I can talk, read, and use the toilet

Sam and I drove to Forest Lake for a hockey tournament this weekend. While on the drive down, we noticed tons of billboards that had pictures of cute babies on them that said things like, "I had finger prints before I was born," and "I could smile before I was born," and "I have Down's Syndrome."

(Why would you think I was lying about this?)

Well, so what? What's with all the bragging? Why take out a billboard advertisement to tell me that?

I can talk and read and use the toilet (suck on that, babies) but I don't have enough money to advertise it on a million billboards. Those babies must be rich. (However, I am impressed with the down syndrome-baby's ability to write "I have Down Syndrome" in huge letters on a billboard.  I bet that would be hard.)

  1. That must be a pretty pro-life area with all of those billboards every 10 feet. Not that I'm not a pro-life person, but I don't feel the need to make people feel uncomfortable.

    And the down syndrome one...I was a little shocked when I first saw that. Brian and I just looked at eachother like "Did I just see what I think I just saw??" Isn't there a better way to promote adoption without using guilt?


I would love your comments.
