a 13-year-old dad?

Ugh. Double ugh. This has got to be one of the freakiest things I have ever seen on TV. A 13-year-old kid, who by the way does not even look like a day over 7 (see picture) recently fathered a baby with his 15-year-old girlfriend.

I'm sorry, but that's just plain sick. They're supposed to be kids (okay teens), they're not supposed to be dads or moms just yet. They're supposed to be having fun and going out with their friends or enjoying high school, whatever. But here they are faced with the responsibilities of being parents. How can a kid raise a kid?

A reporter asked them: "So how are you going to take care of the baby financially?"
His answer? "Um, what's financially?"

great, just great.
