You're 16, you're beautiful and you're pregnant

By now you've probably heard about the teenage girls in Massachusetts who made a pact to get pregnant.

This one certainly falls in the "what were you thinking?" category.

The story references the pregnancies of Jamie Lynn Spears as well as the Oscar-winning movie "Juno." While it cautions against blaming those influences, you have to wonder that if a.) these girls are not bright to begin with, if b.) they would see the nightly "ET" updates on Jamie Lynn or the acclaim given to Juno and say, "Hey, that looks pretty good."

The obvious followup question is: Will the commonwealth of Massachusetts end up footing the bill for the birth and upbringing of these kids? Stay tuned.
