This is How All of Us Should Be Responding to Lockdowns



  1. Peaceful non-cooperation. Simple for 2-year-olds yet to be propagandized by the powers-that-should-not-be.

  2. Maybe the parents should stop trying to force the kids to stay in bed, and be thankful they are happily entertaining themselves and not crying out for their parents.

  3. Well, if there's a camera in the room, that means there is a monitor in the parents' room. If there's a monitor in the parents' room, then the sound is on, and they can hear all of this. And no one is sleeping through that. I know, because I've had these conversations with my wife. I'd prefer no camera. But what's the point of having one if the sound isn't on?

    I assume both parents have jobs. Most parents of two year old twins do. I assume they have to wake up in the morning and try to be functional.

    I also suspect that after 2+ years of trying to put these twins to bed every night, there's not much left in the tank.

    To sum up, I wouldn't judge them. I have a rambunctious 2 yr old. She's a great sleeper though and I am lucky for that. My 5 yr old wakes up almost every night and comes in our room. And I am lucky for that too. It could be much worse.

    And yet even with all my luck, I still am a total jerk sometimes to these kids. I can only imagine how horrible I'd be with twins.

    Sometimes you just have to laugh at it all.

  4. Laugh at what? The bovine mass obedience or the ease with which all of this has taken place? Which scene is funnier to you? You must be an "essential worker". Who decided this? You?? None of this is a laughing matter, but since you find this so risible, you should at least hold off on the big belly laugh until mad max appears. Yeah, then you can really laugh at miss dystopia
    Mad max and Miss Dystopia are hookin up for real this time!
