    A dad takes away a Christmas gift for......

    I love this story. Don't know why.

    I'm sure that after my dad got done "straightening" me out, he probably would have done the same thing. Can't say that I blame him.

    Dad sells son's 90-dollar video game online for more than 9000 - Yahoo! News


    Yes, 22, all I do is look for headlines to post.

    I just read that and its a hit in the office. The Dad probably planted the pot to turn a profit once he realized what the game was worth

    You know, that's not a bad idea.

    Sounds like my neighbor kids...they used to smoke pot in their backyard then they got busted by the cops. After that they thought they'd be real smart and go in the garage and close the door. Gee I wonder what they are doing in a closed garage.

    Good for Dad lay the smack down on your children.

    I sure hope he buys the kid a Barbie game, then gloats in his face with the $9000 he got. That would be funny. Something I would like to watch on youtube.

    Guitar Hero must be hard to come by down under, I can't imagine anyone spending $9000 for any game, let alone that one.

    I am also confused as to why a game drew that much cash.

    I wonder if it was a "Parents of the world UNITE!" type of thing. Maybe one parent was saying "Good for you." Just a thought.

    I know in some instances the seller describes why he is selling - perhaps the Aussie buyer misunderstood and thought the game came with the pot


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
