Just a little WTF moment

I just read a news article with the title "Duct tape no substitute for a babysitter, police say"

The sheer stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me.

Hasn't this woman ever heard of chloroform?

13 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

I was just telling Bloggy yesterday that I was not going to read my local news anymore and sent him a list of the morning headlines... this one (headline) came in the evening edition... I didn't look at them today.

Stupid people I understand, including me who placed a Dr. Pepper next to my computer so my cat could knock it over and force me to spend a fortune on repairs.

Whatever happened to bubble wrap?
Get a roll of it, and you'll have relatives coming out of the woodwork to stay at your place to pop the little bubbles while your kids have two babysitters for the day: the adult and the bubble-wrap.
Just to be safe, invest in a couple yards of the stuff.

/Love teh bubble wrap :oP

I heard that on the radio yesterday and did a WTF, too. :)

Chloroform? Now I know why you didn't babysit.

I prefer wolves. They raise children suprisingly well, as long as you don't mind the kids using their own urine to mark their turf.

Just a small dosing of Benadryl - no side effects & good nap time for the kiddoes.

I always like the people who leave newborns in the car at the casino. Hi! Got a problem maybe?
