WOW!


I had to post this pic that I saw today in the paper. Meet the Dugger family from Rogers, Arkansas. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Dugger, who just gave birth to their 16th child.

Wonder if she had to push or if the kid just kind of...you know...fell out.

That's Rogers, Arkansas, alright! Population 17, uhhh, 18. I guess the guy is just living up to his namesake. Get it?

It's actually "Penecostal" wear, Dr.
Gotta love the mom's chick mullet!
Ok, ok. I'll give her a break. She just had her 16th kid. I do wonder who takes care of who in that house.

I heard about this story on the radio. To make the story even better, their oldest child is only 17- does that mean she has been pregnant for 17 years straight? And all the kids names begin with the letter "J." I heard the dad say, that they 'just like kids.'

Crazysox said...

I forgot to add that they have been married 18 years!

I appears that they like something else quite a bit too, if you know what I mean.

I think the parents need to aquire some hobbies that could keep them busy. It seems that after about 6 or 7 kides, there wouldn't be enough time to reproduce 10 more times. I would say that they need to get a TV, but that would just keep the kids busy and before you know into the world come 17, 18, 19...

They did a sketch on this for Letterman tonight - it was pretty funny.

I wonder if any of them are twins or triplets. Does anyone know. The little guys in red look pretty close to the same age?

Nick said...

"Their children include two sets of twins, and each child has a name beginning with the letter "J": Joshua, 17; John David, 15; Janna, 15; Jill, 14; Jessa, 12; Jinger, 11; Joseph, 10; Josiah, 9; Joy-Anna, 8; Jeremiah, 6; Jedidiah, 6; Jason, 5; James, 4; Justin, 2; Jackson Levi, 1; and now Johannah."

thank God they included that second h on johannah

Randy said...

Isn't it pretty unsanitary for them to allow their pet to hang out on mom's head while in the hospital?

Prediction: Jill will be living in Nashville under a different name (probably something like Lacrisha) within 5 years.

The One and Only Bugg said...

Why Nashville? Will she be a country music star with the last name Hooker?

jacquie said...

Well, when you live in Arkansas, and you want to "break out" you think about moving to Nashville. Especially when you parents have named all of you siblings fancy names like Johannah Jeremiah and you get "Jill". As in Jack and ...

So you say, "I'm runnin' away to Nashville. Don't try to stop me, Mama. Some day I'm gonna be a big star." Then you end up working in a thrift store as a hanger and you change your name to "Lacrisha Hooker or Stacy Slezak."

I know. I lived in Arkansas for quite a while. And Randy was born there.

Randy said...

Randy was born where?

jacquie said...

You know how parents sometimes say the wrong name? I meant Ra-Na-Nick was born there. And in looking back on my comment, I can't figure out why I ever said it. Senile!
