Unbelievable Custody Case!

SAGINAW, MI 10/18/08 (AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Saginaw courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more
than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge
then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that
they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family
and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Detroit Lions, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

sad too sad, but pobbabblly true.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
