I'm back & Sooner Joke of the Week
Sorry, I haven't been posting much lately I was on a recruitment trip for my job. I was in Niagara Falls (I'll post some pics later) and up in northern New York (north of Albany by the Canada border...another great story soon) and then visited a couple of places in the Syracuse area. I was in some pretty rural places and didn't have internet or cell service. I'll try and post some stuff about the trip tomorrow or Sunday.
But, right now here's the Sooner Joke of the Week*:
Unprecedented Child Custody Ruling
A seven year old boy was at the center of a courtroom drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.
The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody laws and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained if at all possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and refused to live with her.
The judge then suggested the young boy's grandparents as possible guardians, but the boy claimed they beat him also.
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was a common occurance in the boy's family, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should receive custody of him.
After two recesses to check references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Iowa State Cyclones, whom the judge found to be incapable of beating anyone.
Thanks Be to God and Boomer Sooner!

*Please note that I am in no way meaning to make light of physical or emotional domestic violence...which I totally abhor. This is simply a footbal joke.
