New York, NY-- A new report presented to the United Nations claims that childhood is now over after only 12 months. Children seem to be growing up much faster than before. No one knows why but Global Warming is suspected.
Children are still physically the same, the only difference is their mental and emotional development. These days, it's not unusual to see babies and toddlers working at jobs, buying houses and even driving cars. Many infants drive themselves home from the hospital after they are born.
Some of the world's biggest nations are now headed by their smallest citizens. Russia recently elected a 2 year-old as their prime minister. The balding Vlad Putin cut his first tooth on the same day he was elected. Russians elected him because of his fresh face and his ability to think outside the (sand)box.
Childhood's decline seems to be accelerating. In the very near future, childhood will end before birth, and possibly even before conception.
Mitt Romney plans to court the baby vote with his selection of a running mate. The Republican challenger has named a fertilized egg as his choice for Vice President. The child should be born January 20, 2013--just in time to take the oath of office.
