You guys...I've been struggling with this post. Like...big time.
I'll start with this...
This is something I posted on Facebook, 5 years ago...
I can't exactly remember the text I had to go along with it, but it was something like...
"Here we go again!"
It was April Fool's Day, and I basically thought that I was the funniest human alive. Like..."YEAH!!! This is good stuff!!! I'll probably land a comical performance contract after this one."
It's NOT funny!!!
It was hurtful to SO many! Unintentional, for sure...but hurtful.
So , here I am...hour 4 of trying to type about how INCREDIBLY difficult these "hysterical" posts must be for couples that have lost a child, miscarried, struggled, or continue to struggle with infertility must be...when I have NO idea how to even BEGIN to comprehend.
All I can say is that...the way that I feel when I see these types of posts can only PALE in comparison to the 7 MILLION women that struggle with infertility daily, and can be crushing to the couples that have dealt with, or are coping with infant loss/miscarriage. According to national estimates, roughly 15 to 20 percent of all pregnancies in the United States end in miscarriage, defined as the loss of a fetus before the 20th week.
You guys, PLEASE keep this in mind when you're looking for a quick laugh...or some serious shock value. Just don't.
I've actually taken the time to compile a list of way funnier crap to post on the interwebs this April Fools' (video reactions are encouraged)...
1. The ole toothpaste in the Oreo trick. Instant laughter...and gagging.
2. Good clean fun right here...
3. Always a classic...
4. For those coffee lovers...Ketchup at the bottom, or Alka Seltzer creamer. You decide. Both equally hysterical.
5. A favorite for SURE. Who doesn't love a good, solid poop joke?
6. Yeah...this one's for Kev. He'll get it.
And last but not least...#7. Even THIS one is funnier than ANY fake pregnancy post...
