Suppose you were kidnapped when you were a kid; could you been so obnoxious that kidnappers be glad to pay your parents to take you back?

Parents might ask for a new house and cash?

    Yes, I read O Henry’s “The Ransom of Red Chief” too. 
    I would have employed that strategy to the letter.

    Right. I remember the story from school,  forgot who was the author. Good story.

    Kids that are kidnapped are always obnoxious to the kidnapper.  They are chattel and have minutes to live as a rule and are raped repeatedly and then slaughtered.

    I just can't get it up for this joke. Sorry.  

    It's too raw an issue for me.

    There are lots of quite obnoxious kids about these days it seems.. but no, the parent's still adore them.  As Sharon said, there are some horrendous stories about kids being kidnapped and kept slaves for decades.
