Funny or crosses the line?

I can relate to wanting your kids to shut up and go to sleep (I've been known to put DD to bed an hour early because it's been a long day for mom), but some of this really crosses the line, IMO. I didn't think it was funny.

ETA: verb tense

  • I don't find that funny at all.

  • It does cross the line but I think that's what makes it funny.
    e.g. "Cry hole"

    I can see how it's not everyone's cup of tea. I think it's mostly for those with a darker sense of humor. Obviously it's one of those things that's inappropriate but that's kind of what makes it funny. I don't think anyone really contemplates chloroforming their child.

  • "I feel pregnant" and the dude punches his wife in the stomach?

     

    Eh.. I wasn't really laughing. The "Dreamsack" was a little creepy too. 

     

    I guess not my cup of tea. No problem.

  • Meh.  I didn't laugh, but I can see why people would find humor in it.

    I laughed then forwarded it to DH. 

    Do I need to PM my info for CPS?  LMK.

    Nah.

    I don't think anyone is offended by it. Just diff sense of humor.

    I just sent it to three of my coworkers, two of which have kids, all three laughed. Maybe there's something wrong with us?

    Nah.  I died laughing at GTFTS.  This insinuates that a mom is going to put her baby into the garbage disposal, shows a mom bagging her kids' heads, and has a husband punch his wife in the ute when she says she feels pregnant, just to name a few things.

    Lulz.  Someone AE it up and post it.  That should provide a few hours of entertainment.

  • It's inappropriate in the way that that "Blonde in the bar" video is inappropriate, but I still think overall funny.
    The punching in the stomach is more in a "Holy ***, did they just do that??" kind of way, sort of like most of the Hangover movies.

    ETA blonde in the bar link, hope it works:

    I fully admit to being broken. 

    Glad I'm not the only one with skewed humor.

    You're not. Usually I'm the only one in the room laughing at inappropriate things. Good to know I'm not alone.

    Yeah I sort of agree with you. I normally find inappropriate shiit funny...but this one, not so much at all.

    SUV and Chapski have no problem provoking them under their own s/n.

    Oh, I just thought it'd make them flip sh!t even more if they knew it was an AE.  That usually elicits some sort of drama.  Normally I'm not an instigator but I'm feeling grouchy this morning.  I hope someone does it.

  • I laughed and then I cried when I found out Nap Time wasn't a real product.

  • Oddly, enough, I don't like it. And I think lots of inappropriate things are funny.

    I don't judge anyone who laughed, though.

    This is what really crossed the line, imo. Chloroforming your kids and calling it a cry hole is kinda funny, but it's goes far beyond that.

    These parts are funny. The garbage disposal and punching pg lady in the stomach are disgusting and ruins the whole thing.

    ETA: I don't care if you find it funny. I just don't.

    It was a little much. I will admit to laughing at a few parts, but the baby in the garburator, spraying the 'baby' in the face, putting bags over the kids' heads... all too much.
