I think it's brilliant - very funny.

Tragically our last child, Harrison, was afflicted in the same way! And many other parents I know have had the same experience. Why is this epidemic being ignored?!?!

We are optimistic that our next child, due in 8-weeks, will not have to suffer in this way.

Thanks ever so much for getting that song stuck in my head, n_o_d. (I didn't even have to click the link, it's like a Pavlovian reaction, or like losing the game.)

Eventually, I'm going to hum it out loud and then I'm so going to get fired.

Very, very funny!

(I had a very experienced health visitor in the Uk - a person who calls around a few times just to check things are okay with new mothers - who loved to chat. She said she had one mother who insisted her baby was already walking properly at five months. The health visitor said she sort of shrugged neutrally - and murmured "really? That seems terribly unlikely" - when the five-month-old walked into the room!).

Anything currently on TV that's a "comedy".
