Chinese Couple Sold Their Children for Video Game Money
A Chinese couple have been demonstrating some true entrepreneurial spirit in their quest to do nothing but play video games at the internet cafe all day long. What genius idea did they come up with? Selling their offspring for cash! Not a bad idea.
Li Lin and Li Juan came up with the brilliant plan shortly after the birth of their second child. They sold the newborn girl for RMB3,000, not really a great price if you ask me. After burning through that money oh so quickly, they upped their game (coughcough) and sold their first-born child for a much-better RMB 30,000.
In order to keep the scheme going, they had to make a new baby, and they did, selling him for another RMB 30,000. Unfortunately, it was around this time that Li Lin’s mom found out what was going on and turned them in to the police. Apparently, it’s not legal to sell your children on the street in China, which is surprising, them being communists and all.
What a killjoy Li Lin’s mother is.
