Sure, babies are cute, but when they have a conniption fit with no built-in off-switch, we may have regrettable imaginations about how to silence them.


So when a meme surfaces featuring babies being compromised (safely), it can be borderline satisfying.

So here's a dose of schadenfreude for you heartless reprobates.

Unless you're a parent, you probably have no idea how a baby is X-rayed.

Ready?

This is how to keep a baby still during what can be a very tedious process.

Rest assured, the infant being contained is still able to breathe thanks to an opening in the cylindrical tube they're shoved into. And their legs have not been removed either.

Here's a better view of those photos.

Few parents had an unfortunate experience and didn't find Twitter's amusement over the photos particularly funny.



Their concern is that the experience is potentially frightening for the child.

However, most of the photos willingly posted by parents on social media present their tykes looking more annoyed than traumatized.



Obviously, the capsules reminiscent of a sci-fi experiment were crafted to keep the babies from squirming, as they often do.

They're called Pigg-O-stat pediatric X-ray immobilization devices and are designed to help radiologists take accurate X-rays and to protect the babies from exposure to the harmful radiation.

One radiologist had to make do with the resources available to devise her own Pigg-O-stat to keep a baby still during an X-ray.


It does look super uncomfortable.




Cue the memes!





An Augustus Gloop reference from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was inevitable. Fortunately, glutttonous children are not punished by being sucked into a tube in real life.


Let this tyke speak for heself.

Regardless if you thought it was funny or mean-spirited, we still couldn't contain ourselves.

Now if they develop ones for adults and MRIs...

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.

Children Of 'Let Me Talk To The Manager' Parents Share Their Embarrassing Experiences

Parents aren’t doing their job if they’re not embarrassing their kids. However, there are different levels of embarrassment.

It’s bad enough when your parents go around telling humiliating stories about your childhood or insist on hanging out with you and your friends. It’s also pretty bad when your parents are overprotective and either won’t let you do anything fun or force you to keep in constant contact.

However, one of the most embarrassing things your parents can do is ask to talk to a manager when they’re not satisfied with their service.

It’s one thing if the experience is actually a bad one, but when your parents or other relatives make a stink about a simple mistake, you tend to wish the ground would open up and swallow you.

I know I did every time my dad yelled at a manager so scarily that they couldn’t form coherent sentences anymore!

I once worked for a chain restaurant that prided themselves on quality.

Everything was fresh and nothing was microwaved.

You could taste the difference.

Then as the years went by, cut a corner here, microwave a manicotti there.

From what I hear now, the tomato sauce comes pre-packaged when it was made fresh with ripe tomatoes daily.

Everything in service eventually falters at the altar of saving a dollar.

Yet the prices never go down.

Quality degrade, money vanish.

Kidnappers, neighborhood murders, robbers in the dark...

Yes, growing up in NYC was a load of fun.

But I'm not an anomaly.

It's why we turn back quickly when the wind picks up the leaves.

Is there something in the shadows?

Things are going to spook us and make a dark impact on our lives.

It's just a fact.
