Are These Onesies Fun or Offensive?

"I'm peeing"

Maybe I’m the wrong person to ask. Because I don’t even like t-shirts for adults with sayings on them. I mean, what’s the point? You want to spend the day relating the same slogan to everyone you run into? Sure, I have been on the receiving end of a few World’s Greatest Mom t-shirts, but I wear those at my own risk, for the day I don one, it’s practically guaranteed that I’m going to be caught yelling at my kids in public. But I get it, adults can make their own decisions. If they want to wear a t-shirt with a saying, I’m pretty sure the First Amendment protects their right to do so.

But what about kids? Reading this post about 50 Shades of Grey inspired onesies made me think about the onesies that are out there. To be put on innocent babies.

I know that they are supposed to be humorous, but there is something about some of these these that makes me uncomfortable. Like hey, maybe your baby shouldn’t be fodder for your off-color humor?
