More Parents Like This

A couple in Houston got their three boys each a Nintendo DS system for Christmas. But the boys, 9, 11, and 15, were acting like beasts. The parents threatened that they'd get rid of the gifts. The 15-year-old dared them to do it.

So the dad listed them on Ebay.

And GoldenPalace.com (who's taken to buying bizarre things on Ebay like Virgin Mary grilled-cheese sandwiches) bought them for $5,300 and is giving them to poor kids - and the dad is donating the proceeds to his church.

Good story. Serves the brats right, and yay for GoldenPalace.com, who stipulated that the money would have to go to charity.
