It's A Reg'lar Epee-demic!

White Trash Wednesday

First there was Amber Rainey. Then Michele Hutchison. The latest entrant in the Self-Mutilation-For-Cash sweepstakes is Salt Lake City-area math whiz Kari Smith [another local6.com story. Those folks rock!]:

SALT LAKE CITY -- For $10,000, Kari Smith has gone ahead and had her forehead tattooed with the Web address of a gambling site. Bountiful, 30, who sold her unusual advertising space on eBay, said the money will give her 11-year-old son a private education, which she believes he needs after falling behind in school. "For the all the sacrifices everyone makes, this is a very small one," she said. "It's a small sacrifice to build a better future for my son," she said. "To everyone else, it seems like a stupid thing to do. To me, $10,000 is like $1 million. I only live once, and I'm doing it for my son," she said. [emphasis added]
If she thinks that $10K is like $1M, then it doesn't take much to figure out where her son's school problems come from. And who or what is 'Bountiful,' anyway?

OK, OK. We get picture:

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour:
