Reporters make me cry too.

What an annoying reporter.

The kids looks like Yoda.

Hysterical! Poor kid.

FWBuff said...

He acts like a remorseful reporter who inadvertently asked Obama a tough question at a press conference.

While a generalization, reporters are assholes.

EMD said...

I was wondering when you would get to this.

David said...

Creepy.

Call the cops.

What an old face on that kid!

Reminds me of the time The Blonde and I were going from Oahu to the Big Island and the TSA guys wanted to take the little light-up sneakies off a 2 year old.

The kid started to cloud up and mom had to reassure him he'd get them back.

Given the TSA's rep, that was going out on a limb.

Special interest reporters are fucking idiots. On the totem pole of television broadcasting they rank as the lowest form of life.

However, having said that, the kids face in the beginning zoom shot was screaming MEME!!!

Curious George said...

Little fucker looks like Chuckie. If I was that reporter, I'd be watching my back...

That baby was taking a poop when the reporter accosted him.

I wonder how much that reporter hates himself - rightfully so - in the rare quiet moment when he can't hold the truth at bay with noise.

Oh, you never know what's going to set a kid off. They get over it.

The thinking really hard look, though, definitely filling a diaper.

That kid is part of the 47%, and the reporter is a Mormon.

AllieOop said...

Synova, when your kids were toddlers and before becoming potty trained, did they ever go behind a chair to fill their diapers in privacy? A couple of my kids did, and if I'd go over to see what they were up to, they'd wave a little hand at me to "go way!"

Synova said...

If they did I never caught them at it. :)

"Reporters make me cry too."

You don't think reporters serve a crucial function?

"He acts like a remorseful reporter who inadvertently asked Obama a tough question at a press conference."

FAIL. There has never been a reporter who inadvertently asked Obama a tough question at a press conference...and I'm damnded if I can think of any who have done so intentionally.

Robert Cook said...

"Damned," not "damnded."

Reminds me of a short story from the 70s. A reporter is interviewing, for live TV, the mother of a murdered family. At the end of the interview, the reporter does an internal sigh, and spouts the then-mandatory disclaimer: "The emotional behavior of the person just seen has been artificially enhanced."
