Hey Kid, Major League Baseball Called... They Want to Give You a Job

"I'll take 'God Fucking Help Our Country' for a thousand Alex."

"Okay, the answer is 'Lie, cheat, and kill my father in Iraq.'"

"Uh... What is 'How far will a six-year-old girl go for Hannah Montana tickets?'"

"Yes!"

Anyone else smell another revival of Kids Say the Darndest Things?

The sad thing is, I heard about this before it became national, because this poor kid and her disgusting mom are from my home state of Texas. I feel like the Dixie Chicks; we are ashamed that this conniving cow and her six-year-old patsy are from our state!

I'd love (love) to be able to say that I am shocked and amazed by this.

But sadly, I'm not.

With her mother's guidance, this young lady has a brilliant future ahead of her. I wonder if the mother can write a forward for Lynn Spears' guide to parenting.

from texas? not florida? you sure?

Not the girl, but the mother. Her mother had the idea. Betcha dad had full knowledge and probably said they should do it.

The article doesn't say whether dad is actually in Iraq. Would it change the equation if he really was there?

Maybe then 2 parents helping their 6-year old tell such a horrible lie isn't as black-and-white easy to condemn.

From the MSNBC website:

"My daddy died this year in Iraq," the little girl wrote in the essay. "I am going to give mommy the Angel pendant that daddy put on mommy when she was having me. I had it in my jewelry box since that day. I love my mommy."

Ceballos told contest organizers her husband was killed April 17, 2007, while serving in Iraq.

Research revealed that only one U.S. soldier died on April 17 of this year, and it was not Jonathan Menjivar. Neighbors said the girl's father, a carpet cleaner, is alive and is not a soldier.


So yeah, it was all the mother. Seriously, can we kill her? Please -- before this stupid bitch breeds again and infects the world with more badly-reared spawn?

Dear Summer Glau and Morena Baccarin,

Hello, my name is Vermillion and I am 25 years old. My daddy died in Iraq this year. He gave my mother a pretty pendant that I keep always. Please have a threesome with me, preferably while dressed as River and Inara. It will most definitely make me feel better.

Sincerely,

Vermillion

P.S. If Gina Torres would like to join, that would be great as well.

You, sir, have an unhealthy obsession.
