    wow. uralldumb – dumb parenting is leaving a plastic bag out and stopping watching your kid, not putting your kid in one while holding it, taking him out, then throwing the bag into a recycling bin. it’s not a risk if you don’t make it a risk. so let me guess, you don’t have kids? a baby doesn’t just touch a bag then suffocate. it takes a lot of time, lots of choking and sputtering before any real damage is done. OH MY GOD LIGHTEN UP.

    we all know our kids are most precious. it’s only the pretentious people who need every stranger on the internet to know about it that try to tell others off for their “misdeeds”. i say, if your kid makes it happy and healthy, you done your job.

  3. @closecall… ever feel like nobodys listening? 😛

  4. @fringefail & @closecall Michael was making it all up. Heather took the bait and ran with it.

  5. I concur with these comments. Carry on.

  6. @the non thanks, I thought there was something deeper I was missing. phewph.

  7. Yes, clearly I’m just being pretentious. It has nothing to do with a true concern for children’s safety.

    It’s none of your business, but why would it matter if I was a parent or not? If one becomes a parent, does that mean they automatically know what’s best for their kids?

    No, there are plenty of dumb people who might do the same thing, and then accidentally leave the bag out (I don’t think a recycling bin is going to prevent an accident. You do). It can only helping to instigate an accident, rather than a parent’s job of helping to prevent it.

    And give me a break the Non. Im’ not talking about some fascist ban that you’re talking about; It’s about not taking unnecessary risks with a child that is too young to know what’s safe and what isn’t..

    No, it’s not that big of a deal, and I don’t know anything about your parenting skills to know if you’re actually smart enough to take care of a child, but taking such a careless attitude with your child’s well-being can be a slippery slope, and there’s absolutely no point in even doing it just for a few laughs..

  8. @ nuff: Don’t forget, you are going to need a Quality Assurance Representative. I can assure you with the massive amounts of porn that I have watched, I am more than qualified.

    Oh yea I guess those parents that leave the recycling bin where the kid can dig into it are in trouble 😛 WHY do you put words in my fingertips? I never said I thought a recycling bin would prevent an accident, and of course it’s stupid to leave a plastic bag on the floor.

    By your standards an “unnecessary risk” includes bringing home a plastic shopping bag, from anywhere, ever. uh? And of course it’s pretentious because you ardently refuse to acknowledge that this isn’t necessarily a dangerous situation. You just keep repeating “it’s for the chiiiiildren”. You can keep a child safe AND bring home plastic bags, if you aren’t a complete idiot.

    If you WERE a parent, you would know that wasting precious energy on trying to prevent anything and everything will only result in an overly-anxious, anal retentive, exhausted parent – actually lending yourself to a mentality that could result in your being LESS careful, because you’re so fucking tired. No, one needs to maintain a sense of humor *balanced* by common freaking sense: somewhere between leaving a plastic bag on the floor willy-nilly and going all militaristic on the presence of a bag in the baby’s vicinity.

    Blah. I like coming to the internets to get away from uptight twats, not argue with them. So that’s it from me. My final point – live, laugh, love, and be safe.

    ALSO – pretentious meaning: characterized by assumption of dignity or importance; making an exaggerated outward show; ostentatious…

    And you saying: but how are you going to feel if your kid ends up suffocating in another bag that accidentally got left out “for just a second”. You’d feel awful, and would only blame yourself, whether you were in the right or wrong.

    What a sensationalist way to make someone who needs to take a break from their day possibly feel like major shit. You can NOT go around saying these things to people and not expect to be called out for being a complete asshole.

  10. @commentsAtLarge

    my closest is 10 minutes away, but I too, won’t drive that far for furniture I have to self assemble.

    on a side note, a friend of mine used to work there as a receptionist. even he doesn’t recommend crapkea furniture, but will recommend a tote bag … and he seems to love their flowery and ornamental merchandise … A LOT ! >.>

  11. Really, I thought pretentious mean I was pretending… Thank you for that clarification.

    I’m not trying to make you feel like shit, but you’re the one who went on a crusade to defend people who you really have no clue if they are responsible parents or not.

    I’m not saying that you should be an anal-retentive psycho parent (like the ones who sheltered one my good friends into a junkie), but my point is that’s it’s not funny, needless, and there’s absolutely no reason to defend it, when it could only stand to cause more harm than good.

    This is not being tired or having a sense of humor… It’s actively using your child as a needless gag for you to get a couple chuckles… You might disagree that it’s wrong, but that certainly doesn’t make it right, necessary, smart, responsible, etc.

