    I look at it this way...if you think your kid is too young, and they don't understand the meaning, then just tell them its a name, that's all.

    *However, if your kid has watched any past episodes of the Simpsons, s/he may have already heard these names due to Bart's prank calls to Moe.*

    This story was discussed this morning on the 92KQRS morning show too, and not only did the owner of the house call in, most of the immediate neighbors did too. Several stated the news stations had to go about a mile down the road both ways to find someone who was offended. So far, 10 people out of a population of about 3,200 have bitched. That is way too many people without a sense of humor, or common sense about their kids.

    Personally, I plan on driving out there, just to see them, and maybe get pictures with the owner's permission. I think they're too funny!

    I went to elementary school with a kid named Mike Hunt. Not Michael, but Mike.

    The teachers were embarrassed; and we didn't know why until 6th grade.

    Alarmism run amok. "Protect the children! Protect the children at any cost including sacrificing everything else, severing community relationships and cutting-off my own nose to spite my neighbor!" Kyle's mom from Southpark is the perfect charicature of the alarmist parent. No thought goes into complaints like this at all. It's all just rage and indignation. And I'd imagine there's a little bit of underlying jealousy, maybe even subconscious jealousy, that they didn't think of the tombstones first.

    his parents were either very naive, or they had a cruel sense of humor (and possibly didn't like their child)...

    :thup: LMAO that is funny. Its also funny that the woman's last name is Pranke. How ironic.

    It also further proves my point from the other thread that people, like ScreamingEagle, just want to run people's lives. So a small minority of offended people can't just ignore it, they have to complain to the government to go spank these people.
