Mother Busted In Child Labor Ring

New Jersey (AP)

Photos were taken of this child today who appears to be the victim of a sweat shop operation. The intensity with which he is working and the look of concentration on his face can only be attributed to the fact that his evil taskmaster is photographing him. Sources say that the child appeared to be well cared for, however, curiously enough, he is wearing the same clothes as yesterday. When questioned by our reporter as to what he was doing, he replied, "I keening." The child's mother, who was unavailable for comment because she was dusting, is a known "clean freak," who is reported to vacuum everyday and shake uncontrollably when the pillows on the couch are out of order. Human Rights Organizations are calling for action.

Oh, Laney, this is payback - now it's my turn to giggle and laugh. Thank you! How cute!

It reminds me of one of my neices, who asked for a vacuum for her third birthday. We walked through some department store at the Mall of American one day and she stopped to oogle a lovely red one... "Oohhhh, this would do a wonderful job in the living room, Gwandma!" She cooed. Her Gwandma was SO. Proud.

I, um, will admit here that I will only own couches w/ cushions and/or pillows (like on the back and arms) that are permanently affixed - b/c it makes me twitchy if they don't stay put. I threw out a great little floral throw pillow b/c it belonged on the couch, but lived on the floor. So I determined it was defunct and ditched it.

You're doing a fine job w/ that little guy - keep it up and you'll never want for a tidy home on Mother's Day when they are teens. That is good stuff!

if you ever get the itch to vaccum, and your rugs are already clean -- come over to my house! Please! I vacuum three times a week, and even that drives me crazy!
