Well at least she didn't lock them in the basement to starve to death like that other asscircus.
2003-02-14 10:16:56 AM  
Oh come on, she left food for them, her credit card (a.k.a. porn subscriptions till you pass out) and emergency numbers just in case you overdraft the cards. What more could six kids want??
2003-02-14 10:37:46 AM  
Do you often pass out from an over-indulgence of porn, Darth.Balls?

My mean old parents always took us kids with them on vacation.

"Are we there yet?"
2003-02-14 11:53:32 AM  
I would pay good money to be there at the airport when she steps off the plane. I'd set up a lawn chair, have a six pack & a bucket of chicken... make a good show of it.

They should give the toddlers to Hi & Ed. She's barren as her womb is a rocky place where no seed can find purchase.
2003-02-14 12:00:43 PM  
I hope someone has live coverage of her stepping off the plane. If not, I'll be in the lawn chair next to Bump.
2003-02-14 12:18:10 PM  
hero tag would be better.

2003-02-14 12:19:26 PM  
Aw come on, don't be so hard on her! After all, she DID leave them $7.00!!! That should have easily lasted - why that's more than 50 cents per child!!!
2003-02-14 12:20:10 PM  
Hey, moms need vacations too!
2003-02-14 12:21:04 PM  
7 bucks should be enough to buy at least a coupla bottles of MD20/20 or Night Train.
2003-02-14 12:21:46 PM  
I'd never hit a woman, but I'd sure shake the shiat outta her! "'Da hell's wrong with you woman?!?"
2003-02-14 12:22:35 PM  
who is believed to be a college student...six children, ages 6 to 14

My god, how young must she have been when she had her first kid? College kids don't have 6 kids of their own, let alone a 14 year old...Yeah, I hope Social Services takes them away.
2003-02-14 12:24:35 PM  
just goes to show ya that people make the same mistakes, espeically considering the age issue that brandenburg_concerto brought up.
2003-02-14 12:24:54 PM  
Sexy_Biatch, $1.16 per kid with four cents left over, actually.

In any case, I still say they people should just stop breeding. Them and their spawn are taking up all my oxygen.
2003-02-14 12:24:56 PM  
Can I be the first to say......?

2003-02-14 12:25:03 PM  
i hope she gets her children taken away. and put in jail. and executed. people this stupid dont deserve to breathe.
2003-02-14 12:25:31 PM  
I think I missed this episode of the Brady Bunch. This is the one where Mike and Carol go to Italy, Alice is on vacation also, and the kids fend for themselves, with Greg taking advantage of Marcia ?

"Marcia, Marcia. Marcia ! OOOOOH Marcia, yeah baby, who's your REAL daddy ? Ooooooh Marcia, OOOOOOOOH Marcia, ummm..."

they make it sound like she did a bad thing.
2003-02-14 12:25:39 PM  
I'd buy an X-Box.
2003-02-14 12:26:29 PM  
college student??? how did she get into college? she obviously couldn't spell birth control.
2003-02-14 12:26:35 PM

I sooooooo want to see that.
2003-02-14 12:26:53 PM  
On the other hand, why didn't anything this cool ever happen to me growing up? If you could put weed on a credit card, these kids would have it perfect.
2003-02-14 12:27:08 PM  
Sometimes growing up is an accelerated process. These "kids" have learend a lesson too many other children have been denied. That will teach them the value of a dollar! They will be a great asset to society now, rather than joining the masses on the wellfare rolls.
/not sarcastic at all

You need a license to drive a car.
You need a license for your gun.
But they'll let ANYONE become a parent.
2003-02-14 12:28:23 PM  
I wonder what her defense could possibly be...if it goes to court, that is.
2003-02-14 12:28:24 PM  
I'd like to know if she took more than $7 for herself on her trip.
My guess would be more like 10.
2003-02-14 12:28:34 PM  
Some people *do* go to college later than right after High school.
2003-02-14 12:28:49 PM  
Where's Christina Applegate when you need her?
2003-02-14 12:29:05 PM  
I don't see what all the fuss is about. I leave six kids alone at home all the time. Of course, I'm not dumb enough to leave them my credit card. Who know what they'll put on the darn thing.

