The Paradox of a Possible 'Pregnancy Pact' Plot!

No time for blogging today! With aid of a quick tuxedo rental and a gratuitously gravid faux-pregnancy get-up, Germaine Gregarious and I have disguised ourselves as typical American teenage 'shotgun' newlyweds! I am sure that we will blend right in. We are off to Taxachusetts to uncover the suspicious paradox of a possible 'pregnancy pact' plot! (The mainstream media only covers the most important news stories, so we are going to the bottom of this mystery by quizzing the forgetful school superintendent. I am sure that under Ms. Gregarius' thorough and relentless inquisitive probes, the pesky pedagogical popinjay shall prove to be a pusillanimous pip-squeak!) In the meantime, you can watch this swell video! It's the 1967 theater trailer for the film, Teenage Mother. It's about a 15 year-old girl, Arlene Sue, who went "all the way" to trap the boy that she really wanted. She just wanted to get a little bit pregnant. According to the narrator, "In addition to the film, their will be a brief lecture on how to use our bodies." (Listen to the soundtrack to the trailer - It sounds like it's from an action adventure war movie!)

"...who went "all the way" to trap the boy that she really wanted. "

Wait does that work both ways?

Selma Hayek, you got me pregnant so you must make an honest man of me!

Now just to wait for a response while I select the location for our honeymoon!

This makes me sad. How can these kids be so ignorant of what it means to be a mother? It means you are no longer the mistress of your own fate. From the time you have a baby, the baby's needs should come first. Forget getting anywhere in life. And forget thinking that you're going "to trap the boy that you really want." He'll be off impregnating other foolish girls. "Shotgun weddings" are a thing of the past. You're on your own, baby.

Please don't think I'm just a stuffy old prude, Dr. Z. I just think it's a tragedy to bring babies into the world when there is no reasonable hope for them to have a decent, stable life, with a mother AND a father and a means of support.

Swinebread: Hollywood!

MWB: Sorry! Even Selma Hayek couldn't make an honest man out of you.

Madam Z: I agree with you. It's a tragedy to have a child that you cannot care for properly. The media's ridiculous treatment of the subject is abominable.
