Looks like someone got their over-sized maternity panties in a twist

It’s a slow news day folks, so I apologize for posting about this non-controversy. I just mostly find the whole thing pretty ridiculous.

Apparently, Motrin posted an ad on its website. See below and judge for yourself. I see this ad as saying “hey, moms, you’re carrying some extra weight. That can cause aches and pains. Buy our product for said pains.” Apparently, “mommy bloggers” (whatever those are, but apparently they’re an angry bunch with time on their hands) interpreted the ad to be offensive? somehow. I’m not really sure how they’re offended, but dammit they are! I think some people are just too sensitive and need to focus their energies on more important things.

    I’ve seen a form of this motrin ad plastered on a bus stop I walk by, regarding how painful pushing a stroller apparently is. If only mothers would embrace heroin–then all of their, and our, problems would be solved.

    I think most of the world’s problems would be solved if more people embraced heroin.
