Gotta Watch: Parliamentary brawls; toddler in toy machine

Parliament gone wild – If you think American politics get hairy, you might think again after watching this video. The latest incident of international parliamentary shenanigans in South Korea spurred this video that takes a look at some of the most raucous brawls in political history.

Toddler fulfills fantasy of living amongst toys – There are countless stories that begin with the phrase, "I just took my eyes off of her for a second," but few end as oddly as this one. A Pennsylvania girl becomes a true to life "Toy Story" when she climbs inside of a claw machine at a local mall. Thankfully firefighters arrived before anyone tried their hand at winning her.

      Such fights in the South are what keep Kim Jong Il pretty worried about free speech in the North.... he just couldn't win those kind of fights! He knows he's too weak to handle punches! He's just a loser. Man up, and fight with fists babe!

    Ok this story is old news because this has been happening since those claw machines have been installed in just about every grocery store and mall.
    I think at this point these things are staged to get on the news.

      I agree....I think the company needs to do something to make it impossible for a child to get into them and parents need to watch a bit closer

    Hey maybe if they did that kind of fighting in the US they may get something accomplished in the end.

      It used to happen; those walking sticks weren't all for looks! Preston Brooks beat the crap out of Charles Sumner in the 1800s on the Senate floor, someone was stabbed and died in the Arkansas House of Representatives, and there was a fistfight in the Senate in 1902.

      Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

  4. Like that

    if our congress and senate acted this way, we'd know they're serious instead of conning us as they are.

    A 2 year old still had a pacifier? What the hell is wrong with the parents!

      Nothing. She's still a baby, and if it brings her comfort why the hell do you care?

      Agreed. Another example of someone who thinks parenting should happen at her convenience only. There is absolutely no good reason for a toddler of 2 to be roaming unrestrained in a mall food court at night. The lady was lucky it wasn't a kidnapping.

      A pacifier at 2 is absurd. This is not a "baby." Pacifiers need to be ditched at 3 or 4 months.
