Filed under: WTF?

A certain Angry Med Student from across the Pond has said that I spend way too much time on MSNBC. He's right.

That being said, today I found this article about the latest candidate for "Worst Mother in the World".

Now, I was horrified by the fact that this poor kid weighs less than half what the average weight for his age is. I was very bothered by the fact that he was filthy and nasty. But this was the most disturbing part of the story:

"The woman has nine children ranging in age from 2 to 23 and is pregnant."

There are some people that sterilization should just be mandatory for.

I completely agree with the sterilization statement....just because you "can" breed, doesn't mean you should....

All those people screwing each other on Grey's Anatomy are doctors?

Wouldn't know. I've never watched it. Soap operas aren't allowed on my TV. (Hence the un-inclusion of House in my Tivo lineup.)

Everyone else at work loves it, but they all watch American Idol and Survivor, too, so we know that means their opinions can't be trusted.

Whoa. For some reason when I read that last line, I thought of Chinese authorities bursting into homes of families with more than one child and forcefully injecting them with Steriline(TM) or some other Orwellian substance. Well at least over there they don't get crap like this happening.

And you..you don't watch House or G's A?

You're not human!

I can top this one. Where I live, we had a "mother"(if you can call her that) arrested, because her 12 year old daughter only weighted 33 lbs. This poor child has Cerebral Palsy, and obviously can't feed herself. Well, this "mom" said that she put the food in front of her daughter, so it's pretty much not her fault that her daughter is so emaciated. After all, she gave her food, but her daughter just didn't eat it. Nevermind the fact that she CAN'T!! Oh yeah, "mom" had to have weighed at least 300 lbs. I guess she didn't have a problem lifting the food to her mouth. It's no wonder her daughter was starving to death. "Mom" couldn't be bothered to take time away from stuffing her mouth full of food to take the time to feed her disabled daughter.

you ended your post with a preposition. it doesn't bother me but i'm sure there are many people angry about it. however, as winston churchill said about this particular grammatical rule, it is something "up with which i can not put".
