Ok

It's totally off topic. Mods remove at your will

But seriously........this is beyond belief

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/431...court-told.html

Pocock, 24, was arrested after a concerned friend filmed the toddler puffing on a cigarette in front of his mother and sent the footage to social services.

The court heard that the boy, who cannot be named, "looked like he had been smoking for many years" by the way he inhaled without discomfort.

:lol::lol::lol:

I'm gagging on my Golden Virginia as I write.

I waana BRAAAAAAARRNNNNN BABY

Prosecutor Jonathan Rees said Pocock's friend, Natasha Dudley, 25, was visiting the family home in Merthyr Vale, south Wales, when she found the youngster hiding under a bed, smoking a cigarette.

She then took the boy downstairs, at which point he took a cigarette butt from an ashtray, lit it, and began smoking it in front of Pocock.

Miss Dudley was so astonished that she decided to capture the scene on her mobile phone camera.

Mr Rees said: "The video demonstrates the boy placing a cigarette into his mouth, lighting it with a lighter and sucking, drawing smoke clearly into the lungs and he seems to do it with some accomplishment.

"It doesn't cause him any discomfort. He is sat on a chair close to the mother, who is talking on the phone. It is clear that the boy, at the age of three, knows what to do with a lighter and cigarette."

As I said in my own post, which has slipped off the first page like that priest in the beginning of The Mission going over the waterfall.

"At least it keeps him out of the pub." Eh? Eh?

Is it genuine? If it is, is it from one our EU cousin's countries? In which case it may be quite old. It dries out, even in storage, eventually.

Something about this story doesn't seem quite right. Surely the mother's friend would have said something to her? Not film it all on her mobile.

I find it hard to understand how the judge could come to conclusion that he had been smoking for 'many years', he's only three now.

Kids frequently copy exactly what adults do. I wonder if this isn't over zealous social services jumping on a distracted mother and a toddler doing what toddlers do, usually in hiding places like under the bed.

Yep, my first thought was of poor little Frogmella.

I remember Wayne Slob being asked in a spoof interview what his philosophy of life was....

He replied "I stink therefore I am"
