  • Flavored Pencils Aimed At People Who Chew Erasers (FAKE)
  • New York Couple Is Now Raising Plastic Doll As Baby  (REAL)

Families come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in plastic. A New York couple,  AJ Sapolnick  and  Mark Kirby,  decided it was time to have a child. Only their child is a plastic doll named  Digby Du Pont. The retired teacher, Sapolnick and his husband, former dentist Mark Kirby decided to have a baby “that wouldn’t impede our lifestyle.” They have been caring for their child since 1990 and celebrated many of Digby's milestones such as a birthday celebration at the ‘21’ Club and a bar mitzvah at a fancy New York restaurant. Their son also gets spoiled with gifts such as Cartier and Rolex watches, trips around the world and dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants. They consider Digby to be a bit entitled but are happy they haven't had to deal with any sort of teen rebellion.
