I don't usually post dairies whose titles are multiple expletives - but some things are just truly beyond the pale.  @Kagro posted this on Twitter minutes ago. I think my eyes need bleach.

(For those whom the Twitter Embed doesn't work)

Is this a joke?  Is this a pisstake?  Or is this father seriously attempting to Shame his toddler daughter into feeling bad for accidentally shooting herself in the leg with a Glock?

I understand we have gun nuts in this country - but Good GOD DAMN!  Anyone who let's a toddler - a Toddler - handle a loaded gun under any circumstances should immediately be getting a knock on the door from child services.

I mean, like damn...

I have no more words.

ok, one word, FUCK.

2:27 PM PT: Someone in comments found a claim by the video author that it is snark, which confirms my original response.  It IS a joke, a bad joke - but a joke.

4:57 PM PT: I've had a suggestion to delete the diary and I'm tempted, however - a) there's been some good discussion about some worthwhile subjects and b) claiming that it's only a joke is a great way to avoid any potential liability.  Is that claim more or less credible than the worse case scenario?  It's not like something like that hasn't occurred - @KagroX has a litany of his latest #GunFail c) perhaps this should stand as how to Not, NOT NOT make a joke about kids getting shot, whether by accident or on purpose.  

It's never funny, not even a little bit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
