  5. I think mom is regretting that "unfortunate night" every day she looks at and listens to this kid.

  6. I bet his mother was thinking. 'Fucking cheap condom. I wish every day this little abortion gone wrong was caught in high end rubber.'

  7. Yet another shining example of why it's never too late for FALCONPUNCH.

  8. Poor woman probably already spent all her money on this kid's braces.

  9. There should be a law that imprisons anyone who doesn't beat a kid like that senseless, bystanders included.

  13. Ok, who seriously talks to their parents like this? I think Paul Lynde had it right about kids today. DX

  14. That's the poster-child for when physical abuse should be not only allowed but encouraged, right there...
    Seriously, I'd consider my younger self a bit of a brat- but not to the levels of some of the kids you've depicted within these digital pages (as well as the ones I've seen/heard for myself in various store's toy-isles).
    These parents are failing epically.
    If this kind of shit is typical of the up-and-coming generation then we are all going to be FUCKED. Now if you'll excuse me- I have the overwhelming urge to go out to my front porch and yell at neighborhood children to GET OFF MY LAWN!!!

  15. Heh. Originally misread it as hatter instead of hater. Don't be a [Mad] hatter!

  16. Well, to be fair we live in a society that actively encourages unprepared-for pregnancies (see: reality TV, movies, religion), then bombards children with a constant stream of anti-social-behavior messages (see: the rest of TV, comics, games, Internet, yadda yadda).

    Parents are then told it's all THEIR fault, because they didn't monitor and fight that constant stream 24/7 for each child for eighteen years. And of course they don't beat their kids enough hurr hurr durrrrrrrrr.

    It's not that parents are failing epically, it's that they don't stand a chance against the rest of us.

  17. If you want a framed print of this then bookmark it. There's a good chance you'll be able to order a signed framed print of this for $20 in December.

  18. Well ahead of you, good Doctor.

  19. If I never have one of these I'll be happy.

  20. Sounds like "hater" is kind of losing it's meaning.

  21. "It's not that parents are failing epically, it's that they don't stand a chance against the rest of us."

    Of course, if that were even remotely true then this behavior would normal, even typical. And if it were that widespread then the cartoon wouldn't have any value as comedy. But the cartoon IS funny, and it's funny because the behavior is shockingly bad.

    For as long as there have been kids there has been some percentage of awful parents, and for as long as there have been awful parents there have been people like you making excuses for them. And you've always been wrong.

  22. It'd be full-on Inigo Montoya for me.

    'You keep using that word. "Hater." I do not think it means what you think it means.'

  23. @Anonymous, 8:26AM - I couldn't agree more. Yes, there are tons of cultural messages that direct kids in less-than-wonderful behavior. Anyone remember the Bart Simpson "underachiever and proud of it" foofahrah? And yes, parents can't watch their kids 24/7/365.24. Fortunately, they don't have to. Just keeping a reasonably watchful eye on them is enough to catch this kind of behavior and correct it. I taught high school for 13 years, and saw far too many instances of parents who'd rather be friends to their kids than parents. That's just what every 13-year-old needs, a 40-year-old pal. At some point, the responsibility devolves on the child, but the failure starts with the parents.

  24. Anonymous, 8:26AM: "No, no, no! I LIKE garbage media! So it IS the parents' fault! It HAS to be! And my scientific proof is that media's influence hasn't had a 100% success rate! So there! Quid pro bono!"

    Diane: "I was a teacher for thirteen years and saw bad parents! Therefore garbage media is exonerated! Parents have it easy! I was a teacher! And not that kind you read about in the paper sometimes either! That makes me an authority!!"

    God I love this place. "Me liek comic boogs, so don't u blaim dem! Torturd logik follow!"

    Quid pro bono? Are you seriously suggesting we should send British money to the guy who sings for U2?

    I just want to point out that nothing you posted actually disputes our points, let alone disproves them. If our logic was really that tortured you should have no problem pointing out its flaws, yet you're unable to.

    And seriously, if you want to mock someone else's intelligence you should learn the difference between "pro bono" and "quid pro quo" first. A mistake like that might lead someone to believe you were just a moron with no rational basis for his beliefs, which is of course impossible.

  28. I don't think he or she meant either "pro bono" or "quid pro quo". I think he or she meant "quod erat demonstrandum".

    Or he or she could have just meant "Look at me! I'm an idiot!"

  29. If I were to speak to my mom like that when I was his age, I have no doubt that I would have received a good whoopin' when we got home.

  30. And once again the OVC commenters prove themselves much worse than the social detritus on exhibition.

  31. The upside to this story is the kid got his book, right after his mother put her fist in his mouth. No need for brace$ now.
