NEW CHILDREN'S BLOG FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS WHO ARE CHILDREN AT HEART
Hot on the success of ten year-old Della Turque-Henneberg's post about her afternoon with Nancy Pelosi, the Huffington post is announcing its launch of the first blog written by children for children and adults who think like children. Called "Huffpo Kidz!," the blog will feature offspring whose hyphenated last names only hint at the sensitive political world that accurately mirrors those of their thoughtful parents. Says one insider: "The blog targets adults who would never question whether a joke about Dick Cheney dying was really written by a ten year old!" True to the nature of the Huffington Post, none of the children - all sperm/ovum adhesions of Washington insiders, celebrities, and vegan elites - will not be paid a cent for their work. As to whether this violates any child labor laws, one person close to the blog says, "You're never too young to start giving back to the community. My eight month old, for example, is already blogging about racist right-wing Christians."
New Blogs to be featured include:
"Sometimes I feel bad for our Maids," by Patches Sarandon-Robbins, age 6
"Things my Gardener Taught me," by Lorelai Frey-Peterson, age 5
"Bullies and Meanies from Hitler to Bush" an exclusive social studies project by the Brentwood Gardens second grade class. Timeline provided by Driftwood Walker-Lampley, age 6
