Tough Love post #1  quote:



Dear Abby,
I recently read your column advising grandparents on "tough love" for grandparents to give misbehaving grandchildren, whose own parents let them run wild. I have followed your advice, and enclose a picture demonstrating my technique when my grandson just won't behave while I'm babysitting for his parents. They have told me not to spank him, so I just take him for a ride, and he usually calms down afterward.
Sign me,
Tough Love Grandma


(This is great guys. Good Stuff)

Sick, with all the child abuse going on in this world, not something to joke about.

I could have very well made that in psp or ps 7.0 myself very easily. Lighten up a little bit - and it isn't sick. Child abuse is, but damn if your post isn't sick. People just don't get jokes anymore.
p.s. I love you too

post #5  quote:

Let me lay it down for those who clearly think the pic is real.
sheesh.
The kids hair isn't moving - i don't know about you, but at 10 mph (let alone 99) my hair would blow all over.

Second - the speed limit "35" is blurry - the 99 is TOO clear to be authentic.

In other words - you put someone on the front of the car - wrinkle up the shirt and take the picture of them holding on - the car isn't moving. Take for instance, right hand is holding on (left looking at the picture) and the left hand (right in the picture) is a loose hold. The knuckles of the right hand(your left) would have a color change due to holding on tight - there is no change in this coloration.

After you have that single shot, through a laying technique and selection options place in another picture of the speed limit sign - change the limit from whatever to 99 - flatten the picture and there you go.

There's grandma doing 99mph with a kid on the hood.
Or at least the illusion there of.

Get a sense of humor people - I'll repeat myself: I COULD make a picture like that and make it look REAL - in about 30 minutes

I never though it was real. I just didn't find it funny. Hey, we all have different things that make us laugh. I was not offended by the picture per say, just found it a little disturbing. Yes, jokes can be disturbing. I wasn't expecting that. Anyway, I do applaud you for trying to bring some humor to this area.

thanks Fuscia - my reply was not towards you though, so please do not take it as such. it was for the other person - yes to pic is disturbing - but usually when i post thinks like that i am not attacked, called sick, and told child abuse isn't a laughing matter.
I agree with marlene on that, but her point could have been stressed in a different manner - rather then preaching common sense.

I got this email too, I thought it was hilarious!
As for those humorless individuals who thought the post and pic were "sick", Yes...child abuse is horrible, so is disease epidemics, terrorism, politics, violence, crime, war and indifference. So what is the best way to deal with it? JUST b!tch and complain about how terrible it is? Come on! Lighten up, find humor in even the worst of tragedies; laughter is the best medicine that helps us all cope better through difficult times.

and the joke isn't funny, in my opinion. Okay, slender, do you get it, it's my opinion that the joke isn't funny. It's my opinion that jokes about some subject matters are NEVER funny. It's my opinion that joking about child abuse is SICK!

Okay, now laugh away.

Too funny, DreamZ..........thanks for the chuckle!!!


Child abuse never even crossed my mind at all but I choose to see the positive.......and humor, in life as it is a much happier way to live!!!

Anyone ever seen that pic of the little kitty hanging on for dear life (I've got wrapping paper with that pic, but have seen it on other items)..............it's so cute , you just want to go out there and rescue and cuddle him. The point is, the pic could be taken as animal abuse if you choose to see it that way, but the pic isn't mean't that way, it's supposed to evoke a good cuddly feeling.
Dreamz's joke isn't mean't as abuse but to evoke a feeling in us.......hasn't everyone met a bratty kid like that????
