A primer on parental cruelty:

Baby's Named a Bad, Bad Thing

This had me crying with laughter -- and guilt, for laughing at fellow parents, because you're supposed to step back and say to yourself, "Well, they chose a baby name that's good for their family, if not for mine." But I didn't say that, I just laughed and laughed at all the stupid things people name their poor, defenseless children. I'm sorry if you find your child's name on the list and are angry at the fact that I laughed at you, but considering that my name is on the list, too, I'm pretty much cleared of all charges.
