I don’t read the “big kid” news. But when I do, I count on only the finest: The Daily Mail.

Last month I introduced my readers to one of North Carolina’s finest: Sean Harris, a pastor from Fayetteville, who asserted that parents should beat the gay out of the children. Well the goon I’ve got for you this week will give Sean Harris a run for his money.

Former Alabama gubernatorial candidate and Birmingham city councilman Bill Johnson believes in good clean family values. So strong are his convictions that he is now asking his wife of eight years and her three adult children to journey to Kiwiland to be near the multitudes of unborn babies he fathered through internet sperm donation. Wait, what?!
Jodi Rock, a 19-year old from Tahlequah, Oklahoma is being held on $200,000 bond for suspected child abuse. The evidence? Broken bones and severe flat iron burns on the genitals of her fifteen-month old son. Read all about this bitch after the break.
Women, not unlike birds, are wild and elusive creatures that can be tracked, identified, and — with the proper tactics and handling — captured. At least that’s the premise of Field Guide to Chicks, a new book detailing 92 “species” of women as documented by
bird female enthusiast Joe Bovino. Prepare to be offended after the break.
