Oops. My apologies, I promised too much. I made that sign as a joke for a web board and it seems I never kept a high-res version, just the one posted above. Embarassed

Uh, did you guys see the picture of the kid? I mean, if you need any indication of the parenting going on here, let's talk, 14 and over 300lbs, and home schooled. I'm thinking the values may be, uh, skewed. (You're with the kid all day, how about, at some point, suggesting he put the Cheetos down and back the fuck away?)

I gotta say something about this. The kids overweight and thats an indicator of *values*? Not genetics maybe?
These parents as I have said before obviously are not what I would call good parents but c'mon. The kid being a moose is *not* an indicator of parenting! Or values! He's fat. Thats all. My daughters overweight, in pre-med, getting good grades, and eats better than I do and exercises. I get so sick of the prejudice against anyone fat.
If you are fat, you eat cheetos all day, sit on the couch and have no values, judgement, or worth. Riiiiight.

Come to think of it, I eat cheetos all day, usually have my nose in a book, and am a twig. Go me! I mean if you can get away with it....*snicker* Now, you all stay away from my cheetos! Mine! Mine!


The kid is not just overweight, the kid is morbidly obese. He has a roll of fat the size of a small child. I'm just saying, there's a lot of bad shit going on here. And if it's genetics, if mom was that fat at 14, then she needs to keep her fucking genes out of the pool. Bringing a child into the world to face that kind of suffering is cruel, which also means "bad parenting". Or, it might be that the kid just needs to back away from the fucking cheetos.

What have the Cheetos ever done but bring crispy, crunchy goodness to this dreary world of ours? Now look at them, caught in the midst of a scandal. They're like the bastard cousins of cheesy goldfish crackers Very Happy

It's all good, Lep. Just using Cheetos as an example. You can still hang out with your crunch cheesy pals and no one will think the worse of you. Just don't get orange cheeto spoor all over the guns. I HATE THAT!

Maybe it wasn't cheetos that made the kid so horizontally challenged -- it could have been TWINKIES!!!!! (Or, even better, twinkies covered with Cheeze Whiz.)

Hence, another defense strategy to use in court:

"Guns don't kill people; twinkies do."

Leprrka: should read something like:

"You'll get my Cheetos when you pry them from my orange, dead fingers!"

Lep, how old were you when you took BRM Lab?
Eddie Eagle is for children, not recruits.


Most parents who would go to the trouble of enrolling their children
in a gun safety course, have a pretty good idea of where their children are
emotionally and mentally.
Obviously this woman was aware of neither of her child.
I might play devils advocate, in saying PLANNING something and DOING it
are mutually exclusive.
Some days I PLAN to go to work, then the dog looks at me that way
and we spend the day running through the woods. Work never happened.
Some days I plan to go out and hunt, then a customer calls and I gotta go
repair the mainline water to their house. Hunt never happened.
Erring on the side of caution is fine with me.
To have taken the story to the media frenzy it had become, makes me ill.
Take them aside, take away all the guns play and real, take away their
individual rights to own or buy firearms, let them know they are now,
and until further notice, under the closest of scrutiny.
Allow them to go their way, forever looking over their collective shoulders.
And DO keep an eye on them.

I've listened to Eminem and 50 cent also, and it made me want to kill somebody.
Emninem and 50 cent respectively. Razz Laughing

That's what happens when I'm forced to listen to whiny chick singers, or Rush Limbaugh, or...

Question
Think we might have a new Twinkie defense for temporary insanity?

FC-
I know Eddie Eagle is geared toward kids and BRM is obviously not, I just don't like that they use a cartoon to teach something that is a fairly serious subject. I don't know what a better method might be, but if it was my kid, I'd prefer a scaled-down version of what the Army offered over the NRA (and, again, I'll admit flat out that I just don't like the NRA in general, so my opinion is biased). I also know, though, that all the gun safety training in the world is not going to make a bit of difference to someone who is bound and determined to wreak havoc. I'm not against gun ownership, whether for hunting, target shooting, or personal safety. I live in a state where the first day of buck is a school holiday (even in the Catholic schools), so I've been exposed to guns all my life.

I agree to a point that most parents are aware of what their kids are doing, but I think there is a shift away from that. Also, I think that there are limits to how much a parent knows. I'm not a parent but I coach youth sports, and this past summer I had a soccer team of 15/16 year old girls who routinely talked about who they had fucked, the drugs and drinking they had been doing over the weekend and all other kinds of things that I'm fairly certain mom and dad had no clue about. I know that most kids go through that phase of experimenting and seeing what they can get away with when they're away from adult supervision (I don't count as adult supervision, believe me), and I know I did some of the same at that age, so there are some things that you may suspect that your kid is up to, but you may not be able to know for sure. I think that in this particular case, though, that the mom dropped the ball.

If you're gonna shot Fiddy and Em, can you hit Kanye too Very Happy
