Mother kills baby for interrupting FarmVille session

A 22-year-old ex-mother from Jacksonville, Florida has pleaded guilty to shaking her three-month-old son to death because he interrupted her while she was playing FarmVille. 

The “social” game is one of Facebook’s most popular, and has been known to sink its claws into the brains of housewives around America. Alexandra V. Tobias was clearly one of the more addicted, so much so that she took offense to her own son needing his mother while she was busy pretending to pull turnips out of the ground. 

Tobias says that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to calm down, then went back to shaking him. She suggests he might have hit his head while she was doing so. Due to state guidelines, she could be in prison for 25 to 50 years. 

It never ceases to be terrifying that absolutely anybody is allowed to have a baby. We have rigorous background checks for those who want to work with kids, but you can squirt out a child for whatever reason you like and essentially treat it however you want. Kind of scary, especially with maniacs like this in the world.
