Mum backs dog, chides son for pulling ears before mauling

“People are telling me I should shoot the dog, and as much as I love my son to death, I believe Noah was annoying her. I love the dog and she’s part of the family,” Ms Cottier said.

Lady, your son is TWO YEARS OLD. If it is anybody’s fault that he got bitten it’s most certainly yours. Nobody calmly tells a two year old to stop playing on the road and then turns around and say, “but I told him to stop doing it,” when he gets hit by a car. You know what normal people do – they physically remove their child from a dangerous situation. I know your dog has never shown aggressive tendencies but she’s a 50 kg dog. A two year old child doesn’t stand a chance.

I’m cooking but my kids won’t get a penny: Nigella

“I am determined that my children should have no financial security. It ruins people not having to earn money.”

I don’t know what I think about this one. On the one hand, I know I need to teach my children that they need to EARN a living but I’d hate to leave them without any security. Part of why we earn our money is FOR our children – to better their lives now and when we pass on.

Thoughts?

More fairfax shenanigans! I think punographic headlines might become a regular.

Snort what they thought it was

Punography = 7/10

Groan Factor = 0/10

Oh of this one I do approve. But tha’s SNORT how you make porridge!*

Punography = 2/10

Groan Factor = 10/10

There are no words. Really cringeworthy.

Conjoined twins play…apart

See here’s the thing. If they are now playing apart then they aren’t conjoined anymore, right? But is the reporter so devilishly clever that he/she is using it as a pun also as in playing a part/role in a school production? Oh I don’t know! *sob*

Formerly conjoined two-year-old twin girls walked, played and swatted at bubbles in the US today during their first public appearance since risky November separation surgery, which doctors said they had only a 50 per cent chance of surviving.

Ok..so far so good. They are formerly conjoined. But…

Still, the twins remain inseparable, Arias said.

My head assplode.

*Naught but very old Australians will get this one. Sorry – don’t mean to be elitist or anything
