Human rights for blondes

"Cooing should be a thing of the past because these are little people with the same rights as you or me."
And so a UK maternity ward has banned cooing over babies.

OTT* PC**, or not!? When I was a child with big blue eyes and blond curly hair, I would have loved re-enforcement of this kind of human rights. How annoying is it when strangers come up to you and think it is okay to touch your hair without invitation, just because you are a child?

If anyone had come up to me, when I was pregnant, and touched my pregnant stomach (another one of those human rights some people think they are entitled to breach) they would have come to regret it.

This is not a blonde joke. I'm going to make sure my blonde 3 year old knows his rights.

Hey Sparkling,

Sorry, but it seems that I have a person that is dedicated to span my site strictly because I won't erase something that I wrote on my blog. Because I won't do so, he says that he will spam whoever comes to my site and comments. I don't take kindly to threats, so I will steadfast and not take orders from anyone. The problem with that is that he has spammed your blog and I am deeply sorry about that. If you want to stop coming to my blog because of it I would fully understand, but I wish you will continue to come to my blog and make your presence knows. I enjoy your opinions and would hate the fact that I wouldn't see them any more. Again, I'm deeply sorry for my stalker/spammer and hope you continue to visit the "NappyDiatribe". Take care..

Touching, hmmm I'd say it depends how well you knew the baby/parents. I often stroke the head of a baby, and now reading your post it makes me wonder why the hell I do that lol.

A friend just showed me this neat website full of the aristocrat joke
I cant believe the quantity an quality of humerous the aristocrat joke it contains
Heres one of the jokes i found on it:
Bob brought some friends home to his apartment one night after they had been out painting the town. One friend noticed a big brass gong in Bobs bedroom and asked about it."Thats not a gong" Bob replied "thats a talking clock. Watch this!"
Bob struck the gong and sure enough a voice on the other side of the wall screamed "Hey your jerk its 3 o'clock in the morning!"
