Sometimes the joke is just too easy

The family lives in Arkansas. They've just welcomed baby #16. The father's name is Jim Bob. The mother was only 17 when they got married AND she has a mullet.

Can't beat that.

Considering a tubal ligation,

*Edited to add a disclaimer: I mean absolutely no disrespect to the former Congressman and his family. In fact, I hope they're very happy. I am not - in any way - making fun of them with this post. I only mean to say that their situation will likely give the comedians some good material because Arkansas, to some, has been (probably unfairly) stereotyped as being a bit of a "hick" state.

They had a special on TLC about that family. The show must be old because it ended with her giving birth to #15.

And the woman wants MORE?!?!

How many more before they just start falling out of her?

Perplexio said...

I mean... seriously, the woman must have a deli counter in her uterus so her husband's sperm can just "take a number and get in line."

"Don't worry if you don't get in the first egg, another will be here to serve you shortly!"

Ms. V said...


To be honest, they're probably falling out of her already. She probably doesn't even have to push!

Have either of you thought of the disgusting mental image you've just given me, re: babies falling out of her?

Perplexio said...

Any time, Erin, glad I could be of service. ;-)

I take it you weren't as grossed out by the deli counter imagery?

Erin said...

I just hope she does mad Kegel exercises.

Ms. V said...

Goodness, yes. She must have to do them constantly. Crunches too, to help keep her abdominal wall strong.

16 babies. I'm still a bit shocked.
