I don't care what country you're from, you just want to punch this guy in the ballz and slap his airhead wife too. They make me embarassed to be American. We are not all like this, but alas there are more and more it seems. Blow up all the media outlets and start fresh, they feed this kind of behavior.
Wow that kid is never going to live that down.
I think my parents would have seriously killed me.
I mean, I guess exposure is exposure, but there's gotta be a limit to what people will do.
So I'm glad they're being reprimanded for this. S'about time.
I agree entirely, I just feel that again, it means the kid may have to suffer a bit, unless his folks happen to be extremely well off financially. Maybe I'm just a bit daft, but 42K is a lot to have to pay up in a go. Hopefully they at least learn from this, but I worry sometimes.
Personally, I think that strapping the parents to weather balloons for a bit might be a bit fitting, but somehow I only see that getting more news. A shame, since it would be funny to watch.
And maybe unmentioned radio controlled parachutes! Just to mess with them a bit more without actually hurting anyone in case one of 'em falls.
