They Could Always Suck Harder

In case you haven't seen the Time Cover yet:

I debated on whether or not to even mention it, but I've been watching "Game of Thrones" Season One on DVD.

I remember it being kind of funny reading the books because George R.R. Martin (author of "Game of Thrones") goes out of his way to describe this spoiled brat of a kid whose mom is certifiably insane and on the short track to completely nuts. He sits on the throne with his Queenly mom while casually sucking on her breasts. He even throws the occasional temper tantrum when no boobies are available.

The way George describes it makes you feel kind of disgusted and sorry for the kid at the same time. They showed it, in all of it's glory, for the HBO Series. It kind of made me feel vulgar watching it on TV. Granted, the kid in the book, I believe, is supposed to be 5 or older. I have no idea what kind of CGI was involved to pull off the act. The kid pictured above is only 3.

I don't hide the fact that I believe the government should give us more freedom to live our lives the way we want. I draw the line at children. If the government needs to protect anyone, it's the children.

The question then becomes: when does the sucking hurt? Why do you never see moms with their 3 year old girls standing up on a stool? Would that be too much? Please send your pictures here. I jest. Ew.

I really can't see any way this is good for the children. Or their mammaries. What happens when you are 13 and going through puberty and you see photo albums with pictures like the one above? Nope. No good can come of it.


  1. "The Song of Ice & Fire" was great till the last few books. As for the cover of Time...I don't see what's wrong with it. The boy is 3, not 13. A couple of decades ago when baby formula wasn't that available, especially in Asia, this wasn't that uncommon.

  2. I don't see anything wrong with the picture either. I just wouldn't want to be the kid.

    It's one thing if you can't afford to feed your kid or don't have access to formula. It's quite another just to do it "because you love him so much". When he is 13 and hanging with his friends, they'll be pointing at pictures like this and laughing.

    Or, maybe they'll be jealous. Maybe I'm a little jealous.
