Some Parents Just Don’t Understand

August 13th, 2008 · 60 Comments

Some people should never become parents. You know the kind of people I’m talking about: parents who leave their kids in cars during the summer, parents who feed their kids fast food three times a day, parents who let their kids listen to Clay Aiken.

These parents never should have become one either after they let their child die of starvation and then sued the state for not taking action against them, according to the AP.

The parents claim that it was the state agencies who caused their child’s death, not their negligent actions. So no Mr. Bank Robber, it’s not your fault that you robbed that bank. It’s the police department’s fault for not stopping you in the first place.

Prosecutors were, of course, angered by the suit. One attorney told reporters, “HULK SMASH PUNY TORT!”
