Bad Mommy

You know those little mini-billboards that face you from the end of your shopping cart, alerting you to some new thing from Nabisco or P&G? I hate those things. The ones I like are the graphical PSAs with no words and simple instructions, like this one.

The message here is "Don't be a bad mommy. Your child should not be allowed to dance inside the shopping cart while you wander off, looking like a woman who really resents that deadbeat who got you pregnant three years ago, as you wave off the screaming reminder of your ill-advised night of passion, who wants some sugary goodness from General Mills that he saw on the Cartoon Network, which acts as your all-day babysitter."

  • Yeah. Don’t jump in the cart. Take Jimmy to Home Depot instead where daddy lets him ride the fucking forklift and crash into my shin with that STUPID FUCKING NASCAR-shaped kid cart.

  • If you need to be reminded to not walk away from your child, you should be sterilized so you can't have any more

  • You guys get that much from this picture? I'm getting "avoid this life" or "Turn your back on screaming toddler in cart."

    Sterilization is a little harsh. For some people, babies are the only way they can contribute to the world.

    That's it. That's what they do.
