Duck tape puts babysitters out of work

Teenagers across the nation are crying fowl with the latest jobs uncreation proposal sent to Congress by Republicans. Lobbyists from hardware stores across the nation have put forth a bill, which eliminates the need for babysitters and promises to save unfit parents 10's of dollars each year.

Now that the world is safe, profits must be restored and parents must be allowed to go out on a Friday night without worrying what the babysitter might be up to.

Brooklyn police were called in to investigate a claim that some asshole was hanging from an illegal cable hookup in the Sheepshead Bay area.  After hours of trying to talk down the only nude grandchild of The Flying Wallendas, officer Angela Ramirez became frustrated and began talking dirty to Hugo Wallenda.

"Once upon a time there was this beautiful little princess who was so lonely because she hand no one to play with..."

Wallenda is now in custody pending trial for projectile farting into an officer's face.
