Real Heroes Start at Home

In a recent article from legendary blogger Perez Hilton, it was reported that David Farnham (pictured left) was so desperate to see the new Batman movie, that he dragged his two-year-old son along for the ride. The 1 AM screening of The Dark Knight, as well as the PG-13 rating, seemed inappropriate for his tot, so the brilliant parent decided it would be better to leave his son in the car, unattended, for the entire flick.

The boy sat there helpless in the 87 degree heat of Utah nights until passersby called 911. Luckily the toddler was found by firefighters in relatively good condition, but dehydrated and scared.

Although the father was arrested and put into police custody, I think he was still not punished enough. I think a better punishment would be to stick him in a car at 1 AM in the morning with the windows rolled up, providing the heat that his child had to experience. Oh yeah, and send the kid over to my house for some chocolate milk and TLC.

Oh, and I have two words for you, David. "Baby" and "sitter." Look into it.

Breaks my heart knowing there are plenty of people who would love to be parents and would do it well.

What an idiot.
It bewilders me that people like this have kids.

There should be some sort of mandatory test that would remove this type of moron from the procreation pool.
