This is so ridiculous I cannot believe I was forced to watch it. The clip totally distracted me from the real issue at hand, jobs going to workers overseas. Please Mr. K never again..

Mr. Keller said...

Come on Goldfish...you chose to watch it! I thought it was funny and weird.

This video is called SATIRE. That is what the Onion does, it uses irony and sarcasm while talking about stories from around the world. Sometimes it's good to laugh about things happening in the U.S.

Goldfish is 100% correct. Other countries should start sending their babies to us!

John Connor said...

Are you serious Goldfish? I saw this news clip, and now I'm going to send my kid overseas. Only 12 cents, that's cheap!

Lucky Charms said...

I agree with Mr. Keller. That video had me giggling all day! Great satire.

Goldfish said...

Okay... I change my mind. With the economy going the way it is 12 cents a day for daycare is looking a lot better, especially for my pocketbook. Thanks John Connor.

This clip was one of the funniest clips that I have ever seen. It does make you think about how many things have been outsourced to other countries, though. Who knows, maybe outsourcing daycare will be coming in the near future, at the rate things are already being outsourced.

Although this clip is funny, it shows how many things are actually being outsourced. It makes you think about what is next to be outsourced.

So I pretty much love The Onion. This video was probably the thing that made my week a little bit more tolerable. Just one question. Why did they use Omaha??

The Professor said...

It would probably cost a lot to ship your kid overseas, especially if your kid was a bit on the overweight side. I suggest not sending them first class, its cheaper.

Hmmm, I wonder if it is worth shipping kids out of the country for daycare. Will they get back in time for dinner? OR better yet with the shipping taxes is it worth the trouble? WOW and I thought Garfield was bad for shipping Nermal off. I can now officially say I have laughed at a serious conversation, this is soooo sad its FUNNY!!!

This is totally the Onion! I love this thing, it's hilarious!!! And, Goldfish, lighten up alittle, cutie! Life is about having after all! :D

Goldfish said...

Charlie the unicorn did you just call me cutie? This is a little awkward considering I have no clue who you are! And did you read my second comment?

Lil BK said...

Come to think of it, I wonder if parents also ship teenagers in the summer. Seriously they ship little kids who can't fend for them self's so what about teenagers who get into trouble? Now what parent wouldn't do it. I believe I can think of ONE teacher who might.
