First of all, a dead baby is not funny in anyway.

I have had more than one person tell me off color jokes about a dead baby since I had Dominic. One being my SISTER, someone who HELD and CRIED over my baby boy.

Do people really think that is funny? Do people really think that I (out of all people) would think it was funny? And then ask me what is wrong when I turn around and walk away so I don't knock them the f*** out?

People that know me know I am a straight up B****. I am nice, but I don't let things escape past me. Do you really expect me not to be nasty after saying something like that to me?

Thanks for letting me vent.

Yeah, dead baby jokes are as bad as Holocaust jokes. Or Rwandan genocide jokes. Or rape jokes.

Why do people tell these jokes?

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

I haven't ever heard a dead baby joke, but I've heard all the others that Rebecca mentioned and I think they're all sick. People finding humor in another person's pain ISN'T FUNNY!

I'm sorry LeAnn.

Wha???? Not funny. I mean... maybe I'll find something amusing in my own circumstance, but that's up to ME, not them! I'm so sorry you're dealing with this!
