How was this even Remotely appropriate?

Quick post, y'all. Just saw this on

"Baby Shaker" App Pulled From I-Phone Store

Yeah, it's as appalling as it sounds. Apparently it was feature briefly as an Iphone app and then yanked after people and child protection groups protested that it was offensive and dangerous. Offensive? Ya think? Here's how the site that created the app promoted it: "On a plane, on the bus, in a theater. Babies are everywhere you don't want them to be! They're always distracting you from preparing for that big presentation at work with their incessant crying. Before Baby Shaker there was nothing you could do about it.

Someone is asleep at the wheel at the Iphone store. Or appallingly insensitive. Or dangerously stupid. Or both.


  1. Speechless.

    Except to say that actually makes me sick to my stomach.

  2. Um, that's beyond even the usual level of tastelessness that one encounters in this here world. Just gross.

    I wonder if anyone actually paid money for that? The whole iPhone goldrush encourages people to just throw a bunch of weird crap out there and hope that it goes "viral." Ugh.

  3. I feel sick. How could anyone do something like this? The world is not a great place

  4. Ew. Ew. Ew. What?! How?! Who in the world?!
