sounds like a Sarah Palin situation...

Ok, so I'm doing my morning troll thru the headlines and came across this breaking news story about a random 12 year-old British boy named Alfie who "thought it would be a good idea to have a baby" and knocked up some dingbat 14 year-old chick named Chantelle from around his way.

Apparently there's all this shock and outrage because these poor (literally and figuratively) children were unsupervised and having sex at such a young age. And wait on it, now all the girl's neighbors are dry snitching on the parents, talking about, "They let the kids run wild on the street until all hours, they have no control over them." You don't say?

Last time I checked, there were more than enough 13 and 14 year-olds in the United States knocked up or pushing a stroller around the hood. And if the Jerry Springer show's consistent top teir ratings are any indication, there are probably 3x as many undocumented cases in the countless middle America trailer parks.

Call me jaded but exactly what's the big deal here? Maybe it's just a slow news day...

  1. The boy in question is supposedly Britain's second youngest dad. But the story has since developed. Now 3 other teenage boys have come forward and are claiming to be the father (guess they smelt the money and decided they wanted a piece of the action) . The 12 year old now has to take a DNA test. *SMH*. Jerry Springer indeed!
