Perhaps she's just a big fan of 80's one-hit wonders.

There's a girl in a box...

I love the 'She's an awesome mom' statement from the kid.

Can you give me and a few other Farkers here in Huntsville a heads-up before they drop it? Would really appreciate it.

It wasn't a baby, it was a thirteen year old girl.

Bah. Who said I needed to read the article?

So.. they had two empty boxes in the car.. and the third empty box wouldn't fit. So they put it on the roof and used the kid to add weight to the empty box.

And it never occurred to either of these brainiacs to just collapse the empty boxes before they put them in the car?

Seriously.. why do we even let people like this breed? I mean, Darwin was doing his best here, and some dolt stopped him.

yah right, if I was 13 and my mom said I could ride on top of the car in a box, I'd be up there giggling like an idiot. I doubt you'd find many thirteen year olds who would decline parent-approved car surfing.

I was doing far more stupid things than this at 13.

It was the kid's idea, the mom (supposedly) allowed it begrudgingly. Seeing how the story is coming out of Marshall Co, I'm really surprised there wasn't a Mexican and meth involved.

Hey, no skin off my uvula, but a 13 year old girl in a box is more interesting.

How to tell a parent wouldn't know how to teach a child the right way to do things if a handbook weighing 10 pounds dropped on the parent's head.

The 13 year old doesn't have enough common sense to figure out she would be safer waiting for mommy to come back for her.

Worst. Movie. Ever.

Watching that cinematic tripe was the visual equivalent of tasting one's own vomit after an all-night tequila bender.

This. Her Mom is still retarded, but the kid is right in her 13 year old brain when she says her mom is AWESOME!

Thirteen year old children do not possess common sense. it's an empirical fact of nature.

Not a troll & never have been. If you really liked that movie, then more power to you. Our tastes are obviously very different though...

Why didn't she get into one of the boxes that was IN the car according to the FA?

Never saw movie in question.

Also, on a side note, If I was going to be on the news defending my decision to allow my spawn to ride atop a moving vehicle I would definitely pick something nicer out of my wardrobe than a six dollar walmart brand sweatshirt, and maybe do something with my face.

/I might also learn how to avoid run-on sentences.

Now, the woman and her daughter are speaking out

Cool. But to whom are they speaking out? That's what's really important here.

only to WAAY 31

No way!

WAAY!

Man, I love reporters.

From the story:

She says the boxes were for an event at a local church. "I was going to a 30 hour phantom at Life Point Church in Albertville" Haley said. "We were not going to eat for thirty hours, and raise money for the hungry, and we were going to sleep outside in boxes.

What kind idiot reporter thinks this makes any sense?

/Mom's an idiot
//Reporter's not much better
///The kid said FAMINE
 
2009-10-06 10:08:02 AM  
"We were going twenty miles per hour." Jackie Knott told WAAY 31. "We were going slow as possible. We almost were about a mile and a half from the church making it there I know don't it was just a bad decision."

I think that quote explains everything....

Right. Most of these words look like English. I have seen them before. The way they are put together makes almost no sense.

Boaz?

So this has got something to do with Freemasonery and the Knights Templar then?

"She's a good mom and she would never do anything wrong."

I disagree on both counts. She isn't and she did.

I was trying to get "fast" from "phantom", but I think you're right. But the reporter loves her exclamation marks, so give her props for that.
