Toddler Hogs the Karaoke Mic & People Die -- Literally

Twisted 24

Don't you hate spoiled children? Like when one is running around the restaurant, wreaking havoc, and the parents just grin like the kid is working on the cure for cancer? Or when the kid won't give up the karaoke microphone after warbling his pee-wee version of "My Way" for the 20th time, and the parents refuse to take it away? Don't you just want to, like, grab a meat cleaver and kill some people? No? Well, this happened. In China. They take their karaoke verrrrrry seriously, my friends.

It all started when Mr. Yun, the owner of a noodle shop, decided to throw a little karaoke party. 'Cause this stuff happens in China. He invited his friends and family. One of the karaoke-ers, Mr. Yun's 4-year-old son, began hogging the microphone. And his parents totally thought it was sooooo cute.

But some other people, including the toddler's two uncles, didn't find it so charming. This isn't China's Got Talent, people! The uncles began chastizing Mr. Yun and his wife for raising a "Little Emperor," which is Mandarin for "brat."

This is where things get deadly -- and I don't mean the toddler's pitchy rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'." A fight broke out and the uncles began pushing and punching Mr. Yun. Reportedly Mr. Yun's nephew (who also worked in the shop) then ran out of the store and came back with -- a bigger microphone? No, a meat cleaver! Oy yi yi. You know this ain't gonna end well.

The nephew then proceeded to hack the two uncles to death! He's been arrested. And he did not get a turn at the mic. I keed because this is so horrific. It's karaoke! Just take the damn mic from the kid and put on some Meatloaf. WTF?!

Commenters are blaming China's culture of "spoiled children," who are raised on China's one child policy and are, shall we say, a bit indulged. Others are noting that Asia, which takes karaoke as seriously as Texas takes football, has seen other karaoke-related killings.

I'm going to guess there was more going on with this nephew than a deep desire to keep hearing the toddler warble. He sounds nutso. And perhaps the uncles could have expressed their displeasure with the tyke without attacking his father. Perhaps that last bottle of sake was a bad idea! Who knows. All sounds kara-cray-cray-oke to me.

Would you take the mic away from your karaoke obsessed toddler?

The toddler beat them to death? How did no adult stop this?!

This was written in bad taste. It's very light-hearted despite the fact that it's reporting deaths.

Well, at least they attacked the father and not the child. They all sound nuts

Yeah, I'm sorry...the last thing I'm thinking when my kids are karaoke-ing on the Wii and singing "Don't Stop Believin'" for the 80th time, is meat's called "a power cord"...use it! But I concur, the tone of this article leaves a lot to be desired...

Linzemae, no,the toddler did not beat them to death!! Reread the article. It was Mr. Yun's nephew,"who also worked in the shop." This is an unbelievable article as it is. Don't make it worse! What a sick,bizarre tragedy!

This article is trying to put a humorous spin on a tragic story, this is not funny at all.

Whoa! The kid was MR YUN'S SON! His 4 year old son, according to the above story. Which is really not even the point of the story- or the moral of, if you will. It's about the complete overreaction of human beings. A little ironic, being posted in an American based blog for moms......
