    Whoa!

    Entire Family Beats Child - Newark Star-Ledger

    East Rutherford, NJ - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a New
    Jersey courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over
    who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten
    by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, and
    in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family
    unity be maintained to the degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
    more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
    the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy
    cried out that they also beat him.

    After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
    that domestic violence was appa! rently a way of life among them, the
    judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who
    should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references
    and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary
    custody to the New York Jets football team, whom the boy firmly believes
    are not currently capable of beating anyone.

    While it was sort of funny the first time, I've literally seen this six times so far about the Jets, twice about the Lions, and once about the Saints. Also, three of the six times I've seen it about the Jets have been when it's been posted here on this board.

    I think it's even funnier that this joke gets posted at least 3 times a week, and falls back to the 2nd page before someone posts it again.

    Thanks Mo.

    Right now Mo the way things are going for the Jets, I'm finding humor in watching paint dry, no disrespect to you and your joke, of course.
