Messed Up

Regular blogging will return soon, but this story is so ridiculous that I felt obligated to link to it now. In an effort to win some Hannah Montana tickets in a contest, a mother helped her six-year old daughter write an essay that began, "My daddy died this year in Iraq." Problem: her dad did not die in Iraq this year. 

The mother responded with the classic, "We did the essay and that's what we did to win . . . we did whatever we could do to win."

Well, then, I guess it's OK.

With mommy displaying such fine morals, I'm sure the daughter will turn out just fine.
