Now isn't THAT a shocker!

A woman just gave birth to her 16th child. The dad's name is 'Jim Bob'.

Go figure.

what's so wrong about a father named "Jim Bob"?

Not a thing. One of our own.

Just passing by...
That is scary shit! And to think Jim Bob was a former state rep! Why?!

I don't remember what channel it was, but I saw a WHOLE show on this family. She homeschools all the kids, makes all of their clothes and all the kids have chores. They built their own house. Their WEEKLY grocery bill was like 900 dollars.

It was FASCINATING to watch and they didn't come off as idiots. They came off more like mormons to tell you the truth :)

When I saw the pictures on CNN, my first thought was Holy Rollers. The kids were conservatively dressed in the pictures, all the girls had long hair and skirts, the mother had long hair - just smacked of the Holy Rollers I grew up with in Alabama.

Hey - our weekly grocery bill is probably $150-200, but I bet they are WAY more frugal than I am when buying stuff :)

Yeah, based on their children's (at least the boys) names, I'd say they are seriously religious.

from cnn:
Joshua, 17; John David, 15; Janna, 15; Jill, 14; Jessa, 12; Jinger, 11; Joseph, 10; Josiah, 9; Joy-Anna, 8; Jeremiah, 6; Jedidiah, 6; Jason, 5; James, 4; Justin, 2; Jackson Levi, 1

And a serious J obsession! I grew up with a family that did that. The kids were Joy, Janna, Jimmy and I can't remember the fourth for the life of me.

I kinda sponsor a few kids at my friend's school. One of the kids just had his 10th sibling enter the family's 360 sq ft home. I think someone should teach the parents about birth control.

Ok, 360 square feet must be a TYPO! I can't imagine 1 person living there, much less 12. That's like the size of my living room. IKEA has bigger showroom houses :)

I know. My friends have a 324 sq ft apartment and that is a typical first apartment size for a couple and one or two kids.
