Daddy Issues

2008_5_8.manbaby1.jpgWe've been looking for an excuse all day to post about ManBabies, the unsettling yet hypnotic not-quite-a-meme in which intrepid photoshoppers switch the heads on photos of men holding babies. Creepy!

Anyway, we couldn't find any really good dad stories, so we're settling for a stretch: A 20-year-old Gary man ran his father down on Tuesday, saying "You're lucky I don't have my gun....You know what, I got my car, I will run you over and kill your ass." Jawaun Woods then drove into his father, Lawrence Smith, who suffered a head injury that required staples, and neck, back and leg injuries. Woods has been charged criminal recklessness and aggravated battery. [Gary Post Tribune]
