Father Of The Year

Now I'm no engineer, but I'm pretty sure I saw "disaster" written all over that stunt even before little Johnny got launched down the ramp. But at least the little tyke had the protection of a plastic roll bar. But I am disapointed that I didn't hear dad say, "Here, hold my beer" before he embarked on that father/child bonding experience. And (I'm stealing this next line): Did I hear a monkey at the end of that clip?

Now thats a "pretend redneck" If a real redneck would have been involved, you would have seen duct tape and some source of propulsion!

We have one of those little cars and when my oldest son was about 3 I was pushing him around the driveway really fast and making him spin out at the end.

One time, I was pushing the car and it seemed a little harder to push so I pushed harder despite the new resistance. Turns out, little Jarhead's legs had folded underneath the vehicle and his knees and shins accounted for the added resistance.

You should have seen that kid's legs.

I felt bad.

And that damn monkey went berserk.

What an idiot. Two different sized boards don't make a good ramp. CPS is always at work and never investigated any further. They deemed the parents sound minded to be irresponsible parents. And they thought the pet monkey was a good idea too.

that was no monkey, that was the gleeful chortle of an ambulance chasing attorney seeing the possibility of a new client.

Gosh, Jar, you made me laugh too....and feel guilty for it! I've had a similar experience with a Little Tykes car, the little boy in it and the tops of his feet getting scraped, a la resistance! The horror....=0
