Remember this bit I did a while back, where I talked about how people were going to ever more insane lengths to keep the children safe, because our kids rarely face any traditional dangers? Well, Evan Coyne Maloney has another ridiculous case in point.

Preposterous. Ten years ago, you could have suggested such a thing for a laugh, and now people are doing this with determination and a straight face.

Imagine, just imagine, what things will look like in another ten years.

    Just as an update on this story, this was probably made up – either by the daily mail or the sun (trashy right-wing british papers). So we British aren’t *that* insane.
