Anyone who takes it a step further to steal a memorial sign and taunt a young victim’s mother is certainly not in touch with reality. More »

Mom Arrested For Super Lame April Fool's Prank

That stuff to me is totally harmless. And it usually only happens once a year. But this dumb mom in South Carolina pulled a prank that any normal adult should no better to do, when she told her daughter who lives out of state that a gunman was loose at Virginia College, where she is an employee.

Such a horrible and scary new story to wake up to and because so few details are known at this point, I will be updating this article as soon as we have more information.
