Parents of the Year
A California couple will face charges of child endangerment after they attempted to sell their baby for $25 at Wal-Mart. The couple allegedly approached two women at the Wal-Mart and asked if they would like to purchase the child. The women told police they thought the mother was joking but realized she was serious when she became insistent. The women reported the incident to the police. The couple ran off but police were able to track them down at their home later that evening. The couple was high of meth, and the house was disgusting, according to reports. The mother admitted that she breast fed the baby while under the influence of drugs.
That’s all they asked for $25? They must have been truly messed up. You know the going rate for a baby is at least a G and a box of animal crackers. Seriously, all jokes aside, I will once again point out that anybody is allowed to have a baby. The only time you get your kids taken away is AFTER you’ve already abused them. And then just because you get that kid taken away don’t mean that you can’t have another one, and they won’t take the new one away until you mess that one up too. What kind of world do we live in?
Getting Away From It All
A Florida man has been rescued by the Coast Guard after he floated almost a mile away from the coastline on a pool float. The man was very drunk and unconscious when rescue workers found him. Apparently, he’d been lounging on the beach on a pool float when the tide picked him up and carried him out to sea. Coast Guard officials say that the man is lucky because if the tides and current had been slightly different, no one would have ever seen him again.
How do we know the man wasn’t trying to emigrate out the country? Every year, thousands of people risk their lives floating here from everywhere. How do we know he wasn’t trying to float out of here?
Must Be Crazy
A woman in Utah is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation after she stole two cars and led police on a wild goose chase while completely naked. The woman was already naked when she was caught driving her own car erratically. When police stopped her, she jumped out of her car and into someone else’s car and drove off. The woman wrecked the car, jumped out and ran through sagebrush, a very prickly, scratchy bush. Police called for backup and when they arrived, the woman charged at them and jumped into a police cruiser. She rammed the police car into a gate and kept driving, until she was in yet another accident. She was supposed to make a left turn and instead, went sailing off an exit ramp. The car landed so hard that the body’s frame was bent. The police ended up having to Taser the woman while she attempted to scale a chain-link fence. Police say she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and did not appear to be involved with any crime at the time.
I don’t have to give this woman a psych eval to tell you she’s crazy. First of all, she was butt ass nekkid in her car, then she stole someone else’s car, ran through some bushes and jacked a police car and then tried to climb over a chain link fence. Just the fact that she managed to get into TWO accidents in one day and was not even slightly injured tells you that she is either an alien from another planet or she’s crazy. Crazy people somehow never manage to get injured doing things that other people will.
Not the Kids This Time
Two adult women have been arrested following a brawl that broke out at a kindergarten graduation in California. The fight involved 20 other adults. The school is now on lockdown after several mothers got into an argument near the graduation ceremony. When men jumped into the fight, it soon turned into a brawl. At this time, authorities do not know what started the fight, but more arrests are coming. No injuries were reported.
Apparently, they were fighting over whose kid is the coolest. I wonder what the kids thought of this whole incident. You’re five years old at your kindergarten graduation and your mommy gets arrested. Great way to start off your education, kid. I wonder how she’ll act at your high school graduation. Probably set the place on fire.
One For the Road
A New Zealand man decided he might as well have another beer while he waited for authorities to come rescue him after he wrecked his car in a drunk driving accident. The man was already over the limit when he overturned his car and crashed through a wooden barrier. When he realized that the doors had bent shut and he could not open them, he called emergency services on his cell phone and opened another can of beer. Rescue workers found him relaxing inside the car with his beer. He told authorities that he went on a drinking binge because he’d just been fired from his job and then he found out that his father was diagnoses with prostate cancer. The man has pled guilty to careless driving and drunk driving charges.
I guess it’s in for a penny, in for a pound, as they say. He was like, “F— it. I’m already drunk, what’s one more beer gonna do?”
Fame will go by and, so long, I’ve had you, Fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle. So at least it’s something I experience, but that’s not where I live. –Marilyn Monroe
