How many years of prison are appropriate for a babysitter who gave a nine-month-old baby a wine-filled sippy cup in a bid to quiet the tot down?

Eight, as it turns out, according to CBS News Crimesider. Babies, notable lightweights, don’t know the meaning of moderation—the tot in question had ramped up to a Rip Torn-esque .33 blood alcohol level by the time his grandmother arrived to pick him up.

On a related note, a classic Yahoo! Answers interaction:

“Ok [sic] to rub whiskey on teething babys [sic] gums when alcoholism runs in family?”

Answerer: Give him the bottle

Thanks, the Internet.
