Teenage Hooligan Run Amok

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," parenting with the big, broad, flexible outlook since 1989!

No wonder it's such a zoo around here.

Honestly. What can you say about teenagers? You try to raise them right. You try to set a good example for them. And what do they do? When you aren't looking, they pinch your theatrical-grade buzzard costume and make a video!

Not only do they make a video, they film it in big sister's bedroom ... off limits, of course.

Why, readers. Why? Why has my daughter The Spare turned out to be such a hellcat? Was it something I did?

Evidence of the crime, below.

Presumably all will be forgiven when she collects her Academy Award... this is how stars are born!

Tell her that Clara was genuinely alarmed by the scream. It was just that good!

Hilarious! And for a teenage prank, well done. Did like how the scream cuts out and come back every time Vulture is viewed.

I suppose creating another mythos for the Sacred Costume cant' be all a bad thing, can it?!
