A bunch of people have sent me this story about a man who allegedly arranged to sell his 14-year-old daughter to another man for "$16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat." The horrific twist is:
Police said they only learned of the deal after the 36-year-old man went to them to get his daughter back because payment wasn't made as promised.
Father of the Year has been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking and the man to which he sold his daughter has been arrested on suspicion of statutory rape.

And, yes, Yahoo naturally filed this story under Odd News.
