Of course it’s only February and we have more than ten months of stupidity to wade through. But an early leader has emerged in the battle for Worst Adult of the Year 2010.

A woman in Louisiana was sentenced Monday to 15 months hard labor for selling two children for a bird and $175.

I guess she couldn’t quite talk them all the way to $200.

Donna Louise Greenwell, 52, traded a 5-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl to Paul and Brandy Romero for a cockatoo and $175. Now before you get your drawers in a bunch, know that cockatoos go for anywhere from $2,000-$5,000, according to my friend Gary Bogue. And, really, we don’t know anything about those kids …

Please step away from the phone and refrain from calling CPS. I joke because I care … about cockatoos. And children.

These kids are going to be scarred for life. Sounds like they already were – they were left in this wonderful woman’s care by their biological parents. No word on whether that was supposed to be a permanant deal.

And we worry about the children of Haiti …
