Boy, you are one big baby!

Lu Hao, the three-year-old who weighs a staggering 132lbs - and he's still growing

At 132lbs, Lu Hao is already five times the size of a normal child his age.

The three-year-old toddler from China eats a staggering THREE bowls of rice when he sits down for a family meal.

When Lu Hao was born he weighed just 2.6kg (5.7 lbs), however, from the time he was three months old he began to gain weight rapidly.

Obese: Lu Hao has managed to put on 10kg (22 lbs) in the past year

'His appetite is so good that for a meal he can eat three big bowls of rice, even larger than I and his mother,' said Hao's father Lu Yuncheng.

Since Hao was one-year-old his parents have tried to keep a careful eye on his diet.
However, Hao's mother Chen Yuan comments: 'We have to let him be as if we don't feed him he will cry non-stop'...

Lose the Kardashians

I was flipping channels on the TV the other day and came across an episode of a "reality" show about the Kardashians. Other than being appalled at what has happened to Bruce Jenner's face, I wondered who the h-e-doubletoothpicks are these people? What exactly have they done to make them worthy of a TV show that is "reportedly" about their lives.

I say reality in quotes and reportedly in quotes because I've never believed for one minute that so-called "reality" TV is not manipulated and scripted.

Have these women who looked like they've had about $2 million worth of, uh, enhancement and plastic surgery done anything worthy or reflective of a life lived in Christ? Uh, not that I can detect. Are they great humanitarians? Do they clothe the homeless (well, given the ho outfits they usually wear they may be doing the homeless a favor there)

It looked like, in the brief clip I saw that this show is about a family of rich spoiled and selfish brats who don't work and think the world revolves around them.

How many of us think that life is real? How many people really live like that? Yet, those are the role models the media is giving us.

Reject them-don't keep up with them.

Hump Day Haiku

What are friends for?
Is it a limerick?
"Once was a girl named Cathy"
Nantucket? Bucket?

Educational standards
What would the week be
without a complaint 'bout school
please be recess time

Look behind you
Sick again with strep
must be a conspiracy
chem trails, Big Brother

The desert
Buried in jammies
He moved to Babylonia
King Tut. Funky Tut.

Not so cool hand
1st sacrament time?
failure to communicate
parish rates a "fail"
