      No, you're the only one without a sense of humor. You probably had a bad childhood. Sorry

      Frankly, I sort of did too. Nothing horrible. This would certainly be funny to the immediate family, but I don't think it needed to be shared with the rest of the world.

      Perhaps the video would be less disturbing for you if the kid was in agony from not having received any pain medicine?

      Not so much distubing as just plant idiotic. Your kid is coming out of anesthesia – just be there for them and not film it for everyones entertainment. I don't find it funny and I have a great sense of humor. When my kid got her wisdom teeth pulled it was cute, but I didn't have my camera up and ready to film. Morons.

      There are too many SICK parents in AmerCIA these days. I'm sick to my stomach to see a recovering child in this state. Will the parents be outrage if any of the hospital staff have done this and posted on the web? Heck NO! They will be suing for $Trillions in US corrupt Court system and producing crocodile tears on CNN for World sympathy. Shame on anyone who encourages this nonsense. Should this happen in my family; grannies will right at the door with frying pans and walking sticks to crack someone's brains. They will be happy to go jail for this nonsense on principles.

    Here's an idea: put the camera down and take care of your kid!! Geez. If someone went to a nursing home and filmed the elderly after anesthesia, folks would be calling for him to be arrested – but if it's a child, it's entertainment? Disgusting.

    • Mr.T about talking to him. Telling him everythings going to be okay. How about lovingly rubbing his good arm, giggling among the FAMILY and not filming it for mo's like you who thinks this stuff is just "TOO FUNNY"

      Couldnt agree more! Heard it on a local radio station and cracked up. As far as helping, looks like to me they did by taking him to the hospital!

      Are you really that stupid? I hope you're not a mother! Holding the kid's hand, letting them know it's ok, laughing with them (not AT them, video camera in hand), asking the child how he's feeling, offering him something to eat/drink (if the doc says it's ok), etc. Wow. Please never have children! You know you have to feed and bathe them too, right? Good grief. You're the perfect example of the lowest common denominator in America.
