*“Let me kill this baby … You are a bad motherf*cker. That’s why you always have to get in jail,” can you believe that these are the words coming from the mouth of a six-year-old who’s elder is videotaping her? It all began when the woman behind the camera asked the little girl to “show us how you play with your doll.”
That’s when the tirade began.
I’m sure Black folk all over the world are jumping for joy that its not one of ours.Continue reading →
*I suppose one way to wrap your brain around the realization that you have produced three sets of twins in a little over two years and your future for the next 18 will be centered around taking care of ‘dem babies is being grateful that you can produce children at all.
After all, as Danesha Couch, a 20-year-old mother of five, knows so well, there are many women who cannot. She smiles as she talks to the media, and shares how people respond when she tells them about her large family.
“People just consider me a freak of nature when I tell them,” Couch said.
Unless you actually come from a family with a history of multiple births, its safe to assume that most women who plan for children never think of having more than one baby at a time. But when Couch had her first set of twins, and then had a repeat with the second, the question that probably comes to the mind of many is, why even take the risk a third time?
According to one report, the chances of having THREE sets of twins is something like 1 in 88,000.

A woman five months pregnant had gone missing, but over the weekend, was found dead in the home she shared with her boyfriend and father, who lived downstairs in the Bronx residence.
Andrea Caruth appeared to have been beaten to death, as cadaver dogs located her partially buried, decomposing body in a crawlspace in her basement. It lay beneath plywood, gravel and cement and was discovered sometime around 3 a.m.
The home also served as a daycare.
Cops had done an initial search, but found no evidence of Caruth’s body being in the home. Yet something made them suspect foul play, and they doubled back with the dogs, who then discovered the woman’s body. Continue reading →
*Spies Travel in Denmark wants Danish citizens to have more sex. And because they believe that travel inspires intimacy (they swear research backs this up!) the real deal is they are attempting to boost the country’s low birth rate. To help this along they created an amusing new ad with a step-by-step guide.
And they don’t just want you to “Do it for Denmark,” the new inspiration is, “Do it for Mom.”
*Did you know that it is legal to physically abuse your child in the state of Florida? So the Florida police thought nothing of it when the father of a pre-teen did what he thought was lawful – he called the cops over to watch him beat the child .
The unnamed dad wanted to beat his 12-year-old daughter for fighting with her sister. But he didn’t want the assault to land him in jail for child abuse, so he put a call in to the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office to oversee the whipping.
If you think that’s a tad strange, check this: They came. They saw. They gave him the thumbs up and left. Continue reading →
*You know how Oprah sometimes asks her guests, “What do you know for sure?” Well we can pretty much assume with a level of certainty that the man who shot and killed a little girl because he wanted to torture her father, will go straight to hell.
