10 Signs Youre at a Kid’s Birthday Party Thrown by Terrible Parents


(another awesome post  by Jon Taylor)

We’ve all been to bad kid birthday parties, way too much sugar or inappropriate themes, but here are 10 signs you’re at a birthday party thrown by terrible parents.

1) You’re asked to sign a liability waiver at the door

2) There’s a paramedic on standby on the corner

3) A handful of protesters are yelling from the sidewalk

4) The “Bounce House” is actually a stolen weather balloon anchored with fence staves

5) Birthday Boy’s Mom makes little effort to conceal her state mandated Ankle Bracelet monitor.

6) Underwriting Party Sponsor:  Newport Lights

7) The guy shaping balloon animals uses the occasion to teach the kids about where little balloon animals come from.

8) There’s a champagne room for the Dads

9) Party Theme: The Human ToddlerPede

10) Take-home Goodie Bags become the subject of Emergency Recall.
