Greenwell proposed selling two of the couple's children to the Romeros for $2,000, saying that her job as a truck driver made it hard to take care of the children, said Capt. Keith Dupre of the Evangeline Parrish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana.Y'know, you'd think that a bit of foresight would show that this sort of thing isn't legal and is kinda tough to cover up. It's difficult to make a cockatoo look like a couple of rug rats, even if you squint real hard after drinking half a case of Coors Light; someone in the trailer park is bound to notice.
The parties allegedly negotiated a trade involving the two kids, the bird and $175.
(Oh, and who got the $175? The one with the kids or the one with the bird? 'Cause that's a pretty good deal on a couple of toddlers, but even with the boot, the bird was a ripoff.)
