Every time my hope in humanity gets restored, even for a second, I see a plethora of dumb shit pop up on my social media feeds reminding me that, in fact, we’re doomed.
Seriously, it’s like clockwork.
And the latest addition to the dumb shit list?
A dad, who threw his one-year-old daughter a Brian Laundrie themed birthday party…
No, you’re not dreaming this. This is real life.
According to the New York Post, at this party, a life-sized skeleton could be seen laying on a table, covered different kinds of finger foods.
Not to mention, gummy worms coming out of the skeleton’s eyeballs and mouth, with Brian Laundrie written on a chalkboard right next to it.
Jack Bersch, the father who came up with the idea, posted the pictures to an Aldi Facebook Group, saying:
“We did this with Aldi food for my daughter’s first birthday.
If you don’t like it that’s fine. We all thought it was funny and I would understand if I’m no longer a part of this group tomorrow morning.”
I mean come on. This is your daughter’s FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY, and you’re gonna make it some sick joke about a murderer… who most likely killed himself as well? Dafuq is wrong with you?
Now I’m not an expert on this kind of stuff, but I gotta feeling his daughter is gonna be pissed once she gets old enough to understand all this.
Needless to say, the man got a number of mixed reviews from the post.
“Did your kid have fun? That’s all that matters! I think it’s very clever.”
“It’s funny for Halloween but I don’t think that’s a great theme for a first birthday. She might look back on that when she is older and be like wtf.”
And finally, another (perhaps with the most common sense) blasted the stunt:
“I could understand the skeleton/Halloween theme but trying to poke fun of a situation like Gabby and Brian’s is completely unacceptable.”
You be the judge…
