Wasn't there a novel about a boy that was kidnapped and was so annoying and bratty the kidnappers finally gave up and let the boy go? I can't remember the name of the book but it was kinda funny.

Hmmm never heard of it but thats highly possible lol

The Ransom of Red Chief. Great short story.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Yes! That's the one. Here's a short synopsis from Wikipedia....

"Styling himself Red Chief, the brat proceeds to drive his captors to distraction with his unrelenting chatter, malicious pranks, and demands that they play wearying games with him. Desperate to be rid of the little terror, the kidnappers lower the ransom. The father, who knows his son well and realizes how intolerable he will be to his captors and how desirous they will soon be to rid themselves of the delinquent, rejects their demand and offers to take the boy off their hands only if they will pay him."

Apparently gospel songs work too. It's an old O Henry short story.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Lol never thought i'd hear anyone here say that

I didn't think I'd ever say it either. Tongue

I suppose the kid probably could have done the same thing by repeatedly singing Row Row Row Your Boat or some other song. Anything too many times can get on your nerves.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

If I were the kidnapper and he were to start singing songs by Journey or White Snake or Scorpions, I would have let him go and turned myself in lol

Haha me too! I don't know who to feel sorry for, the kid, or the kidnapper.

RE: 10-year old gets released y kidnapper after singing Gospel music.
Am I the only one who's first thought was "Hasn't that idiot ever heard of duct tape?"

Now, despite my dislike of children, I'd never condone kidnapping, but seriously... That kid is tiny and a few feet of duct tape would have rendered him immobile and unable to make anything more than some muffled whines...

I suppose not much can be said for the intelligence and thoughtfulness of someone who's kidnapping plans involve driving around for 3 hours, but how much intelligence does it take to find a way to shut up a 10 year old?

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Well at least now I know who to talk to if I ever need kidnapping advice.

A few handy hints for you:

"Chloroform: Putting the "nap" back in kidnapping."

"Silence is golden, Duct tape is silver."