  12. Sorry, I guess I should have just said “loooooooool, they put that ther baby in a plastic bag. LMAOOOOOOOOO”

  13. Parenting, Ikea: there about the same thing. You wait a long period of time for something you invested in because it looked nice in the catalogue/magazine/commercial, but then you discover it requires a lot of assembly and in the end leaves you in the poor house and wondering what you were thinking.

  14. Dear Lamebook,

    Can you please stop allowing the submission of pics of people doing stupid but funny shit with their babies? I’m sick of the “you’re a twat cos you find it funny” “no, YOU’RE a twat cos you don’t find it funny” arguments that rage ad nauseam.

    Kthxbai,

    mwnci tal

  15. Agree 100% mwnci. I apologize to the lamebookers for having to read our lame argument… I should have just made fun of the 2 people who don’t get the last joke..

    Beware those napalm mushrooms. That’s how the Vietnam War got started.

  16. 1st picture – If you’re going to commit an act of child abuse, you might as well have the photo to prove it.

    2nd picture – Pretty stupid

    3rd picture – seems too staged.

  17. It goes without saying that to put a baby in a baggy is sheer stupidity. That’s why it’s on LameBook, no?

  18. @zaroz

    These are pretty lame pictures, man.

  19. @zaroz

    Yeah, I know.

  20. yeah don’t think the baby shit is particularly funny, which makes it pretty irrelevant whether the kid would/would not die.
    What’s the fucking point?..don’t put your baby in a bag, it’s not funny and it’s a little dangerous. Just read it a fucking story or something. You can have a laugh with kids without immersing them in plastic.

    I would totally bang both those chicks.
    But only if they asked nicely.

  21. @defectiveuser
    Sorry for the late reply, couldn’t miss my golf game with a few of the CEO’s from the porn industry. I could definitely use a Quality Assurance Representative, I expect nothing but the best for my customers and would love to send the videos to you for review. I really can’t risk the camera man getting a bad angle on the money shot for instance, so you will need to keep an eye out for things like that so I can fire their ass and hire someone more qualified. That, and who you enjoy wanking to more, that’s doubly important when watching the girls.

  22. yourinevitabledemise

    my only argument is that it’s not unsafe if you aren’t retarded. But I guess there’s no way of knowing, so yea, whatever.

  23. I just saw a baby being carried around in a plastic bag and thought ‘oh. the comment wasn’t that funny’. Lamebook’s desensitized me. It’s getting to the point where I might see somebody kicking a child in the street and start to think ‘what funny comment could I make to accompany this?’

  24. lol @britishhobo Lamebook’s desensitized us all my friend.

  25. *sigh*

    Wow, Word resorting to skanky, suggestive comments AGAIN. How predictable.

    ‘Look at me, I’m slutty tee hee, I must be really hot coz all the guys online are gagging for me.’

    You must not be getting any in real life honey, (I have a fair idea why not), to be so attention seeking on here.

  26. I don’t see any skanky or suggestive comments..
    You sure you’re on the right page, gobsmacked?

  27. PeanutButtercup

    This is just like high school. There are a couple of randoms having a random argument, some people *coughgobsmackedcough* are being offensive for no particular reason, the weird guy in the corner is talking to himself, but mostly people are just talking about sex…

  28. putting a child in a plastic bag is horrible! i am a mother of a wonderful 3 year old, fyi, and find this to be child endangerment. ya sure while the pic is being taken it’s not so bad. the parent is there if anything were to happen like the bag breaks or the baby gets some of the bag in his/her mouth…ya sounds like a pretty crappy joke huh?? why do something “funny” like this that could potentially put your child at risk?? also this baby could possibly remember the being in the bag (classical conditioning if not real remembrance as babies really have no memory) and see a bag somewhere while the parent is, for example, cooking dinner and crawl inside…5 min later the child has suffocated. why risk all this for some laughs?? also you never know when your kid is going to learn something new like walking for instance. a parent could think they have something out of harms way but suddenly the kid is walking and with his/her familiarity with plastic bags that creates ANOTHER danger..its just not intelligent! i didnt read all the comments on this bc i just got mad and signed up just so i could comment on this…but someone mentioned their friend being in a very sheltered home and it drove him to drug abuse???? thats the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. if he is an adult how about stop blaming the parents and take responsibility for your own stupidity?? blaming the parents only works if you are 12 and under. grow up people!! ughh!! and for the record i am not an over protective mother just a smart one who thinks ahead. it doesnt take a genius to realize this is just dumb.

  29. yourinevitabledemise- children have a mind of their own and ANYTHING can happen. the reason they have warning labels on stuff like this is usually bc it’s happened before. wow these people on here are freaking insane to think this is ok!! it literally makes me sick. all it takes is for a mother or father to turn their back for 5 minutes.
