Holy Smokes!

I recall sammyh posting about this a couple of years ago... and guess what, they're back!

CNN this morning had a report that the Duggars just had their 16th child.

Their children include two sets of twins, and each child has a name beginning with the letter "J": Joshua, 17; John David, 15; Janna, 15; Jill, 14; Jessa, 12; Jinger, 11; Joseph, 10; Josiah, 9; Joy-Anna, 8; Jeremiah, 6; Jedidiah, 6; Jason, 5; James, 4; Justin, 2; Jackson Levi, 1; and now Johannah.

All of those names are safe biblical-style names. Since Jennifer is derived from Gwenhyfar (Old French) and is also known as Guinevere, they probably weren't too enthused about mixing Arthurian legend into their biblical brood.

This Jennifer says, *pbbbt*

I don't know about you guys, but in Australia the more kids you have the more social security money you get. We have families at the school my kids attend that have 9 or 10 kids - the parents don't work, because they don't have to, they're getting that much in benefits!

yeah that is why people complain about the welfare system in the US is does the same thing. Basically it encourage poor women to have a boatload of kids and not find ways to support themselves or their family.

That is craziness! I know a family in Maryland who had 13 kids, all beginning with 'J'. Jennifer was in my class and she would amuse us by citing all their names in order and then backwards - 13 sounded like a lot, 16 sounds like complete insanity! Especially these days, things don't come cheap.

BTW, love your journal layout, Snoopy rocks! :-)

ciroccoj posted this too, so I won't comment on the article.

I just wanted to say, "Puppy and a bathtub! Eee! The cute!"
