STFU Parents: Do Viral Pictures Of Babies Pooping On Their Parents Encourage Other Parents To Overshare?

5. The Revenge Taker

Oh, SNAP, Debbie (who looks old enough to be my mother in her profile picture and is probably related to Jessie). Way to state the obvious since apparently no one else is going to do so. Jessie was way too concerned with exacting revenge on her Facebook friends (“If I have to wear it, Facebook has to see it! Haha, bitches!”) than cleaning up her kid’s poop-caked butt.

Of course, it’s not the timing that’s being disputed here. Everyone knows it only takes half a second to snap a picture. It’s more the principle of the thing. If you had to get a permit to be a parent the way you do to be a driver, and the multiple choice question for how to deal with a blowout included the following answers: A) Clean up the baby as soon as it happens, B) Strip the baby, put him outside, and hope that it rains soon, or C) Take a picture, post it on Facebook, and clean up the kid sometime in-between, the answer would clearly be A). But since that permit doesn’t exist, and Facebook is a poop haven for parents, on the internet the incident goes. Where it stops, no one knows.
