The answer to this afternoon's puzzle?..

My dear friend Yellowdog Granny wins the grand prize of 8 free embryonic transplants for correctly guessing the identity of our mystery neighbor!

No,.. its not Angelina Jolie!
..By any stretch of the imagination.

Speaking of 'stretch'..The neighborhood around Darling Daughter's homestead is all abuzz with the impending arrival of 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman,whose superpower would appear to be the ability to crank out little humans in numbers rivaling that of your average litter of German Shepherd puppies.

In true entrepreneurial spirit,Nadya has parlayed her fifteen minutes of infamy into enough hard cash to place a sizable down payment on a home worth in excess of half a million dollars,just a stone's throw from her mother's house,which is now unfortunately under foreclosure.

Oh sure,..she's unemployed,unskilled,and crazy as a shithouse rat,..but she does have the love and support of fourteen freakin' children to help her through the difficult times ahead.

Plus!,..this gives Daughter and me much to gossip about in the coming months.
..I love that stuff!

i'll pass on the kids thanks...I just had a bar of soap..
yup...i knew it had to be octopussy...
if she had given birth to those instead of ceasarian..you'd be able to slip her vagina over a rain barrel.

Wow, this morning I woke up and saw the news out there at 5 in the morning..I thought of your daughter, cuz I read this last night and blogger wouldnt let me comment.

Not only does your daughter have to deal with the news ans papparazzis, she will have 14 extra kids in the neighborhood...that is a lot of kids.

It's phrases like " crazy as a shithouse rat" that keep me coming back for more.

What I find interesting is that the whole Suleman thing has raised this debate over whether she is fit to be a mother. The only thing that got her any attention is that she had eight of them at the same time. She could have popped them out one or two at a time instead and not come to the attention of anyone. My point is there are plenty of whacked out people who shouldn't be raising kids but there really isn't anything we can do to stop them, short of creating some sort of parent competency test that you have to pass in order to procreate. Which could have its benefits but is way too slippery a slope to be traveling on.

There is something about this that scares the shit out of me...more neglected, un-loved and manipulated children...Jesus H Christ.

I do love your autograph, too, Sling!

You could always sell 'celebrity tourist maps' to wanna-be gawkers as they pass by.
"$10! Own a piece of herstory!"
It'd be a Mapquest printout with a sticker of her on it, heheh.

Yellerdawg- great..Now what am I supposed to do with all these embryos?

Citizen- No kidding!..Daughter's got neighbors with a capital 'S'.
I asked her if the older kids wuld be going to school with my grand daughters,but they have some kind of wierd system in which the schools are seperated by three grades each.
She said her youngest may go to the same school next year.

Sage- Nadya may very well break the the record for the largest number of screaming kids in Wal-Mart at one time.

Thinker- ..and that's really the rub.
I may think that it's woefully irresponsible of her,but the bottom line is that I wouldn't want anyone interfering with a person's reproductive rights.

Rosie- Thanks..Now I have this mental picture of Dr. Phil hovering over Octomom burning my corneas..Maybe they can co-author a book that will 'Change Oprah's Life'..again.

austexgrl- It is scary!..If I hear this whacko talk about how children are 'a gift from god' one more time,I think I'll puke!
If she needs to be surrounded with 'gifts' she should go max out some credit cards like a normal person,and leave kids out of it.

Billy P.- Yep..Only in America could we produce a Nadya Suleman..or a Don King for that matter.

allan- Brilliant!..I could get Montel Williams to endorse them on QVC!

One more thing, what on earth! Someone would pay "good money" as my grandmother would say..for plastic surgery so they could look like a movie star...What is wrong with AMERICA? I want to head for the woods!

austexgrl- Here's how dumb I am..It didn't occur to me that she had plastic surgery.I thought she was just trying to look like Angelina.
She's even more unbalanced than I thought.

Oh well, there goes the neighborhood...

I can't believe you're looking forward to the gossip--I myself am soooo sick of hearing about "Octomom"! *grin*
