The illustrated FMLs

Today, there was a meeting at work. I had to give a presentation to my boss and the other attendants. My first subject was on how my 5 year old son got to my briefcase and replaced the contents of it with crayons and a stuffed teddy bear. FML

To me, there is very little more annoying than these stupid people who think that children doing things like this is "cute". "Awwww. He doesn't know what he's doing. He's so cuuuuute." It is NOT cute. You people think ANYTHING a baby or a puppy does is cute. It is not. You only think that because babies and puppies are inherently cute in and of themselves. You people would think it were cute if a baby were arming nuclear warhead and launching it at the White House by randomly hitting buttons on a control panel. However, the things that they do are NOT all cute and comforting. They can be very problematic. Instances such as this one may seem "cute and comforting", by this kind of crap could cost the OP his job. This is NOT cute. Things like this are why babies and small children should be kept away from ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that is too important for them to mess up until they are old enough to understand the world around them and the consequences of their actions. On a separate note, the illustrator did a REALLY good job here. The exaggeration isn't too over-the-top, the joke isn't prolonged to the point that all of the humor has dried up, he does a good job keeping to the original post, and the art is excellent. Well done, Joe Combs. Both the joke and the art belong on network television. This is just brilliant!

Wow. I take it you had some traumatic experience in recent years, maybe involving a baby and a puppy? Relax, no one really said anything like that, no need to go wall of text on their asses. You however, I will make an exception for. Way to go way out of proportion there. Naturally young kids do things that aren't 100% safe or smart, but that doesn't mean anything. They are learning, they don't have a lot of experience. When you were 5, surely you did similar things. We don't need to go and refuse life experience for these kids by keeping them away from ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they could mess up, how else are they going to learn. Granted, by 5, the kid should start to be given at least a talk after they do something wrong, but still.

Wow someone should sterilize you 162. You type just like a 5 year-old gangster wannabee would. Why don't you stop typing like some ignorant ghetto freak and grow up? I can't even believe you spelled "paragraph" right. Oh, and by the way, "TRILLON" is NOT a word. Dipshit.

Haha, people won't read it? I read it. Some points are a little over-exaggerated (sorry if that word is too big), but I do agree with how some people turn into complete morons over a something cute. Furthermore, learn to type before you try and bash someone's comment. It's quite sad how the internet has become a playground for imbeciles like you. On a side not, Trillon is NOT a word.

No, you idiot, it doesn't. I checked. "Trillon" isn't in the dictionary and searching for it on Merriam-Webster's site gives you "The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary. Click on a spelling suggestion below or try again using the search bar above." The first suggestion is "trillion" which I assume is what you searched for.

i must also agree with 153 these things arent cute when someone can potentially lose their job or get in serious trouble and if the person loses their job they might not be able to support their "cute" child for the "cute" thing that he did

^ Finally, someone with a brain. Sure, it can be cute sometimes, but in instances like this, it is NOT cute or funny. And as stated, it could cost OP his job/position/opportunities.

A trillion isn't too large to be physically counted... what about a trillion femtometres? I'm not gonna bother finding out, but I think that's still beyond microscopic. A trillion picometres is one metre. Just because it's a big number doesn't mean it's uncountable, it all depends on the units.

We think it is cute because the kid is wishing his dad good luck. If ass holes like you would listen for five minutes I'm pretty sure the OP wouldn't lose his job. I used to put teddy bears and things in my dad's bag before he left for war. That way, he had a reason to come home. It's basically a kid's way of saying don't forget about me. If kids were kept away from things at a young age then they would never learn. My own mother, a very wise lady, told me a story. My dad was showing my brothers and I about guns. He was about to let us hold them when my mom was going to intervine. My grandpa then stopped my mom and said "If you let them learn, then they will not be curious later on." Because I have learned about and fired a gun, I have no curiosity about them. I understand them. If this happened to every other kid then kids wouldn't be getting ahold of guns and accidentaly setting them off. If you keep children locked away in a box then they will never understand. They will be so blinded by hate and rage that eventually they will harm themselves or somebody else. I emphasize this dearly. Let them learn from thier own mistakes, not yours. Yet, do not foget to be an example.

They didn't, the OP was fired shortly thereafter. He came home, smothered his wife with a pillow, drowned his son in the bathtub, the hung himself in the closet.

There wasn't anything wrong with his comment, it is called freedom of speech (but does that apply to a keyboard?) Anyways, my intent wasn't to flame on you, but rather on #128. He used the proper version of "hung" (past-tense), however, he forgot to put an "n" at the end of "the". (,then hung himself.), Try saying a sentence/phrase out loud before correcting someone else. You just make yourself look, English challenged. On a side note, I feel for the OP, i guess his feeling would be of that of a college student who just finished typing up a huge paper to orally narrate to the class, press Ctrl+A then f7 (spell check) and spend 20min fixing typos, press save, go to the bathroom, come back and mindlessly hit print (the whole while my kitten was parading on my keyboard), got to class the next morning to look at my paper and realize what had happend, not have my flash drive on me to hand it to my professor, and have to recite the whole essay from memory. Not qualified for a FML because I did have a backup, (as he has the original papers at his house somewhere), but the stress it imposes is unbelievable.

I would like to point out, Mr "bmxfreakrider", that when referring to someone who has committed suicide via strangulation using the weight of his or her own body, the verb is 'hanged', not 'hung', no matter how incorrect it may sound. So there.

good thing relating to having a rope around your neck and hanging from said rope until death is ALWAYS "hanged" and NEVER "hung." my recommendation before you lecture about the past-tense of verbs is that you know what you're talking about. embarrassing for you that you even said to the other person who corrected him correctly that they should "reread the sentence". hanged.
