'News - Parents will be able to insure unborn children..." "I'm sorry to say you were covered for birth defects and complications, but not his 'turning into an idle, slovenly twit' as you put it." 29 April, 2008
Reference Number: DCDL-0006287
Shows a couple with their son at a meeting with an insurance agent. The son wears a back-to-front baseball cap and dark glasses; his clothes are ragged and he is unshaven and clutches a skateboard. The parents want the insurance company to pay out because their son has turned into an 'idle, slovenly twit'. Refers to the fact that it is now possible to claim insurance on unborn children in case they suffer birth defects or other complications.
