What Would You Do If Your Parents Were Like The Hong Kong Tycoon?

Yesterday, a lot of you chimed in on our story about the Hong Kong tycoon who is offering a $65 million "reward" to any man who would marry his already happily married lesbian daughter.

Like many of you, when we first caught wind of this story, we winced a little, thought up a few vindictive responses to his proposal, then felt bad and moved on. We thought we were the only ones who responded that way, until a few of you came to our comments section and suggested the same exact thing we were thinking. Reader Conga said it best:

Call us what you will, but this option definitely crossed our minds. We're glad we weren't alone.

See? That's you and us, thinking of shady things together... only without the cliff and the police...

Anyway, this raises a great question: What would you do if your incredibly rich parent decided to basically put a bounty on your love life? Would you cook up some kind of scam, take the money and run? Would you laugh the whole thing off? Would you defend your parent?

Let us know in the comments what you would do, we'd love to hear it.

Important note: Please know, we'd never in a million (or should we say 65 million) years suggest that lovely Gigi should actually steal from her dad. In fact, we're not endorsing the idea that any LGBT kids should steal from their mean non-accepting parents. So, don't go poking around your parents' bank accounts and then blame us.