2003-02-14 12:29:52 PM  
just because you pass a child through your cooch, it doesn't make you a mom.
2003-02-14 12:30:04 PM  
I'm not saying she's smart or did the right thing, just that she's possibly older AND SHOULD KNOW BETTER!


2003-02-14 12:30:08 PM  
Not all college students are young. If she married young and was supported by a husband who eventually left, then she might (a) have six kids, and (b) find herself needing to suport herself, and perhaps going to college to increase the likelihood she could get a well-paying job.
2003-02-14 12:30:16 PM  
$10 says so don't come back.
2003-02-14 12:30:22 PM  
AlienOmega - I meant to say more than 50 cents per week...
2003-02-14 12:30:30 PM  
Seven whole dollars, huh? I give my kids each more than that when they go to the mall for a few hours.
At least she didn't kill them, but I don't think that she has to worry about being weighted down by them anymore.
Oh, and that Mother of the Year award is out the window, too.
2003-02-14 12:30:32 PM  
An anonymous caller left a message with police one day after the mother left on Feb. 3

Anyone else find this statement suspicious? Did the college student kill their real mother and then flee to Italy, where she called the police to rescue the kids? If their real mother was abusing or neglecting them, then the murderer would be somewhat of a HERO.
2003-02-14 12:30:49 PM  
who cares? survival of the fitests and all... if the kids are too stupid to survive for TWO WEEKS with a CREDIT CARD, FOOD, and a LIST OF PHONE NUMBERS, then they should get outta the gene pool.
2003-02-14 12:31:33 PM  
"I would pay good money to be there at the airport when she steps off the plane. I'd set up a lawn chair, have a six pack & a bucket of chicken... make a good show.

Hell, my sister and brother-in-law would go away and I had to "babysit" my sixteen year old niece. My niece didn't complain, though. Her friends would come over, I would collect their car keyes and do a beer run for them. The friends' parents thought all was OK 'cuz "Debbie's aunt was staying there". Actually, "Dogface" was created during one of our drunken parties.
2003-02-14 12:32:34 PM  
I can see what all the fuss is about - how come she didn't shoot the children, do the time, write the book and then go on holiday from the proceeds? She would have had a much better time.
2003-02-14 12:32:35 PM  
"$10 says so don't come back."

Sorry its early.

$10 says she does not come back if she hears of it over there.
2003-02-14 12:32:39 PM  
Party in Greeley, CO this weekend!
2003-02-14 12:32:42 PM  
My bet would be on her seventh kid being made somewhere around Salermo.. or Como..
2003-02-14 12:32:49 PM  
HelloNeumanAre you being sarcastic?
2003-02-14 12:33:20 PM  
Didn't John Hughes make about 300 movies about these parents during the 80s and 90s?

If I were one of the kids, I would use my computer to create a hottie woman/genie that could whip me up a porsche. That really kills time while parents are away!
2003-02-14 12:33:25 PM  
Ok without first reading the article I gotta say this sounds
farkin awesome. I wish my parents had gone outa town and left me with a credit card.

*goes off to read article*
2003-02-14 12:33:44 PM  
Based on the thought process that NOBODY COULD BE THIS STUPID AND THINK IT IS OKAY TO DO TAHT!, I'd like to propose that the mother did go off to Italy and ran out on her kids for good to live an exotic life elsewhere, but was also the "anonymous caller" who didn't want harm to come to her children, other than the obvious psychological feelings of abandonment, depression, etc. that will certainly arise. Therefore, she called authorities on herself really....ooooh, if I throw in some dinosaurs and a little more cowbell, this could be movie o' the year!!
2003-02-14 12:33:45 PM  
You don't have to be age 18-22 to be in college, you know.
2003-02-14 12:33:50 PM  
What would the appropriate items to leave with six kids for two weeks? I think we should take this opportunity to help out all the future moms who wish to take vacations alone with their boyfriends.
My List:
$25 in cash
Credit card
Weedwacker (for obvious reasons)
Pizza deliver numbers

Your turn!
