Thought I was in the silly humour thread for a bit :)
But it is logical - I mean cold wet cloths work too.

  He's always hoping his kids will get sick so he can try new stuff?  Sounds like he don't need any kids, he needs Guinea Pigs....  Geeze....

It's got to be satire. Or The Onion or something.

+1 Deozaan.

@Tinman: I'm pretty sure the guy meant that tongue-in-cheek.

I mean the entire article is a fake. It's satire. It's not a real article. It's something from The Onion or a similar satire "news" site. Notice how it's an image, and not even a link to a real text and photo article?

No date, no links, even the URL in the "article" gives a 404 error. It's a fake.

But it is pretty humorous.  :D ;D

  But shouldn't we organize a petition or something anyway?  You know someone is going to try this and we should get actively involved BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!  My god!  The CHILDREN!!!   ;)

LOL! Perfect. I know just the place: the Whitehouse Petition pages. Let's get enough signatures that the president has to look into this...
