Scottish parents struggling with confusing and contrary public health messages

WTF, how did this even happen?  All those millions of pounds spent on health education by the sanctimonious, and Wayne and Waynetta still don't get it, that chair just doesn't look suitable for a toddler - no straps, sides or anything?!

  1. I'd be tempted to say that even setting up and taking a photo like that could be considered a form of child abuse. But then I see it was done by the NHS, presumably as propaganda of some kind. So that's OK then.

  2. I think the logo was put there by yours truly... I can't help it, I'm bad - I'm just drawn that way.

    I'm sure they didn't light the cigarette, or feed the child Tennents (even my brother can't drink it!), just a sick sense of humour...

  3. This may look like a baby but is in fact an adult. This is what grown ups look like in some parts of Glasgow.

  4. Hahahaha - OK, fell for that one!

    To be honest, it reminded me a bit of friends I had at Uni who thought it was great fun to give LSD to their pet dog. What they thought was hilarious and funkily anti-establishment seemed to me to be self-indulgent and rather cruel.

    On the basis that you didn't set the photo up yourself (please say you didn't) but merely amended an existing image, then I think you have hit the spot. As a parody of current NHS propaganda, it's close enough to fool me. Then again, that's not very hard to do.

  5. LOL scunnert, nice to see you about - I've got to admit I burst out laughing when I saw this - a neat counterpoint to the increasingly hysterical and inconsistent health messages piled on us every day...

  6. I didn't set it up honestly, I couldn't do that - despite me being amused by the end result Richard. The bairn is actually a bonny wee thing.
