The things kids do

Have you ever been mortified by something your kids have said or done? You probably weren't as mortified as the parents of this kid were:
The boy was part of a school group from Holly that visited the museum on Friday, officials say. They say he took a piece of Wrigley's Extra Polar Ice gum out of his mouth and stuck it on Helen Frankenthaler's "The Bay," an abstract painting from 1963.

The museum acquired the work in 1965 and says it is worth about $1.5 million.

That's a far cry from telling Aunt Millie that she's fat. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to sit for months had I pulled something dumb like that.
