To Remind You How Great Your Mom Is For Mother’s Day, Here Are 8 Of The Worst Moms In The History Of Ever
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and while everyone else is busy talking about how moms are great, blah, blah, blah, I thought I’d go in a… different direction.
Yes, while I’m sure your mother is great and the best mom ever because she knew how to make the meatloaf just the way you liked, it’s important to remember the moms who, uh, weren’t so great. These are the moms who would stab you if you complained about the meatloaf.
At the very least, these tales of woe and misery should make you appreciate your own mother even more, because whatever her flaws, at least she isn’t one of these monsters, who are truly eight of the worst mothers ever.
The young Miss Butchill gave birth to a healthy baby girl in 1780 while working as a college bed maker, whatever the hell that is, at Trinity College in England. Unfortunately, she wasn’t married and so she did the only thing she could: she flushed the baby down the toilet, where it fractured its skull and died.
Okay, so she didn’t exactly flush it, since it was more just a big hole then one of them there fancy terlets, but, still, she dumped her child into a literal shithole. Seriously, that was the child’s one and only memory of this world. Born, and then tossed into a pile of shit by dear old Mom. A heartwarming story for the holiday.
China P. Arnold
On September 8, 2008, China P. Arnold was convicted of killing her 28 day old daughter, Paris, which is sad, but it happens and it certainly isn’t enough all on its own to get her on this illustrious list. But wait! It turns out that Miss Arnold cooked her baby in a microwave. Yeah, that will do it.
Apparently, China got into an argument with the baby-daddy over whether or not he was, in fact, the baby’s daddy. In the course of said argument, she did the only reasonable thing and put the baby in the microwave and hit the juice, as one does.
Amazingly, after two minutes in the microwave, baby Paris was still alive and so she took it to the hospital (the next day, because I guess she wasn’t a shitty enough mother already) where it died, presumably in agonizing pain. The official cause of death, according to the Medical Examiner? “She was cooked.” Jesus Christ.
Diane O’Dell was found guilty of second-degree murder when the bodies of her three children were found in a storage shed. She actually had twelve children, but killed these three because they were illegitimate… and then put their corpses in storage for over a decade.
What makes this story even crazier is that she apparently traveled regularly with the baby corpses, and was only caught when she stopped paying the bills on her storage shed, which caused the landlord to open it up and make the discovery of a lifetime. Somewhere, the producers of Storage Wars are kicking themselves for not getting there first.
