Rent My Son
For all those occasions when a kid would come in handy (I can't think of any), RentMySon.com offers the solution. Just call them up and they'll send a kid over. They rent out kids for proms, birthday parties, father/son events, etc. And if you'd like to make a little bit of extra money by hiring out your kid, they'll arrange that too. (Yes, the site is a hoax).

Probably useful if you go places where discounts are offered to family units of two adults & two children.

Although (thinking about it), it might be just as expensive to hire extra kid(s) than to pay full price in the first place!

No "Rent My Daughter"? Non PC, to be sure, but equal access under the law. "How much? How much for the women? How much for the little girl?" Jake Blues, Blues Bros. film (my favorite)

They stole my business plan. I saw combining a babysitting service with a meet women service, charging both sides. The parents pay to get someone to watch the baby. The babysitter pays to get a baby to take out into the public as a babe magnetic. Charge each $5 /hour. (Women always come up to men holding a baby):}

It depends how cute the baby is. You can pretend to be nice for so long.

Rent a son might be useful if you're Michael Jackson

Doesn't he have enough fun with the son he already has?

That poor poor child is going to grow up with SUCH a complex.

OK, nettie, I give up:
What kind of complex could be worse than the reality of being Michael Jackson's son?
Anyway, doesn't he have two sons? I seem to recall that he named them Prince Michael and Prince Michael II. I don't remember which one he likes to dangle over balcony railings.

Prince Michael and Blanket. BLANKET! First of all, why the hell do you name your child Blanket? And then, how the hell do you forget that one of the creepiest men to ever prey on small children named his own Blanket? Then you have Gwyneth's baby Apple, and that's all I can come up with without getting into my black friends' babie's names. I'm going to be famous one day and name my baby the first thing I see, like, doorknob, or lanyard.

How do you know it's a hoax and not a pedophelia operation or some reality show?

What kind of women are attracted to men with babies? A dog would do the trick better than some smelly baby.

Plus, it's even more useful against a hoax.

Woo. Genius.

The movie "godsend" used this tactic as viral marketing.

The wesbite called "the godsend institute" has a small disclaimer at the bottom, assuming you notice it. And yet the same people started their petition again the godsend institute....which didn't exist.
