It's not okay, even during hunting season

Okay I'll admit it, I don't even know when hunting season is. I guess it depends on what's being hunted. Anyway...I was totally blown away today when I stumbled upon a brief article about a man and woman from Indiana who were arrested for, get this, being drunk enough to think it would be a good idea to strap 4 children to the hood of their car and drive 3 blocks. I don't know if they were stopped after only 3 blocks or if that's as far as they needed to go, but I seriously just don't get what goes through the minds of some people.

Was there not enough room IN the car because they bought so much booze at the liquor store? Or maybe it was just one of those drunken "hey, ya know what would be realllly fun????" moments.

Either way, people are complete idiots.

I have often thought, and maybe even said aloud, that I would drop the kids off on the side of the road for someone else to take home because they wouldn't stop bickering at each other. But I definitely wouldn't follow through with that. (Even though I know they would be returned unwanted within the hour). I'm allowed to think it, it's what gets me through those 'annoying kid' moments.

But seriously...the hood of your car? Like a deer you just shot and planned to make jerky out of?

These kids are pretty young so hopefully they won't grow up with fond memories of being tied to the hood of the family car and driven home like that under the watchful eye of their wasted parents. And please don't let them think it's okay and do it to their kids when they have their own and find themselves leaving the liquor store parking lot looking for a good challenge. Break the cycle, people.

In other news, I watched a special on NatGeo yesterday speculating what the world would look like several years after humans just suddenly disappeared, thus no longer able to screw it up. It was looking pretty good.
