>Parents for Sale

>An item for sale on Craigslist:

Michael Amatrudo, a 51-year-old Madison resident and insurance executive, says in the ad that he’s gotten “lots of use out of these guys over the past 50 years, but it’s time to move on.” He says he’ll take $155 or a trade for a younger set of parents, an Erector set or a “hot blonde.”

I wonder if this is a violation of the 5th Commandment: “Honor your father and your mother” (Exodus 20:12).
