Give me $50,000 or I abort my baby!

Wow...this website is...uh, rather bold:


http://helpmybabylive.com/

It comes down to this. If we can't raise the $50,000 in the next 3 months, we'll have to choose abortion. We don't like it, and we don't like the nature of our appeal, but it is what it is. We're asking you to donate money to us using the link to your left. Anything you can give would be appreciated.

A new nadir for American culture, or the wave of the future? Begging for money use to be so passé and street corner; but now it’s gotten all high-tech and tres chic -- this fall, begging is the new black.

I actually think this helpmybabylive.com website is a good thing, it’ll help get a lot of stupid money out of circulation. Money that might’ve otherwise bought a snowmobile or jetski and gotten someone hurt. Hats off to you, anonymous pregnant couple!

So that's why I've put together my own plea...



It comes down to this. I’ve got a lot of viable sperm, but I can’t raise them all without your help. I don’t like it, but I have to ask the Internet to give me $5 each. Otherwise, I’ll be forced to flush them down the toilet -- even though I respect life and stuff. I’m dead serious about this threat. Especially since Desperate Housewives is almost on. Please hurry!

wow...i don't know how i feel.
part of me hopes that people aren't dumb enough to fall for this...
then again, taking money from stupid people is not bad...
but giving money to bad people is bad...
and really, you have to be a crook to pull something like that.

Whether it's real or a scam, it's pretty messed up either way. Although I'm about 60% sure it's a pure scam with no pregnant couple, just an immoral teenager with a computer and a dream.


I'm guessing it'll be explained away on the urban legend debunking website in a few days (http://www.snopes.com/info/whatsnew.asp)
