ENTERTAINMENT DROPPINGS: What Will We Tell The Children About The Children?


K-Swiss sent us this screencap he made of CNN.com's top stories yesterday, with a particular one highlighted. If you have astigmatism and can't read it above, try reading it below.



Gee, I don't know, CNN, what WILL we tell them? Maybe, oh, I don't know, like, maybe that -- just like her sister -- she's an ignorant hillbilly with no sense of responsibility? That everyone around her knows she'll only ever be a C-lister and consequently hasn't garnered enough attention or handlers to keep her out of trouble? That when mommy and daddy (or sixteen year-old "celebrity" and boyfriend) love each other very much, the stork shows up, impregnates the woman, and then the press talk about it way too much?

I think a better question for CNN to have asked -- and it's too late, Newsweek already beat them to it -- is W.W.N.D.? (translation: What Will Nickolodeon Do).

Or how about the factor that Anonymous A brought up, and which MTV of all people have decided to discuss: what about the legal stuff? Like, don't they arrest kids for stuff like this, particularly in certain geographical regions?

Anyways, thanks to CNN for encouraging yet another round of awkward and most likely unnecessary family discussions that kids will use as ammunition to alienate themselves from their parents. I mean, it's not like this is nearly as important as when somebody bit it in the last Harry Potter book or anything.
