Oh, and let's not forget the newest craze: Inflicting the rest of their social networking friends lists with up-to-the-second updates on the cutest thing their little pukepod has done JUST NOW...OMG! The baby just spit up! OMG, the baby just burped/farted/dirtied a diaper! Ugh. And, they have to post poor-quality cellphone pix of EACH. EVENT. As if there has never, ever been another baby born on the planet before their kid was spawned.
I`m a Mom. My 3 sons are now young adults. But come on...I really don`t need to see my FaceSpace wall plastered with 147 new snapshots of someone else`s rugrat every day when I log in. And it`s not just one or two people doing this...it`s every single New Parent now. WHY?!?
Not to mention, how`s this going to impact JR`s life when they`re old enough to realize their bare bottom has been plastered all over the internet since Day One, along with every bath, breast-feeding session and diaper change they ever got until they turned 1 year o

I see rants like this on the internet all the time, but I have yet to meet a parent who actually behaves this way. Maybe I just hang out with really cool parents, but I kinda get the feeling that these people don't exist and child haters just want something to yell about.

Foamy's point: A lot of parents, particularly new ones, seem to lose the ability to take a joke and get predictably self-righteous about the new meaning children have given their lives.
Several commenters in this thread: This video isn`t funny and my child has given my life more meaning than your squirrel-drawing life will ever have.
Do I need to connect the dots here, people?
Foamy is deliberately over-the-top. He goes on hyperactive, overcaffeinated, misanthropic rants by design. Much of the fun is watching him get all worked up and in a tizzy. So relax. Virtually everyone understands that children are great (even, I`m sure, Foamy`s creator).
