I Think I Need a Case of This Stuff!

It's "Naptime!", and I'm guessing most parents wish they had a bottle stashed around somewhere.

And it's also today's Funny Friday video, probably best described as both horrifically inappropriate and hilarious.

Have a great weekend!

    I enjoy your writings regarding obesity and food intake. I also have a great sense of humor. This is not funny, nor hilarious and it is beyond "inappropriate". A chloroform commercial, seriously? Fail.

  2. Take it with a grain of salt, Sharon. Parents and caregivers everywhere have had fleeting moments where the thought of something like "Naptime" has crossed their minds. Horrifying? Yes, and yet I couldn't stop laughing.

    Yes it's funny, but I agree that it's inappropriate. There are plenty of "good" parents who will find this funny, but there are a lot of stressed parents who might look at this & think that it's a good idea. I'm talking about women with PPD or PP Psychosis, parents who are uneducated and/or poor, who don't have the coping skills, or who don't have the money to pay a babysitter so they can get out of the insanity for a few hours. I'm talking about parents who are stretched to their limit & don't know what to do. I'm just afraid that this is going to give some parents the idea that drugging their kids is a good way to get some peace & quiet in their own homes!
    Please don't post this on a social network for the world to see.

      It seems that you have a grand misperception of "uneducated and poor". Are they all criminals because they're marginalized and under-resourced? I can tell you as a doctor that many rich people are crap parents and are equally (or more?) likely to develop PPD.
      There are great studies showing that parenting years are the least happy of a person's life. Validating the frustration you can go through and starting a dialogue is a good thing. The video is hilarious. Full stop.

    epic eye roll to the people who take this even remotely seriously. it seems the sense of humor has become an endangered thing.

    Everyone lighten up! Do you really think this video would inspire nefarious behaviour from the " uneducated and/or poor."?

    I'm sure the good doctor meant no harm by posting this video. Maybe we all need to lighten up, and have a little "Naptime".

    Yes, please lighten up. Saying that someone who is uneducated, poor, lack coping skills, etc. will take their guidance from a video that is clearly meant to be ironic/humourous is ridiculous in the extreme. It also says that people who are uneducated, poor, etc. lack the ability to recognize humour. And if someone is going to get the idea in their heads that drugging their kids is a good way to get peace and quiet...you can bet they've already thought of it--no silly video is going to suddenly "implant" that idea. Just enjoy it for what it is: a reflection of the moments of frustration surely all parents have endured.

    Love it! A refreshing antidote to the constant media spew of "parenting is endless nonstop joy and children are the center of your universe" propaganda.

    Funny up until the point where the guy punches his wife in the stomach. That I found disgusting because it was believable that it could occur. In fact it does occur on a regular basis. The other stuff was funny because it would never happen,

  11. Hilarious. I loved it. Shared it with my friend who has three kids, and she laughed nonstop too. I love the comment, "I keep her in a shoe box."

    I agree with Sharon. Not funny. And it's a little insulting that other comments insist we 'lighten up'. Not funny is not funny.

  14. I thought it was hilarious. Too bad other's seem to think their sense of humor is what the world revolves on. If you don't like it, be an adult and move on.

    Wow. Who would have thought this hilarious video would be the vehicle that brought out such appalling prejudice against the poor, people with less education, the mentally ill, men in general, parents in general....thanks for posting it, I am the proud parent of three wonderful, apparently well adjusted and successful adult children....it is hilarious because absurd as it is, any parent who is honest with themselves will admit that there have been moments......

  16. So wrong, in so many ways, but so funny!

    If laughter is the best medicine, Dr. Yoni is the tops. This is the funniest skit I've ever seen.

    I didn't find it funny AT ALL really. Maybe I'm uptight or maybe I just don't share this sense of humor. I found it quite disturbing, the guy punchig his pregnant wife in the tummy, the new parents regretting immediately having a baby and keeping it in a shoe box... Seriously disturbing. As a parent I often joke with my friends about the hardships of parenthood, but I seriously couldn't laugh at this.
