Most of you will find this sad,
The rest will laugh their asses off like I did.


MONTREAL- After catching his 15-year-old smoking pot, a father sold the hard-to-get "Guitar Hero III" video game he bought his son for 90 dollars for Christmas at an online auction, fetching 9,000 dollars.

The sale took place after the father spent two weeks searching for the video game for the Nintendo Wii gameboard.

"So I was so relieved in that I had finally got the Holy Grail of Christmas presents pretty much just in the nick of time. I couldn't wait to spread the jubilance to my son," the father wrote on the eBay website.

"Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what do I find? My innocent little boy smoking pot in the back yard with two of his delinquent friends."

The man, a school teacher, who kept his identity private, said he sold the coveted video game to punish his son and discourage him from smoking dope.

The sale was a boon for the family's bank account, since the game the father purchased for 90 dollars (US) was finally sold to an Australian who plunked down 9,100 dollars for it.

The naughty son, however, will not go without a present on Christmas..

"I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo. Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing with the Stars ... I know he will just love them," the father said, tongue-in-cheek.

actually, i laughed as well... is this true? and no way, it's in montreal? O_o
i live in montreal.

Though it's a pretty good punishment It was pretty smart of the dad to do something like that, other parents (mine) would have dismembered him and then thrown him on the streets.

Good man. Nice and tough. That is the kind of discipline we need in society, not this candy-assed shit with counselors, therapists, feelings and acceptance.

It's not hard to understand. Family had "Guitar Hero III", the game is hard to get! Dad walks home, finds child smoking pot(weed, marijuana). Dad sells game online for 9,100. Dad is going to give child present for Christmas. Dad is going to give games like Barbie and Dancing with the Stars.

Oh nvm, after going through this.. it was so hard to understand. Awesome dad btw!

imo, I think the kid got off easy...then again, the father probably decided what he thought was best, as any parent would do. Mine would have been more severe, due to the fact that I've lost friends as well as family to drug abuse and other related crimes because of drug use...
