Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo, I’ve got another riddle for you. Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo, if you are wise, you’ll listen to me. What do you get when your God is the sun? Tanning your child like a mad woman would? What are you at endangering her? What do you think will come of that?
The answer? Criminal charges.
Patricia Krentcil’s deeply disturbing tan, while not done well, makes her look well done.
New Jersey woman, accused last month of sneaking her 5-year-old into a tanning booth, appeared a bit overcooked during an interview with CBS-TV about her legal problems.
“I love to tan,” said a crispy-looking Krentcil, 44, who was charged April 24 after her daughter arrived at school with burns.
Krentcil insisted that her daughter was never inside the booth at a Nutley, N.J., facility, and just caught an old-fashioned sunburn while gardening with the family.
“No, not at all,” she told CBS when asked if the child ever went into the booth with her. “There’s no room. I would never permit it.”
I don’t know about y’all, but I trust her. She’s got an honest face. Is honest the right word?
