What a convoluted way to get free stuff.

KVIA-TV and CNN report that Rachel Langford of St. Louis gave birth to a baby who's going to have to listen to this story a million times growing up. See, the kid was born on 7/11 at 7:11 PM and weighed, yep, you guessed it, 7 pounds 11 ounces.

The only thing that could have made it better is if she was born at a 7-Eleven. (Then again, maybe not. Have you seen how much diapers are at 7-Eleven? Yikes!)

Langford is the superstitious type, telling CNN she kept seeing the numbers 7 and 11 throughout her pregnancy. Hey, maybe there's something to it, given what happened.

Langford reportedly said she's planning to tell the folks at 7-Eleven about the coincidence. I don't blame her. They'll probably want to put the kid in some commercials or something, and free Slurpees would be great consolation for forever being known as the "7-Eleven Kid".

Of course, if she ever moves to Europe no one will know what the big deal is.
