Mom Tries to Sell Kids on Facebook

Everyone uses Facebook to brag about their kids -- but one messed-up mom tried to use the social media site to sell hers. According to Mashable, Oklahoma mom Misty VanHorn put her 10-month-old on the virtual block for a thousand bucks and her 2-year-old for four grand. Even more ludicrous, she offered the two children for a combo deal of $4,000 ("buy a toddler get a free baby!"). In an ironic and extremely sad twist, police suspect she needed the money to bail her boyfriend out of jail. VanHorn is being held on $40,000 bond, the kids are in protective custody and Craigslist is confused as to why she didn't think of their site first.
