Episode 014: Bob’s Your Uncle
Mom Takes 10-Year-Old To Get Tattoo

This story made the rounds a few days ago as a Georgia mother was arrested for allowing her 10-year-old son to get a tattoo. Despite the kid’s seemingly-honorable request to ink his 12-year-old brother’s name on his forearm who died in a car accident 2 years prior, Georgia law from 2010 states: “It shall be unlawful for any person to tattoo the body of any person under the age of 18, except a physician or osteopath.”

The mother, Chuntera Napier asked, “How can somebody else say that it’s not okay? He’s my child, and I have the right to say what I want for my child. I can’t go tell anybody else what I want for their child.” Well, I guess the same can be said for beating your child – so there’s that.

So I saw this story posted over on the BuzzFeed and I can safely say that I will have legitimate nightmares now. The Beavis and Butthead prosthetic models done by artist Kevin Kirkpatrick are hauntingly amazing.

But that’s not the reason for this post. In the comments, Vincent Gallagher posted the most liked comment thus far. “I told my son that’s his uncle and he was coming to the house this afternoon he said no dad hes weird lmao”.

#dadwin. We’re gonna help Vincent stay at the top and you should too. And if you don’t feel like sleeping tonight, check out the Beavis and Butthead real life photo set in the link below.

Coming up on the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics on July 27, I’m reminded of a story I didn’t quite pay attention to until I became a father.

Derek Redmond is a retired British athlete who held the British record for the 400 meters sprint, and won gold medals in the 4×400 meters relay at the World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games.

He’s most notably remembered for his performance at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona where he tore his hamstring in the 400 meters semi-final but fought through the pain and, with assistance from his father, managed to complete a full lap of the track as the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Twenty years later, Derek’s father is being honored in a very special way.

Khloe Kardashian’s Real Father

I’m still baffled as to why the Kardashian’s are famous.

I don’t even want to analyze it. I’ll let Kramer do the talking.

Though I must say, I did see this article on The Blemish that crossed my feed over on the Facebooks, which I have to say is pretty damn believable. “They settled on Alex Roldan, Kris Jenner’s hairdresser from her I Love My Friends music video. They put their photos side by side and allege Khloe’s middle name, Alexandra, is an ode to Alex and then they yelled, “See?! See?! I f**king told you so!””.

So if you care, there’s that. I’m going with part-time Lou Ferrigno, Alex Roldan.

This video of Sofia Walker was a fascinating comparison to what Dyrk Daniels captured a while back between a baby and a white Bengal tiger at the Cougar Moutain Zoo in Issaquah, Washington State.

I got to talk to Sofia’s father, Julian, about this unique experience his wife caught on camera at the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand.
