Thou shalt not ditch thy 3-year-old

    An "Ultra-Orthodox Jewish couple" from Israel left their 3-year-old behind when flying out of Jerusalem for a family vacation in Paris.

    But hey, they remembered the other four kids and all 18 suitcases.

    I could have gone for the Home Alone reference, but I'm too annoyed to find this one funny. I love the line at the end about police planning to question the parents after they get back home, "on suspicion of parental negligence." Suspicion!?!

    I do believe it is time these two idiots were told that it is time to stop reproducing.

    I thought for sure the thread title for this incident -- and I knew there'd be a thread! -- would have the words "Home Alone" in the title.

    I considered it, but decided to go for the religious reference instead.

    For a second, thought this was about Big Brown.

    Maybe the 3-year-old was in timeout. I wish government would stop interfering in families trying to show tough love to their toddlers.
