(PICS) Stuffed Animals Call Octomom's Bankruptcy in 2009

BlogHer Original Post

Octomom Nadya Suleman is back in the news, having declared bankruptcy even after posing nude in order to make money.

Dr. Phooh: Well, we're about to get serious here, Octopony. I'm not sure you realize it, but raising ponies requires something.

Octopony: Really? What's that?



Octopony: Oh, ha! That's okay. Because I have some student loans.

Dr. Phooh: Oh, well. You also need a ...

Octopony: Well, I suppose you might have a point, there. Maybe I'm just in denial because the ponies are still in the hospital, you know, but we already have a house.

Dr. Phooh: You're stacking them like cord wood in there.

Octopony: You know, I think it'll be okay.

Dr. Phooh: You can barely fit in your car now!

Dr. Phooh: Do you even understand you're going to need a 16-horse trailer just to get around? The American people need to hear you admit you've made a mistake.

Octopony: What do you want me to say? I think it'll be okay. Ahm. Heh.
