Another one of those articles that seems like its straight out of The Onion.

An Arkansas couple had a baby daughter on Thursday - their 17th child and seventh girl - and the pair say they're still not ready to give it a rest.

Jennifer Danielle was born at 10.01am at a hospital in Rogers, Arkansas, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar said in an interview.

"We'd love to have more," Michelle said, referring to baby girls.

"We love the ruffles and lace."

Jennifer joins the fast-growing Duggar brood, who live in a 650sq m home in Tontitown.

All the children - whose names start with the letter J - are taught at home.

The oldest is 19 and the youngest, after Jennifer, is almost two.

"We are just so grateful to God for another gift from him," said Mr Duggar, a former state representative.

"We are just so thankful to him that everything went just very well."

Michelle Duggar said she started feeling contractions on Wednesday night and went to the hospital at 5am Thursday.

"It actually went fast," she said.

"I guess once I started progressing, it went within 30 minutes."

Mrs Duggar said that each child was so different there are times when she feels like she knows nothing about parenting.

The family has been featured on several programs on cable television's Discovery Health Network.

The next television special, the Duggar Family Album, is scheduled to air next month.

Among the "fun facts" listed on Discovery Health Network's web page devoted to the Duggars: a baby has been born in every month except June; the Duggars have gone through an estimated 90,000 nappies and Michelle has been pregnant for 126 months - or 10.5 years - of her life.

Mr Duggar, 44, is a real estate-agent who served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2002.

He was a candidate for the US Senate in 2002 but lost the ballot.

Mrs Duggar, 41, and her husband are politically conservative fundamentalist Christians.

They reportedly live debt-free.

"It actually went fast," she said.

Of course it did, that route sees more traffic than the Lincoln Tunnel. :puke:

Yeah, a couple of religious kooks who apparently don't believe in sex for pleasure.

I've seen them on TV before.

Some people need to learn that sneaking in the back door isn't always a bad thing.

Wow, Jim Bob...

"We love the ruffles and lace."

Ah, now what we have hear is a classic example of a redneck couple who are god-fearing and can't keep their legs closed or believe in protection.

I reckon.

Living debt-free is an admirable goal, but Good Lord Jim-Bob, can't you just keep it in your Dickies twill trousers for five minutes?

Hey God bless 'em, it's a free country.

I didn't read that they were on welfare so what's the beef?

There's something wierd about people having litters that big in the US....it's one thing for the poor and stupid in 3rd world countries to have huge litters, but it seems very strange in the modern world to have big litters, not to mention irresponsible (contribution to overpopulation, etc).

I wrote a paper a couple of years ago adapting ideas from A Modest Proposal to modern times. These people would have fit right into my scheme, just like Montana into the West Coast Offense.

Edit: Just to clarify, my paper was a satire, just like the original. I do not condone the eating of babies.

The only reason this bothers me, other than the obvious fact that her va-jay-jay could easily eat any one of the children she's had, is that we know the overpopulation the world is going to have not too long from now. Why would you want to add to that by having more than four or five kids, let alone seventeen?

They'll probably contribute as much to society as their parents, if not less.

All I saying is if I was LOADED, like William Gates loaded I'd have

six or seven, kids, why not? All those poor retards with the

inability to feed two mouths nevermind tripple that have a ton of

kids out of stupidity & ignorance, but if you can support that many

children and educate them then god bless.

I hated being an only child, never wanted Sofia to be an only child.

now as far as the super-religious crap, I agree with you guys.

Six or seven is less than half of what they've got. And judging by the names these people gave their kids and the fact that they are hoome skoold by these very parents, tells me they won't go on to become productive member of society. :P
