Epic Comments Of The Week: IHTM And Freaks In The Bedroom

I’m telling you, it’s incredibly difficult to wade through all of these comments and figure out which ones are the best – because you are all the best, not even kidding. But this week, it was glaringly obvious which comment thread took the cake, as I actually spit coffee on to my child while I was reading through it. I think it was partly karma, for getting so much joy out of using this GIF this week:

Back to the comment thread. The funniest interaction happened in the Mommyish cyber-office this week, which evolved into a post, which evolved into an epic comment thread. The story was about XOJane, and their It Happened To Me articles. Okay, we were making fun of them – but it was just too easy.

We provided a few titles, for example:

1: IHTM: My Baby Sleeps In A Drawer Because That’s Where He Was Conceived

2: IHTM: My Sister Witnessed A Non-Violent Crime And Now I Feel LIke I Can’t Talk To Her About My Period

3:IHTM:  I Got Fruit-Salad Shamed In My Work Cafeteria And Now I Have PTSD

And readers responded. Awesomely.

Moving on.

Today, Bethany compiled a truly disturbing list of weird shit people do in the bedroom, while breastfeeding. Why am I being coy about it, it was a POST ABOUT PEOPLE HAVING SEX WHILE BREASTFEEDING. NOOOOOOO.

I’m always pleased when someone can insert an appropriately placed Giselle rip. Candyvines, you are my hero this week:

I’m pretty sure this unbelievably disturbing story was born in the comment thread of another post, when someone mentioned the sex-during-breastfeeding theme popping up a lot on Babycenter. Here is the response to that:

I love it when my job is done for me;  ”lady bits were drier than a bottle of Pinot Grigio” wins everything.

    None of my awesome comments made it :(

    • Maria Guido

      Aww. Damn. There’s always next week.

    • SusannahJoy

      We just opened a bottle of Zin… Want a glass?

  • Bethany Ramos

    All of these comments KILLED me. Especially, the IHTM thread!

  • candyvines

    That gif is so upsetting. The baby is clearly too young to really appreciate the wine.
    I suppose I should thank Giselle, she really writes the jokes.

  • Amber Starr

    I can officially die a happy woman. Now please excuse me while I strut around my house like I am the shizz. :)

  • Alex Lee

    This is going on my resumé

  • Kay_Sue

    This site is the most fun to read the comments on. You are all very witty and more than a little bit funny. :D

    • Kay_Sue

      I should add, most fun to read the comments on with no rage or mockery–there are other sites that are more fun in those departments. ;)

  • EX

    These comments were awesome. I am kinda bummed that I was actually really busy at work this week and totally missed BOTH of these posts. I feel like I missed a really fun party…

    • Bethany Ramos

      We missed your contributions too!

    • EX

      Aw! That’s so nice of you to say.

  • biggerthanthesound

    Pinot Grigio is pretty fucking dry.

    • Amber Starr

      That it is, my friend.

  • KathleneKilburn
  • Jane Doh

    People do realize you don’t actually have to breastfeed during sex to reap its contraceptive benefits, right?

    • Kay_Sue

      You know, if they actually said anything to that effect, it would make more sense to me…it would still be wrong, but a little more rational in a way.
