    They are the most breedingest of all breeders with 19 kids and their own TV show to promote their amazing feat of being too god-fearin' to ever stop multiplying.

    How could you not know them?

    Sorry, CL. I just don't stop the clicker on pop TV culture. Thank you for making me feel validated with that preference.

    They dress like puritans. What a waste of flesh.

    Normally, I don't give a rat's ass about people with their own "reality" shows but for some reason these people really irritate me.

    For the people that say it's their right to mass produce I can't argue but, when you think about it, it's child abuse. I mean, who do you think is taking care of all the younger kids? It's the older ones of course. Sucks that their childhoods are being torn from them because they have to be nannies for their siblings.

    I wonder how much one on one time the kids get with their parents as well. It will be interesting to see how these kids grow up and what will become of them as adults.

    These are probably people that practice the "Quiver-Full" concept

    From Wikipedia:

    "Quiverfull is a movement among conservative evangelical Christian couples chiefly in the United States, but with some adherents in Canada,Australia, New Zealand, England and elsewhere. It promotes procreation, and sees children as a blessing from God, eschewing all forms of birth control, including natural family planning and sterilization. Adherents are known as "quiver full", "full quiver", "quiverfull-minded", or simply "QF" Christians. Some refer to the Quiverfull position as Providentialism, while other sources have referred to it as a manifestation of natalism. Currently several thousand Christians worldwide identify with this movement. It began to receive significant attention in the U.S. national press in 2004."

    FWIW, I agree with you CL.

    And think of the education costs!!! e Gads! I dated a girl once that was one of 12 kinds and she was an emotional wreck. She was a middle child of that large family and because of that she craved attention and loving. She was fun for awhile but required so much reasurrance and attention I could not give enough of with a career then.

    I can pretty much guarantee most, if not all, of them won't see education past grade 12.

    Wanna make a bet? They have their own TV show. I wouldn't worry about them too much, besides thier mental stability.

    OK, so you got me there. But they aren't the only family like that... And not all have their own TV show. :(
