What Would My Grandfather Think?

I’m not sure what I would do if my kid decided to sue me, and won… but whatever I would do I’m sure the Canadian senate wouldn’t approve.

If this doesn’t make the SNL top ten list, I don’t know what you need to do to make it…

I wish my grandfather were alive to talk to about this. He had a wonderful sense of humor and used to tell great stories about growing up in Alberta, CA and Montana. His father used to wake up the boys by slapping the headboard of the bed while saying, "Come a runnin'!" If the boys weren't up in rather short order, the entire bed got flipped and they were dumped on the floor. Friggin' child abuser! If only my grandfather had the option in the 1920's/30's of suing his parents, imagine how much better he would have turned out.

It just seems so surreal, doesn't it?

Eugene Volokh has a sarcastic post on this, too, with an interesting non-sarcastic update on how divorce requires courts to evaluate parenting decisions: Another Great Satire from The Onion
