YSaC, Vol. 229: Pssst … hey! Wanna borrow a kid?

2009 March 4

This was posted in the m4w personals section:

Want a baby? Me too! – 28

I know this may sound odd, but I’m being real. I want a kid. It tax time and I want to pay less and not play the let me borrow your kid game. If you are of age and think you can handle having a kid with me, then hit me up. Maybe we can have a relationship maybe not. We may not even get to that point but lets start with lunch and meet face to face. We can do a verbal and or written agreement about me taking care of our child. I know this seems like a crazy idea, but atleast this is a real honest ad on craigslist. let me know what you think.

I can’t think of a better reason to have a child than to get a tax break. I mean, they don’t cost anything the rest of the year, so why not? It’s a win-win proposition.

Actually, if he really wants a kid, maybe this will suffice:

Child for sale – $100

Child Mannequin – about 4 ft. tall. Good shape except missing two fingers.

Maybe he could claim that his “child” is disabled and get an even bigger tax break. And maybe, if he buys enough illegal organs off of Craigslist, eventually he can make a real child!

Thanks to ekkelly and Maria for the submissions!

    A singularly silly ad considering that while it may *be* tax time, it’s way too late to claim a credit for last year. Perhaps the person is forward thinking for next year’s tax filing…nah, I think not.

    Well I know that all the taxes I got back this year made up for all the money I spent on my daughter the past year… oh wait, no, no they didn’t.

    Not to mention that if he’s hoping to have a kid this calendar year, to claim on next year’s taxes, he’s got a really limited window in which he can get the ball rolling, so to speak.

    I was just going to say. It’s the 8th/9th week of the year. She’s gotta find someone and get knocked up within the next three weeks and hope that kid’s on time or she’s just going to have to wait another year for that good old tax credit.
    Now if she wants to have a baby on her own and care for it on her own – why doesn’t she just go out and have nameless, unprotected sex. Sure, she could catch something – but she doesn’t seem to be worried about that too much anyway.

    I love how this guy makes it sound like no single person has ever wanted a child before. I honestly don’t think adoption or a surrogate mother agency ever entered his mind.

    Oh, lol, that’s what I get for not reading everything – I assumed it was a woman. D’oh. I got so little sleep last night, it’s a wonder I’m walking upright. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

    Why yes, Random Dude. I would love to get stretch marks, hemorrhoids, stress incontinence, diabetes, sagging boobs, and perineal tears, not to mention a 1 in 4800 chance of death, so that you can have a tax break. Sounds like a great deal!

    Why do I think his perfect mate would be Octo-mom?

    I just want to know where the other two fingers went? who was doing what to the child dummy/mannequin at the time? and why? did they get arrested? was it a prank? …as for a child for a tax dodge – certainly doesn’t work here in the UK … they just cost the earth and stay for ever ! LOL
