Jacob and Angela Boggus have run out of ideas on ways to punish their 16-year-old son for stealing from them, so they have forced him to live in a purple tent in their backyard.

"We're not doing anything wrong here," Angela Boggus said. "We're simply trying to teach our child a lesson."

"Anybody who wants to talk some sense into him is more than welcome," Jacob Boggus said. "We're not trying to hide from this."

Each day the kid is given a jug of water and has permission to leave the tent when he has to use the bathroom. However, the parents aren't complete savages and also let the 16-year-old inside each night to sleep at 9 pm. But as soon as he wakes up, it's back to the purple tent.

Members of the small town community have voiced their opinions on the unorthodox disciplinary approach and the local sheriff has even been called out to the home three times. What Jacob and Angela are doing is not illegal, says Valencia County Chief Deputy Gary Hall. "It's not like he's been banished out to the mesa a hundred miles away from civilization."

When you're a parent and your kid passes out next to you, I guess the only responsible thing left to do is laugh your ass off at them. #DadOfTheYear

All you white people who live in Brooklyn, now you know whom to thank.

This enraged guy was filmed straight up screaming and threatening the lives of a couple who pushed their stroller into him while he was out for a run. In the middle of his anti-yuppie rant, he loudly took credit for 'settling' Brooklyn for white people like them.


In an interview with The Gothamist, the man who wants to remain anonymous at least has some shame about the episode.

The man who was recently caught on video berating a couple after their stroller hit his leg has not yet watched the video of himself shouting about how he "settled" Downtown Brooklyn for other white people. "I'm not gonna watch it, I understand it's probably ugly, and I'll feel embarrassed about it," the man told Gothamist. "I can't stand to watch that stuff."

He explained his side of the events that went down when the stroller hit his leg:

"The woman is talking over her shoulder to her husband, and doesn't notice," he said. "So I said a snarky thing, which the brothers say to me when I bump into them, which is 'excuse you.' We all know that's acceptable in New York. It's a little dicky, but that's what people say."

Instead of apologizing or acknowledging the faux pas, B.A. says the woman "starts screaming at me, 'F*ck you! Who do you think you are?' Then the guy starts screaming at me, 'F*ck you,' and starts coming at me with his fists like this. Now as soon as the guy comes at me with his fists, I'm telling you, if you come at somebody with your fists, be prepared that [the other person] is going to put their fists back up."

If there is any leeway you can give this guy, it's that the supposed run-in with the stroller did leave a mark.

Still definitely not an excuse to claim ownership of bringing white people to Brooklyn.

I don't even know where to start with that.

Emily Musson and her boyfriend love taking selfies. Emily's parents love making fun of them.

Musson got in the habit of regularly uploading pictures like the following, showcasing the couples photogenic-ness.

She then shared an album of them on Facebook, because that's what Facebook's for.

Her parents immediately started trolling.

It was incredible.

Musson posted it to Twitter and it's currently sitting at almost 50,000 retweets, because people like good stuff.
