(Title Stolen from RodinVSRodan@aol.com)

Los Angeles -- Writer Steve Young received more than 10,000 hits on eBay within minutes after he posted an ad auctioning off his wife and two children.

But the broken nose and six cracked ribs didn't prove to be all that serious. (mhford@cox-internet.com)

10,000 hits... zero bids. Turns out wives and kids really aren't that popular. (alextreme@aol.com)

NYCM picker, this time you've gone too far...auctioning off your own family JUST to have a topic...shame on you! (CaptainCrazee@aol.com)

...Well, if you guys would get off your butts and do something newsworthily funny (or maybe talk cad into a bigger raise). Speaking of which....

Well, if I knew all I had to do was to auction my family off on eBay to gain notoriety as a "writer", I would have done so YEARS ago! (Cadeaux@aol.com)

The 10,000 hits were all from his kids going, "Sheesh Dad, NOW will you go to Alcoholics Anonymous??" (Dominus@earthlink.net)

But since he listed them as "one bitch and 2 offspring," they were all from dog breeders. (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

Uh oh, a new sitcom on ABC..."My Wife and Bids" (ShowMeTheMoney@aol.com)

9,000 of them were from Frank Gifford wanting to know if he'd like to just trade. (SpinyNorma@aol.com)

You didn't mention that he had to throw in the Porsche when his first ad got zero hits. (NITRAMXXX@AOL.COM)

I guess in economic times like these, it is better to buy used. (y2patton@yahoo.com)

Today's winner, Baitsmotel6@aol.com, wonders what kind of scam old Steve is running, to be so willing to dump his three biggest tax deductions:

Now that's what I call, Sell-a-butt! (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)
