Just a brief little wtf.

So yesterday, as I was halfway through my commute, (which is only like 14 minutes so I have nothing to complain about,) a bus drove by with the most ridiculous ad I've ever seen.

It had a picture of a baby on it and it said "Shaking a baby shattered lives."



Then, there was a website.

Now, I don't want to sound like a dumbass, but I believe "sbs" stands for Shaken Baby Syndrome.

There is an entire website dedicated to the prevention of it.

I'll repeat that.

Apparently, there is a group of people who need explicit instructions on how to prevent shaking a baby.

They need to be told how NOT to shake a baby.

Now, I'm not saying that it's not sad. I mean, if I had a nanny shake my kid to death, I'd be at least a little annoyed. And by annoyed I mean devastated.


The people who need to be told NOT to shake the crap out of their infant probably shouldn't be procreating in the first place.

My favorite part of the website:
Shaken Baby Syndrome is100% preventable. Prevention lies in your hands.
