If you're on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or any other site that supports photo sharing, you know that parents and grandparents love to post pictures of their kids. In fact, you might post pictures of your kids on those or other social networks.

When you posted that picture online, however, the last thing you were thinking was that your kid or grandkid's picture might show up on a mug for a stranger to buy. But that's exactly what's happening in one online store.

The store is called Koppie Koppie and its slogan is "Someone's kid on your favorite mug." The really crazy part: it's perfectly legal.

Legality aside, if that still sounds like a serious invasion of privacy, then the people who created the store have succeeded in their goal. Confused yet?
