Okay, I seriously don't see the joke here. Not with the tape CLEARLY blocking the child's nose and obstructing her breathing. Crazy psycho.

Bad judgment yes, but the tape is clearly NOT blocking the child'snose any more than any other time that they have a pacifier in their mouth. There are two pieces, each on the side attaching to the child'scheeks. This is why if you take stupid pictures you do not post them online, people freak out and don't even pay attentionn to what is going on.

I have a pretty laid back sense of humor but they went to far with the tape!

 They did go too far with the tape though, whether it was obstructing his breathing or not. Have you ever tried to rip duct tape off your skin? It hurts.

I said that it was bad judgment, I do not know why you are arguing in agreement with me. My only.point about it not covering the nose was because OP was claiming that the tape was "CLEARLY blocking the child's nose and obstructing her breathing". It wasn't.

 It just seemed like you were downplaying it and acting like it was no big deal just because it wasnt obstructing his breathing.

Has anyone actually ever put duct tape over their mouth and then taken it off? Yeah... It is unpleasant.

It's the tape.

If it wasn't for the tape, it'd be an ok joke. Lol

Used to do stuff like this all the time with mine, just no tape on the mouth...well.not till she was 5 anyways.

I also would like to add the only murder in my town, probably ever,was a foster mother who put duct tape over her fosters child's mouth because she was "whining". I see and feel a whole different thing when I see a child with duct tape on it's mouth. :(

That's horrible. Wonder if grandma is on drugs or just naturally that stupid?
