This just in...

...high drama in the St. Louis Domestic Court (we think :-):

A seven-year old boy was at the center of a St Louis County court room drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two court recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the St Louis Rams football team, whom he firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

Boy, for being such a diehard Rams fan, you sure love to beat up on them. :P

Michael,

Yep, "ouch" says it all - especially with a 0-6 record! (But in all honesty, I heard the same joke several years ago used of the Denver Broncos...and in Bronco territory! :-)

Christina,

Well, as "a diehard Rams fan," they sure aren't giving much cause to "beat up" on anyone else! :-)

Just wait. They'll soon play the Browns. That should be some game.
