The What the Fuck!? Files Vol. 3 - What Some People Are Teaching Their Kids


Sargeant Jonathon Menjivar died in Iraq.

Oh, wait. No he didn't.

These are the revelations that have come out of a sad, sad episode in Texas wherein a six-year-old girl won four tickets to go see Hannah Montana by telling contest organizers her father was killed in Iraq.

"My daddy died this year in Iraq," her winning essay begins.

But there were two problems: first off, the US Department of Defense has no record of a Sgt Menjivar being killed in Iraq. Secondly, it sounds like a made-up name.

Now, one might think that, having been busted, the little girl's mother would be ready to dole out some discipline. Guess again. She was involved.

One might think she might be a little apologetic, at least in public.

Guess again.

"We did the essay and that's what we did to win," said Priscilla Ceballos, the little girl's mother. "We did whatever we could do to win."

This, apparently, is what some people are teaching their children.
