth old DD for a cuppa on a Saturday morning?
Any takers?

DuffyMoon Wed 01-Oct-08 07:18:50

would you swap an 18 month old for a stroppy 13 year old dd AND a cuppa

Themasterandmargaritas Wed 01-Oct-08 07:28:08

I will swap the 13 year old for a single minded and pedantic 7 year old dd and a naughty naughty naughty 4 year old boy. She will have to be good with toddlers though. If you are lucky I will threw in some Kenyan sunshine.

YABVU. It's against Ebay policies. I'd feel the urge to grass you up, I'm afraid!

Mind you, if you want to go 'off Ebay', I always fancied having a big family, but my womb wasn't very co-operative. I'll give you a tenner for em

I've got plenty of room and I'm sure my 7 year old would be bemused by it all!
