(Muskogee Phoenix)   Three-year-old saves family from fire, waking slumbering parents by going to their room and saying "Mommy, my bed's on fire." Then, during interview, he announces: "Let me go, I want to go run over there and spit"   (muskogeephoenix.com ) divider line 40

My almost-3-year-old would have been the one to set the fire.

Oh, you've got one too?  That's exactly what I thought.

Also, well done kid, but "Kypton"?  Oy.

I feel this is somehow connected to the reason why the smoke detectors in the home were inoperable or absent. Perhaps as a reflection of the parents' intelligence.

He foiled dad's murder suicide attempt.

At first I thought the boy's name was "Krypton."

Went back to paper and plastic for a while after telling one kid "Wash the dishes" and then looking in on him a minute later to find he was scorching my floor with a lighter and some Pam (the spray, not a female).

Americium, not Krypton.

/close, though
 
2013-02-20 12:10:49 PM  
I kept reading the kid's name as Krypton, and I was like "Are his parents comic book nerds or chemists?"

That's a new way of getting out of doing chores
 
2013-02-20 12:15:07 PM  
Kypton? WTF, is that like a new white trash attempt at sounding classy. Anyway, good on the kid. Family should have had some solid smoke detectors in every room, so you don't have to rely on the kid to wake your ass up.

"Funny thing is, I had my phone charging on the headboard of my bed while I slept," Ames said. "The dresser next to the bed is just completely burned and destroyed, but my phone was fine."

Humm.
Why would a 3 yr olds bed spontainiously burst into flames?
Anyone missing a lighter or matches?

TFA says the fire started in the bathroom.  I can only assume someone had taco bell and then carelessly lit a match or plugged in a hair dryer.

Hahahahahahahahahaha!

The kid had to spit. Come on, that's funny!

Same here. Also, that would have been a way better name.

The kid did started the fire and yeah, WTF, no smoke detectors?

/also: stupid name, kid
 
2013-02-20 12:44:46 PM  
TFA says the kid lives with his stepmother and... her boyfriend. I am confus. Is the boyfriend the biological fater, and since she's a live-in girlfriend, she somehow counts as a stepmother...? o_O

How about waiting until you get home to find out, like in prehistoric times?

Nice to see that things other than cheap-ass religious knickknacks and crappy art can survive real-world disasters.

$10 at Wal-Mart and a whole lot more reliable than a 3 year old.

Social services should take the kid because he's being raised by idiots.

Actually that would make his son Sperman.

Nahh, he'd just burn down some well-meaning foster parents' house.

Leave him where he is, Darwin has plans for this family.

Don't touch him, he's a real live wire.

Ahh this takes me back. Mom was a firebug she liked to burn shiat for the insurance money. biatch set fire to three houses and two cars. She really liked blaming us kids though, you know the whole kid forgot turn off the stove, kid forgot to unplug the iron, kid tried to kill his brother with fire.

You know one way to tell when someone is lying about arson? When some prized possession miraculously survives the fire.

From the article "Funny thing is, I had my phone charging on the headboard of my bed while I slept," Ames said. "The dresser next to the bed is just completely burned and destroyed, but my phone was fine."

Yep this was arson.

Let me tell you the first time you lose all your trophies, including the one you prize the most 1st place in Breast Stroke at an invitational meet, Star Wars toys, and everything you care about you learn not to prize possessions. You know my mom is dead and I still hate that farking junkie biatch.

He totally started those fires.

I read that as 33-year-old, so there was no way that story was going to meet my expectations.

Me too.  Which doesn't really matter since they're both weird as hell.  I mean, seriously....Kypton?

Couldn't they just say Meijer?
