Confusing her gestating fetus with a sports stadium, a woman in Arkansas is auctioning off the naming rights to her unborn son on eBay, starting at $150.
Lavonne Drummond, an unemployed mother of six, is hoping to garner $25,000 or more by offering the opportunity to name her seventh child, a boy due on Sept. 16, to the highest bidder.
"The economy is so bad and there's no jobs out here that will support a family of my size," Drummond said. "It sounds really crazy but I thought maybe there's someone out there who could help me out with a good name. I'm running out of good names."
Drummond's family has thus far not embraced the decision, and her husband, a Navy man stationed in Virginia, isn't even aware of the online auction yet. "He'll probably support me 100 percent on whatever I feel is best for my family," she said. Probably.
