I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     4Chan helps a mom teach her daughter a valuable Internet lesson.

I’ll go ahead and  preface this by saying 4chan is one of the most vile corners of the Internet and I never go over there.  As those creeps are wont to do, the folks over there took a mother’s picture of her daughter and tried to shame Mom for her parenting tactics.  If I was that mom, I’d write them a big fat thank-you for really showing her daughter what the Internet can be like.

     I’m still going to spank my kids.

Jezebel has an article today about spanking which basically says if you spank your child, you’re an asshole; if your parents spanked you, they’re assholes; and if you were spanked and don’t believe it was the worst thing in the world, you’re an asshole who is also a damaged person who probably needs therapy.

But it’s Jezebel so……..::shrug::

Last year, I wrote about spanking kind of at random because a video was making the rounds of a father beating his daughters after he discovered they’d made a twerking video.  I just wanna put a different face on spanking real quick because the tone of the White Affluenza Population when they talk about spanking is really hysterical and needs to be taken down a notch.

     Would you let your 13-year-old get plastic surgery?

Now that I’ve written out the title though, it should be more like would you pay for your kid’s plastic surgery considering those procedures aren’t cheap and some newspaper route is not going to cover it.


Upworthy has a video going around about a 13-year-old girl who gets a nose job to put an end to bullying.  Her classmates tease her about her nose so her parents paid for her nose job.

Who wants to bet that she’s most certainly still being bullied, probably to a greater degree than before?

Dear parents, you need to control your kids. Sincerely, non-parents

I love kids about 90% of the time, but that 10% where they are screaming in a store or restaurant or enclosed subway car (aka the metallic capsule of sonic magnification) I am not on Team Children anymore.  Still, until you HAVE a child, you can keep your comments about toddler tantrums to yourself.

Unless you’re this guy who gets it just right.

     Some lady in South Dakota went to jail for breastfeeding somebody else’s baby.

From the Huffington Post:

…A mom was startled to find a woman she didn’t know breastfeeding her child in her Brookings bedroom on Sunday, radio station KJJQ reported.

The mom called 911 after she allegedly found the intruder around 5 a.m. feeding her two-month-old infant, according to the Associated Press.

The mother got her baby back from the rogue lactating lady, but the suspect stayed in the house and lay on the resident’s bed until police arrived to arrest her.

Brookings police department officials didn’t return calls from The Huffington Post, but news reports said the 24-year-old suspect was charged with unlawful occupancy.

Neither the suspect nor victim was identified.

….”suspect was charged with unlawful occupancy.”

Where is the rest of that sentence?  Unlawful occupancy of a strange baby’s mouth by your tiddie?  Y’all, that is crazy.  She was probably on meth.  You know how those super-rural areas are.  Nothing to do?  Let’s make some meth from stuff we got at Wal-Mart.

I told y’all about those states with right angles….don’t go there.  That is an extra level of insane normal folks shouldn’t be dealing with.

     When protocol trumps good sense.

If you are really about to put handcuffs on a six-year-old girl, you need to take a minute and ask “Is this the very best reaction to the situation or am I just following protocol?”

If you are really about to arrest a pregnant mother and take her toddler away from her because she bought $50 worth of groceries but forgot to pay for the sandwich she was snacking on, you need to take a minute.

If you are really about to arrest a mother of three because her children were less than ten minutes late to school a few times, you need to take a minute.

And if you still feel like you’re making the right decision, take another minute and ask someone else.

     My old boss took me to lunch today.

Once up on a time, when I was a sophomore, I got a job working at Bath & Body Works.  Because I’d never had a job.  And the only thing I was qualified to do was rub lotion on people’s hands.

Fast forward eight thousand years, I’m living in NYC, and one of my old bosses hits me on Facebook like “Oh hey, I’m gonna be up there.  Let’s meet up.  My husband and I will take you to lunch.”
