There's a hooker in Florida who sees long-term value in the hottest trend of 1996. 51-year-old Karen Robinson from St. Petersburg, Florida approached a man in a car last Wednesday night and offered him a hell of a deal.

She said she'd perform sexual favors on him in exchange for $5 and a Beanie Baby.

It's not clear if she just expected the guy to have the Beanie Baby on him, or if she wanted him to go out and buy it and then come back. But it didn't really matter, because he was an undercover cop.

Karen was arrested for prostitution.
