    I am still amazed that the Michaels and Jennifers are the most popular- heck, EVERYONE has personally known or known someone personally who has met the Jello twins!!! I can honestly say I have not- but I know I will someday, cuz I work in geriatrics, and they gotta be getting old by now!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i also had a teen mom who named her child margarita......(sad).
