Funny for your Tuesday

SO, I’ve been blogging some pretty heavy stuff.

Orphans, Down Syndrome, Money, Ambulance Rides…and I think it’s high time we get some hilarity up in this joint again.

Except that I have no funny in me right now.

But someone else does.

I saw this blog post a month ago, and then someone else tweeted about it again, and I seriously LAUGHED OUT LOUD even the second time.

I actually copy/pasted it here (ALL credit goes to pregnant chicken).

I was gonna make you click over, but there was one photo that was not work safe and some of you probably wouldn’t have appreciated it.

So I literally copy/pasted the post in its entirety to save you from clicking over.

Don’t worry, I ran it by Amy first and she was cool with it.

So please know that I did NOT write this post.  Amy did.  And her commentary is AWESOME.

I didn’t want to have any pictures of myself pregnant but a friend told me how much she regretted not at least having one or two shots because her kids wanted to know what she looked like when she was pregnant with them, so gave in and took a couple of mug-shot style pictures of myself so it was documented.

With that in mind, you may want to capture your pregnancies in a photograph to preserve the wonder of life so I chose a few gems from for a little inspiration.

“Karen, seeing as you’re pregnant, let’s put you at the top of the family photo where the air is thinner. Karen? Karen?!?!”

I can appreciate what they were trying to do here but if your Christmas photo looks like it should have a “becka, becka, bow wow” soundtrack playing in the background, then you may want to reconsider the card.

I can’t decide whether I like the garbage bag dress, the swamp or his black socks in the water better.

“That’s it, Steve. A little further back, a little further. Now crouch down. Perfect!” I think the ex-boyfriend may have been the photographer in this one.

This reminds me of a picnic. A good idea in theory but an uncomfortable mess in practice.

Words can’t describe this photo. Oh wait a minute, they can!

Okay, part of me doesn’t have a problem with this photo but the toe shoes are the real kicker. Ha kicker!

“It’s going to be a good year, Laura. A very Goodyear indeed.”

At first I thought “Nothing symbolizes maternity better than a watermelon and a gun” and then I thought “Actually, nothing *does* symbolize maternity better than a watermelon and a gun”. Bravo Mad’am.

Like the previous Christmas card, if it looks skeezy when nobody is pregnant, then a baby bump ain’t saving it so don’t do it. A helpful holiday tip we can all tuck in our pockets.

“If I’m holding the baby then why do I still feel fat?”

Um, yeah. No. I’m just going to go with a solid no on this one.

Why do I feel like this woman was talked into this? I could see her thinking, “I’m just too tired to argue plus the kids won’t be able to take off because hockey equipment will slow them down and I’ll hold their heads. I’m sure it will look fine.”

So get out there with your cameras and document your blossoming belly, you crazy gals! Happy snappin’!

A few people have past along some other great photos and I just had to share.

First let me say that this couple probably had one of the cutest babies on the planet because they have the sweetest faces so I just love how she’s looking at him tenderly while stealing his gun. There simply aren’t enough pregnancy/gun pictures.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    That one is just wrong. So wrong. You know the one I’m talking about. A naked, pregnant mom is one thing, but a naked dad – well, I’m speechless.

    I have seen this before! So crazy. I feel as though this is sort of like a trainwreck. You hate to look at them, but what if you miss the good stuff. The ridiculous stuff in this case I guess! :)

    Two things come to my mind when I look at these. Why in the world would someone take pictures like this and then secondly HOW in the world did they end up on the internet for the world to see. People are crazy! Thanks for the laugh!!
