Nuttiest Thing on the Internet Today

Read this story and then tell me something isn't wrong in the world, or at least in this little corner of the world.
April Wright is 21 years old and is going through a divorce with her husband who is in jail. She says she is not sure how her 4-year-old managed to get out of the house, open a beer, and steal the neighbors presents from under their tree. Now she's just glad he's okay and says she won't let it happen again.

The child, Hayden Wright, was found around 1:45 am Tuesday, wandering the streets of his neighborhood. In a police reports, officers said he was wearing a little girl's dress and drinking a beer.
All of a sudden I feel a little better about my parenting efforts & results. *

Oddly enough, that was actually not the nuttiest thing I read all day. I picked up the USA Today Sports Weekly newspaper and read this quote from Michael Irvin:
Michael Irvin, the Hall of Fame wide receiver who won three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys, said Sunday he would trade in his championships and his spot in the Hall of Fame for a perfect 19-0 season. "I would turn in all three Super Bowl rings and my Hall of Fame bust for one undefeated season," Irvin an NFL Network analyst, said on NFL Gameday Morning.
His math stinks. Three championships are better than one - no matter how special that one might sound.

* - knock on wood

He just wants to be like his dad. What a sobering thought that we have that effect.
