"You can even stab it with knifes, forks and broken bottle tops :D
"Burn resistant material means you can finally put out cigarettes on your baby"
"Space Age design means baby feels gentle rocking as heīs stuffed into fireplace"

And who's to say that the baby is happy in a dark ball? :confused:

It concerns me that people might actually think it's real and make their own BabySafe Ball though. :(

Even if that's not real I don't find this funny at all, but it may be because I work in a nursery. ;)

Nope itīs from http://www.theonion.com/content/index , theyīre making spoof news etc.

Thatīs perfectly understandable. I helped in nursery for almost two years :) *though I still found this funny :D*

I know it isn't real and maybe I am just a killjoy but I don't see it as funny at all...its actually pretty scary watching it and sickening, even knowing beforehand that it was fake.

The Onion's sense of humour is pretty dark and very non-politically correct. It's definitely not for everyone. ;)

Survival, I suggest you add "This is a joke" in very big red letters in the original post. ;)

This Thread is an Epic Fail and the Joke is Sickening, lets go to reality for a while where a Parent took a Real Baby and swing it around in the blanket while the poor thing was screaming his head off till it passed out, the Baby eventually Died and the Parents were Arrested for Murder. :ohn:

Horrible stuff like this happens every day, more importantly plenty of other horrible things happen too. We can go around thinking about them all we want but that doesnīt mean we canīt have a laugh once in a while especially since this simple joke has nothing to do with them. If you found this video really that much offensive I suggest you stay away from internet, TV or anything else since thereīs plenty of much much much worse stuff out there. Itīs a joke and you found it sickening thatīs fine with me but donīt be so overly melodramatic since every sane person knows what happens in the reality and the people who made this video surely know it too. This video is satire mixed with black humour. Parents should never even think about shaking with their babies let alone do it but we live in society where they try to sell you almost anything on TV to make your life easier... instead of people actually doing something about the problem they invent almost anything so they donīt have to do something about it... look at all the people who thought this was real. Think about it.

I'm not fond of this topic in the slightest but I'm keen to let it stay in the hopes that this would allow for a deeper meaning to be gleaned from this. At the moment I'm seeing this degenerate into a spam fest so, cut out the spam or else I'll start prescribing some anti spam medication in the form of closed thread.

its a joke, something that's been stated numerous times here.

i don't know about anyone else, but being a parent has made me 10 times more patient than i was before.

as frustrating as being a parent has been at times, i'm glad that i've never come close to taking it out on my child.

1) Itīs not real.

2) Because the was not the point of the video at all. The point was there are people out there who are capable of hurting their kids and no one does anything about that so itīs basically like encouraging them (IE in the video people will rather create a giant ball to put the baby in and sell it -because theyk now people will buy it- instead of doing something about the parents). Of course there are people who care but there are those who do not and sadly theyīre propably in majority.

Ditto.

Black humor about babies is a taboo i can't get into. It doesn't help that the baby is actually put into that ball.

Any time I see the words infant and shake together I cringe regardless of whether humor is intended or not. I find nothing funny about it nor with the video.

I agree with violentblossom; ever since I became a parent, I have become so incredibly patient. Infact, even though my baby has his 'colic' moments (usually around 10pm-3am, it varies)... never have I gotten frustrated with/at him. (Except for the first couple nights lol, but I was taught to just set him down and leave the room whilst I let my boyfriend try to handle the situation.) Though now I have become so attached to him, that I will do anything to ease his fussiness. It makes me almost want to cry knowing that there are mothers out there even thinking about shaking their infant.

I know this is a joke, but I still find it sad. :(:o

^Then why post that at all?

Anyways, since I have not yet given my 2 cents. I know that child abuse is a sad sad subject that sickens me. But knowing this is a joke and only a joke does not offend me or sicken me. Everyone is aware stuff like that happens is real life, there is nothing anyone can do. One little joke like this does nothing whatsoever, if you don't like it fine. I just don't think sitting here posting about how "awful" and "wrong" the video was is going to do anything.

I don't find the joke funny, but I can live knowing that this was only a joke and was ment to be funny. I think some of the reactions here are a little too serious. I'm not trying to sound like I think it's bad to express your opinion, I'm just saying somethings are just too little to be getting upset over.

The thing to remember is that no babies were harmed in the making of this video :o

The Onion has a very controvertial sense of humour. Portrayed by Exibit A:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ7J7UjsRqg (if you were offended by the baby one, I can guarantee you will be offended by this, so if so, dont watch it)

But its just jokes. Nobody working on that finds the actual matter of cruelty to babies/animals acceptable.

When it comes down to it, you are either entertained my such material, because you can differentiate between the harsh reality of the subject matter, and the satrical take offs, or just arent affected by the subject matter in your own life. Or you dont find it funny, because you have a different sese of humour, and/or its a bit too close to heart. Both are okay.
