This short news piece has everything—pit bulls, mauled infants, brawling ladies of size, bad parenting, coin slots, and lots of really bad hair. Enjoy.

Thanks to Slog tipper Jennifer.

And don't forget perilous proximity of children to second-hand smoke! I LOVE my Midwest! :-)

Kelly O needs to post more videos of this nature, what with her daily video posting and all.

Smoke helps babies grow!

Wow, this totally reminds me of home (small town Alaska, not Midwest). Oh my people, how I don't miss you.

Dan, how happy does this video make you on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being totally not happy, 10 being twice as good as the best sex you ever had)?

Not only second-hand smoke, but she practically burns her kid with the lit cigarette while brushing off his face.

The clapboard siding is a nice touch.

Excellent, all around.

does that house really have aburgular alarm, as suggested by the little yellow placard behind them?

"Brawling ladies of size" I love it.

Hey, if everyone in that video gets to eat whatever they want, so should the dog.

@9 FTW

I blame gay marriage for all of this.

Posted by thehim | July 16, 2008 5:05 PM

@9, you are my god.

How come the poor and uneducated only act this ridiculous in the US? I mean, is it just me, or is American white trash the trashiest trash on the already trashy face of this trash-tastic planet? Trashidy trash trash.

Um, just a minor point, but it doesn't have anything.

We either need the babies or the pitbull to be gay, or at least bi-curious.

#13 - I'd like to think we're a special bunch in this regard, but it just isn't so. These folks are pretty damn harmless compared to what you can find in the sticks of some countries.

Our half-wits, however, do have a better chance of ending up on the news.

Rent me.

You're kidding, right? This is what the world is coming to?

@7 -- those signs only cost a buck down at the dollar store.

Posted by Fnarf | July 16, 2008 5:49 PM

I gotta say it...If i were stuck in that house I think I might bite too:)

Posted by Julie Russell | July 16, 2008 6:06 PM

The woman telling him to turn the camera off is the hotness. That half-bleached hair looks good and stinky.

In the Third World everybody is trailer trash, we just don't bother filming them.

Posted by Sirkowski | July 16, 2008 6:30 PM


They're also much more pathetic, so it's much harder to laugh at them.

Posted by keshmeshi | July 16, 2008 6:37 PM

@22, kesh,'re talking to yourself.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | July 16, 2008 6:39 PM

Dog warden? When two pits piss on each other's food do they get sent to pit ad seg and make pit pruno?

Posted by ellen | July 16, 2008 8:21 PM

Fuck second hand smoke, some piece of shit where I work in Columbus' west side is smoking WHILE pregnant AND she already has kids.

Posted by The CHZA | July 16, 2008 8:54 PM

Wow- I heard everyone in the south was fat but this is ridiculous!

Other than the children I didn't see a single thin person.

Um..I live in Toledo. Please send donations to help me get out of here.

@ 26

Toledo is not "the South." It's in Northwest Ohio. But yes, people there are hefty too.

And this wouldn't fit Dan's "ECDAMAF" section, because those are clearly lesbian parents. CLEARLY.

In fact, I'd wager that the whole debacle on the front porch was just foreplay.

Posted by Shelby | July 17, 2008 7:55 AM

Hey, among that delicious bounty of slogtastic content, let's not forget the brief appearance of an ass crack too!

Posted by Joe M | July 17, 2008 9:03 AM

Thank you Dan, thank you! That video made my morning. Let alone the shot of her bolting in the house, losing the purse, cig, and shoe in toe, lol.

Posted by Homo Will | July 17, 2008 9:49 AM

@29 is right. Those are lesbian parents or brawling punk rock blue-collar chicks, who are NOT uncommon in Northern Ohio (Toledo being technically northwest and Cleveland being technically northeast, but about the same nonetheless) and Michigan.

I'm starting to see what Republicans mean by "liberal elitists", though. Ooh, everyone's fat! Ooh, clapboard (what exactly is wrong with clapboard? Cedar shingles are essentially clapboard, and they are expensive and nice looking, and much cooler than aluminum siding). Ooh, she's smoking near her child! (come on, guys).


Posted by Nora | July 17, 2008 10:43 AM

I think the bookshelf on the porch really ads a touch of class.
