Tears? Really??

I love this heartwarming story about a 5 year old that shot and killed a bear.(Unfortunately it wasn't Bear Grylls, that lying prick).


The highlight of the story is this:
Reporter: "What did you think when you found out your 5 year-old grandson killed this enormous black bear?"
Grandfather: "Tears rolled down my cheeks" (of joy for those that didn't watch it)

It's the same answer as a few other grandfathers of famous people in history...
Connecticut, 1746:
Reporter: "What did you think when you found out your 5 year-old grandson, Benedict, cheated on his first test?"
Grandfather: "Tears rolled down my cheeks"

Germany 1894:
Reporter: "What did you think when you found out your 5 year-old grandson, Adolf, killed his first Jew?"
Grandfather: "Tears rolled down my cheeks"

China 1898:
Reporter: "What did you think when you found out your 5 year-old grandson, Mao Zedong, killed his first million people?"
Grandfather: "Tears rolled down my cheeks"

Los Angeles 2010:

Reporter: "What did you think when you found out your 5 and 4 year-old grandsons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, started drinking and doing drugs?"
Grandfather: "Tears rolled down my cheeks"

Lord help those two boys. They sure don't have a lot going for them. Especially in the parental dept.

Adolf was a child living in Austria. But it is possible he had a grandfather in Germany...

C - I guess that's what happens when your historical knowledge is as bad as mine to go along with my super laziness to read where he grew up. Just did it on wiki. Good move by him to not keep his mom's name. Adolph Schicklgruber just doesn't have the same ring to it.

haha oh tim. always pushing the boundaries. i need to read that story. i wonder if it's as cool as the cat lewis who chased a bear up a tree and wouldn't let it come down.
thank you for always managing to cheer me up when my day is crap.

At first I didn't know who those two boys were, I had to google them. Now I realize that I don't care.

Chuck said...

LOL yeah, true. Also it was good of him to leave out the fact he had that smidgen of Jewish blood running through his veins.

"Heil Schicklgruber!" Yeah, just doesn't sound the same...

I like your optimism in thinking SP and JJ will still be alive in three years.

Oh great One said...
