19-year-old Autumn Braden wanted to "see how eBay worked", and as we all know, selling your two-year-old cousin is the best way to learn!
Braden auctioned the girl while she was babysitting last week, posting, "Kid for sale, an adorable child for sale ... Can clean and hold a decent conversation. Very lovable, but I just grew out of her." A concerned citizen bid $US1000 for the girl, then immediately called police when her offer was accepted. They girl is now back with her mother, and Braden has yet to be charged. She says it's obvious the post, "wasn't meant to be taken seriously".
