Disclaimer: Today’s contest is for people with a sense of humor that runs towards the slightly… improper. You have been warned.
You read What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Maybe you even read The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy. But what new parents really need is the shocking new book from Alice Bradley (of Finslippy) and Eden Kennedy (of Fussy): Let’s Panic About Babies! If you’re unfamiliar with these fabulous ladies, check out the Let’s Panic About Babies! site to get a little taste of their humor.
Irreverence is the name of the game here, so the winner of today’s contest is going to receive a Let’s Panic! gift basket containing the following items (please note that I didn’t put this together, but I do think it’s hilarious): An electric “back” massager, a stress ball, an anti-stress bath soak, a meditation CD, Anne Taintor shot glasses, a Subversive Cross Stitch set that reads “STOP FREAKING OUT”… and, of course, the book!
This would make a lovely gift for your favorite new mom. Or for yourself. But only if you’ll find it funny and not offensive. If you find it offensive, feel free not to enter the contest. But, uh, don’t feel the need to go the extra mile and send me hate mail, because that would be a bummer.
So! Want to win it? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, February 24th, 2011 for an entry. Winner to be determined by random number generation and strength of your baby’s laser-beam glare.
