To plagiarize the words of the great Kent Brockman, British journalist Pete Samson might be inclined to say, "Ladies and gentlemen, I've been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together."

The headline over today's piece in The Sun newspaper also reveals Samson's grueling assignment: "I Babysat for Octomum." Yanks, of course, know her as "Octomom," or La Habra single mother of 14 Nadya Suleman.

Samson reports that he was invited to spend a day with the Octomom brood, but what he didn't know until he arrived was their nanny had called in sick--"leaving me on the front line looking after her army of kids."

Here's one, Pete, lemme go find the other 13.
He admits to having been skeptical going in that motherhood is the hardest job in the world. He isn't any longer. Among the horrors he dealt with were walls soaked in red crayon, "deafening screams" echoing around the house, rugrats rolling over a floor covered in the remains of their lunches--and a "frazzled mum" frantically running around like a chicken with her head cut off.

The journo got something out of Octomom I had not read before: contriteness. She concedes it was a mistake to get shot up with sperm, take fertility drugs and carry eight children to term when she already had six hungry mouths to feed.

"It was a stupid, immature choice I made," Suleman reportedly told Samson, who was also informed of a reversal from a previous statement she made on daytime television about possibly adding to her baby battalion.

"I will never have any more," she reportedly said, adding later that she is happy living a celibate life. "God help me, no. I have no interest in babies. If I am out and hear a baby crying I feel physically sick."

Imagine your neighbors.
