Yep people, just when you think folks can’t get any stranger, here comes the next n****. You read right, a woman gave away a pair of her kids in exchange for a bird. A cockatoo, if that makes you feel any better.
Now, I don’t like no screaming kids just as much as you do:
Ain’t nooooobody tryna hear to that. But damn. Even I find that to be in bad taste.
Apparently Paul & Brandy Romero of Louisiana advertised that they wanted to sell their bird for $1,500. A response from Donna Greenwell came in, saying she’d be willing to take the cockatoo off of their hands, but because she was strapped for cash, she’d give them the 2 kids instead. Greenwell origionally put it out there that she’d sell the children for $2,000 cuz she was strapped for cash while caring for 3 kids.
But here’s the best part.
The 2 kids she was trying to sell ain’t even hers!
Turns out Greenwell had the 4 and 5 year old in her care while the biological parents were going through a divorce.
So the Romeros and Greenwell put their heads together (pause) and came up with a solution that would satiate both sides of this backwards equation:
Donna bartered the children to Paul & Brandy, and recieved the cockatoo and $175 for her trouble.
Each one of their asses were arressted and charged with aggravated kidnapping. While the 3 little ones were placed in foster care.
I mean why would you do that?
@ least be on the come-up from the deal- but $175 & a bird? She basically got:
a colt 45
a pigeon in return for two people.
I just can’t.
