A friend showed me a wonderful, terrible prank site, MarryOurDaughter.com. On it teenage girls are offered for sale by their parents for brideprices ranging from a few thousand dollars to just under $100,000. The higher priced ones seem to be blondes who want to be good Christian wives and mothers. The cheap ones "wrestle with unchristian urges."
The thing is probably meant as a dig at Christians as well as "inconsistent marriage laws" (this according to Snopes.com).
Nonetheless, as an artifact of relative values, or what are thought to be relative values, it is pretty intriguing.
