Whoa, Momma!

Is this dad funny or mean?



The Yahoo Shine editor is calling this the funniest Facebook status ever.  But some are saying the dad went a tad too far. What do you say?

The story goes that a dad came upon his son Chris's Facebook profile when the teenager forgot to log off, and this is what he posted:

"To all of Chris' friends: This is his father. My son carelessly left his account logged in so I decided to snoop around. Upon reading my son's personal information, I would like to clear a few things up. My son is not a "gangsta," he will not "beat a ho's ass" and he will most certainly not "roll a fatty wit his boyz." So for all of those who think he is some hard ass thug, think again...he is Chris _____[redacted], a 15 year old kid that was afraid of the dark untill he was 12 and cried at the end of Marley and Me."

I certainly think all parents should make a habit of checking their kids' online accounts and having full access to passwords. Kids have got to be taught that anything on Facebook might as well be on a billboard. But what do say about the rest of the post:  too funny or too mean?
