Cheesy selfish couple start website to beg for money from strangers......

Note that they haven't sacrificed for their 'dream'. They just bought their second home.

No. They could have put the money that went towards their second home, which they "have no idea what to do with it", towards the baby.

That, and they used the word "preggers", which I despise.

Preggers is a dumbass word. If your going to come up with an abbreviation for something at least make sure that it's shorter than the original word.

Why didn't they start a website asking people to help them purchase a second home?

Actually, I have far more modest goals. If I can only get 3,000 people to donate one dollar each to www.buymyplasmatv.com... my dreams can finally come true.

Damn. As someone who has gone through this journey, I can definitively say that begging for money is going a bit too far.

But sure enough, they say they get to be on TV because of this (CBS early morning edition.)

Gotta come up with some way to promote our books. Can everyone donate a dollar to my book publishing business? We haven't had kids! Help us out!
