LOL! Have you all seen a TV show called Shameless? There's a British version and an American version. That sentence reminded me of it. Drunken father, no mom, six children all into various hustles to keep the lights on, food in the house, etc. Should be a tragedy, but it's hysterically funny. One of my favorite American episodes was when Dad loses his disability benefits, gets a job, then shoots himself in the hand on purpose with a nail gun so he can go back on disability.
rub my feet and bring me a bottle of whisky out the pantry so i can get smashed and neglect you!!!!
