If only young Indiana Jones had one...


Or if one had the young Indiana Jones...

The world is just catching up with The Onion....


My parents gave me a snake at that age. I still miss Ol' Snakey..... *sob*

Wait, it says her snake was still alive. Now I'm even MORE jealous!

My grandson had a friend he named "Spidery". One guess allowed.
However, I'd probably have issues with this.
Unless, of course, she's well insured...

Come now... Surely they can afford a trampoline or Lawn Darts.

You're going to love this one. I save it for Thanksgivings when nobody likes turkey.

Get a large snake, at least 30 pounds, as fresh as possible...

Gaston, you cannot give 6-month olds lawn darts. Their arms aren't strong enough to throw them until they are at least 3 years old.

wWat ever happened to a saucepan, a wooden spoon and a carboard box? Kids can spend hours playing with these.

My dad used to say his family was so poor when he was growing up that the only thing he ever got for Christmas was a stick. He was the youngest of 14 children and they lived on a farm. After hearing this story a few times my mom finally asked him why he didn't go out in the yard get his own stick? Why wait for Santa to bring him one. I asked one of my aunts about it and she set the record straight. As the youngest he was pretty spoiled by all of them.

Smart parents -- no need for new batteries.
