Octomom or This Bad Dad: Who's the Worst Welfare Case?

Keith MadDonaldIf you think your baby daddy doesn't do enough to help around the house or spend enough time with your kids, you may think he's a saint after you hear about this guy.

Meet Keith MacDonald. The 25-year-old British lad is expecting his ninth and tenth children ... with the ninth and tenth women he has impregnated.

That's right, he has 10 children by 10 different women.

And upstanding guy that he is, he relies on taxpayers to provide for his children.

"I never keep a job because it's too boring," he told reporters.

And when The Sun offered to pay for his vasectomy, he refused.

"I wouldn't have that done," he said. "I've been told I'm too young to have one in case I changed my mind in the future and you couldn't go back."

In more ways than one, he's kind of like the Octomom of Britain, except with a different kid count.

They both willingly -- with full knowledge -- chose to bring multiple children into the world with no preparation or plan to care for them.

They both chose their own emotions over the welfare of their children.

And now, taxpayer dollars are supporting/are going to support both of their huge broods.

The difference between the two, however, is that while both are extreme cases, he'll garner a few headlines here and there and then fade away into his selfish existence, while she has received the world's wrath and become the butt of endless jokes that have a long, long shelf life.

Let's face it, welfare mothers receive a lot more scorn for bringing too many children into the world, while many a deadbeat dad just walks away with no repercussions.

While neither is in the right, at least Nadya Suleman only made the decision to use too many fertility drugs once, while MacDonald has made his decision 10 times ... at the very least. And he seems to have no intention of stopping.

The other difference? MacDonald likely won't be offered a $500,000 porn deal. Let's hope not, at least.

Whose behavior do you think is worse -- Octomom or Keith MacDonald?
