    Pretty cool ad, I think. Jim


    DES MOINES, Iowa - Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the "meanest mom on the planet." After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone — by placing an ad in the local newspaper.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet

    A Des Moines tv station had that story on the 6:00 news tonite. The Mom said that she had over 80 phone calls congratulating her for her actions.

    Good going Mom!

    I remember when a used car dealer put the price of a car on the windshield something like this:

    FOR SALE,,, 1800 BANANAS

    When someone came in with the 1800 bananas, he refused to take them for the car. A judge later said he had to sell the car for the advertised amount and type of payment.

    If I recall correctly, everyone had a good laugh afterward.

    Saw the story on World News last night. Better yet, so did my almost 16 year old son - he got the message!
