MAN, that is brutal!



The crying picture in the listing puts it over the top.

Those boys will remember this when it's time to pick the nursing home.
I try to have a sense of humor about things, but I still can't help but thinking about things like this. My wife once showed me a video of some kids opening presents on Christmas morning and they unwrapped an Xbox and, of course, went nuts. Until they opened it and it was empty/filled with something stupid. I asked my wife where the Xbox was and she said it's not anywhere. I told her that when those parents get Menendez'ed, this will be why, and she agreed.

Sorry, but no. Trolling your kids can only go so far before it becomes mental abuse. Like I said, I can laugh at a lot of things (like the previous picture of the kid getting creamed by the giant ball: that's funny because it's not intentionally abusive). I hate to be the Debbie Downer bringing threads like this down, but I also hate letting things like this go unsaid.

Assuming for the moment that the reaction of the crying child is genuine and not something set up to get attention for the eBay auction (because as we all know, everything posted on the internet is 100% truthful), at the end of the day their toys are being sold because they did something wrong and destroyed the tub with them. Comparing it or having their (frankly funny and cute) picture posted to mental abuse or something that will potentially result in parricide is ridiculous. It's not something I would do, but at the same time let's not blow things completely out of proportion.
