Abby Sunderland’s family got a bill from the Australians for $300,000 to rescue her.
Mommy Sunderland says they won’t pay because they are not rich.
But she sure would like you and I to pay the Australians.
“The full cost of chartering an Airbus would be so high, you’d think they (Australian rescue authorities) would have to work with the US government for that,” she tells a newspaper.
The practically destitute Sunderlands have forgotten about the deal they signed months ago for a reality Tee Vee deal.
Adventures in Sunderland will feature daddy Laurence, mommy Maryanne, and their seven wild and crazy kids.
The large family has long been a curiosity in the community, neighbors said. All seven children are home-schooled.
“They rarely leave their house, and they rarely talk to neighbors,”
local resident Brian Gonzales said.
Abby will be home soon to start her new adventure tour of all the talkers, and then will set out around the world again in her tiny boat.
I truly wish this was a joke.
