Couple has 18th child so they can field two full baseball teams

Have you heard of the Duggars? Well if you haven't, here you go. Michelle and Jim Bob (you read that correctly) already have 17 kids, and are expecting No. 18, due on Jan. 1. Why so many kids? It seems clear to us at The Big Picture that they want to be able to field two full baseball teams.

This is the kind of thing you have to do when all your 17 kids are home schooled. Not to mention all of their names start with J, so clearly they're too religious to let the kids have fun.

Of course, it will be about five years until the youngest one is old enough to play ball, and by that time the oldest will be 25 and there will probably be three or four more kids. Maybe we're wrong about baseball and they just want to play some 11 on 11 football. Mom and Dad get to coach. Of course, Mom will probably miss the game because she'll be in labor.

The only question now is, what name will they give the newest addition to the family? We're thinking if it's a boy it should be Jango, for this guy, and if it's a girl? Easy, Jessica! Those are just OUR ideas... let's hear yours in the comments. Or you could go vote for the lame ideas the Discovery Channel has.

No way those are all Jim Bob's. At least one has to have been fathered by Shawn Kemp
