OK all you fish out there.  I'm about to drop a dime on Harry Sue and tell you a bit of her backstory.  You see, her mother's a conette.  Now Harry Sue is doing time with her Grandmother.  Now you might think that the woman who runs Granny's Lap Daycare is a real lovely woman but that wouldn't be further from the truth.  We're talking about a woman who gives the crumb snatchers cold medicine to keep them sleeping all day.  Not too cool.  And Harry Sue's best homey just happens to be a quadriplegic.  No, Harry Sue is doing hard time.  But she is not about to let the world take her down.
