He doesn't hate kids, he just doesn't pretend they are little snowflakes like most people do when asked about kids.

"Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children's letters - sometimes very hastily - but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, "Dear Jim: I loved your card." Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, "Jim loved your card so much he ate it." That to me was one of the highest compliments I've ever received. He didn't care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it."

FirstNationalBastard: Who doesn't hate children?

Sure, most people like their own brats, but aren't that fond of the rest of them.

And if you don't have kids, you hate 'em all.

I've always liked kids. It's like being around tiny drunks who are really into Blue's Clues.

Mikey1969: Pslightly Psycho: That is absolutely hilarious. I literally laughed out load at my desk. Now I'm getting weird looks.

Probably because you laughed out "load"... ;-)

I believe they call that "snowballing".

"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

This biatch should write herself a sequel called Thurrr Tha Wild Thanks Are about a young black child from a single parent household. His momma spent all the GVT aid on weed, crack, & lotto tix so he has no hope of never seeing tha Knicks. Well, one day he make himself some sneakers from tires & fabric and runs away 2 madison square garden & hangs out wit the Knicks. That old hard part would be telling this hurrr story in under 55 wordz like tha 1st book.
