The Horror! The Horror!

April 30th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  3 Comments

Some things you can’t unread. Like this Gawker story, which may be true or not true, and about which I don’t want to reveal any details. Except that it involves some very, very bad parenting indeed—the kind of stuff that normally might make our Bad Dads We Love category, except that there’s nothing whatsoever to love here.

All I will tell you is that it involves the state of Indiana. And, for some reason we can’t quite fathom, Australia. Also, it will likely satisfy some of the people who find this site via very strange search terms.

So, feel free to click through. But don’t come crying to me, tearing out your hair, kvetching that I should have warned you. Because I did.

    There is NO. F-ING. WAY. that can possibly be a true story. (Please, please, please don’t let that be a true story….)

    Jill, I hope you’re right!

    I need a drink now, make that a drink, a bath and a hammer. Yikes.
