belome: I figured it was only a matter of time before a mod greenlight one of these stories.

I wonder how long before he steals their hubcaps?


I know what he got for Christmas: your bike

flux: neongoats: I thought it was a great story when I read it two days ago. Haters gonna hate. In this case the haters should be punched in the genitals until they die.

Wow... that would take a very long time. Like, death might come not from the actual genital punching, but from dehydration or exposure depending on the circumstances. At some point, you've got a person so weak and close to death that they're unable to move, but still, someone is there, punching them repeatedly in the genitals. You'd have to have a medical professional present to call the time of death, if for no other reason than to let the puncher know when to finally stop punching.


OMFSM....horrifying yet deliciously funny

Well he's going to have a good time in school from now on.

PrivateCaboose: Molavian: I'd do it for a kid I adopted.  Maybe it means the world to him.

I think if he wanted to do it - why not?  They obviously did it with the goal of getting what they wanted, and not caring that it was silly.  IMO, this is parenting done right.


It probably means MORE than the world to him.  Good for the whole group of them.

Yay! Happy good news about a family having fun and laughing!
What good parents! You gets cookies!

It made me crack up and I wish we could see all the pictures.

Think how much easier it must have been to take those than with an infant.

Heartwarming story. They sound like great parents, and a kid that has a lot of potential.

This is a young man who is completely secure in who he is, has a sense of humor and has lucked into a great adoptive family.

The only losers in this case are the haters.

Aw. Sweet. Needs a great big 13 year old footprint, though. Maybe a bronzed gym sneaker.

He'll get too old for this joke eventually.

This really is a cute story, and I'd love to see it as part of a campaign to get older kids adopted. The second ad? "Potty training was a breeze with our little Michael. All we had to do was say "It's down the hall, next to your bedroom." He said "Okay, thanks." And that was it! We were done with potty training. Parenting is awesome!"

The Downfall: Well, it was his idea. I don't know if that makes this creepier or just sad.


You've never spent much time with a teen boy, have you? This would pretty much be the most fun thing they ever did. And probably the least disgusting.

/I imagine the new parents are learning a lot of slang terms they really, really didn't want to.
//Good on them for adopting a teen.

The goal was to have a little fun and mock the typical "newborn poses...the Higgins family said on Facebook they hope the photo will help raise awareness for adoption of older children. "

Dawwwwww

Good for him and good for the parents. Sounds like they had some fun together on this.

And they adopted his sister, too!

Done in one

I assumed from the headline that it was the parents' idea and got the willies but after reading TFA I have the warm fuzzies.

You rock, awesome family!

That's a pretty damn good idea.

favorited

when i read the headline, i had assumed the parents were freaks, and making the kid do this against their will. Glad I was wrong.

Also, the one pic of the kid with his head in his hands reminds me of that pic of the football player holding the football with his feet, while he smiles

Thanks! Here's another: Mom's chasing a wild toddler boy around the house  Dad turns and says "Congratulations. Looks like you're the NORMAL son in this family." Kid (who is older and perhaps a different race from the parents) nods and says "Thanks, Dad. I mean that."

Eh, I got plenty more. Somebody get me a meeting with the Ad Council?

Hahaha!! Very cool.

Nice kid :D

I just figure the process could be mechanized with one of those machines that wears in mattresses and shiat. Or one of these: [www.colourbox.com image 480x339]


Have you seen the Mythbusters 'knock your socks off' episode?  They have an uppercut machine that would do it in one or two hits.  (cant' find a better image, not even sure if that's it).
