Serial Numbers Generated By Computer

SAN DIEGO -- Christmas Day brought an unwelcome gift for an Augusta, Ga., girl.
Diamond Robinson, 9, received a Cabbage Patch doll from her parents.
The doll comes with adoption paperwork, but in Diamond's case, the serial number was obscene.
Her parents are angry that their daughter had to wake up to profanity on the special day.
"She was like, 'Dad, you need to see this.' She showed it to my wife and my wife called me and they showed it to me and I couldn't believe it," said Lucius Robinson, Diamond's dad.
The Play-Along Company makes Cabbage Patch Dolls and said the serial number was generated by computer and was not deliberate.
Two million of the dolls are sold in the United States every year.
