I am a >2 year TF'er and that headline is in the top 10.
If any one cares about the opinion of a TF'er that is :)

I'm guessing Mommy was texting and didn't notice her precious little snowflake had his grubby hands all over the FLOOR until he started screaming about his sudden absence o' digit.

Oh, subby...you're what Fark is all about.

Fail? This reads like win to me.

+1 subby, you won.

That'll do, subby. That'll do.

You were clearly robbed.

I was too busy looking for the Mallrats reference in there to notice the obvious joke. Well done.

Phil came in and strummed out this headline, yeah? And I said, "That's a #1 headline."

Well done, it's a shame this quality headline didn't go green. Must be some important Kardashian stories and Cracked lists taking precedent.

No problem. Man are there a lot of crappy greens in the queue right now... I see you're up another 5 thumbs, so that's inspiring. Good luck and we're all counting on you!

+1 for your login, you're like, a green machine so you don't need it for the headline.

WTG, modmins. Triple the votes of 2nd place as of this post; still redlit. WTF is link voting for if not to reverse good, missed headlines?

No, it's real -- but it's on three pages and there's a five-minute unblockable Flash interstitial between page 2 and 3

Some parents just don't pay attention. Saw a mom not pay attention to her toddler on an escalator at Detroit Metro Airport. Kid then fell, right into the angle where the steps meet the side, and she didn't seem to react that fast (as I was yelling "PICK HIM UP NOW!"). Kid was uninjured, by luck alone; she was just completely clueless about the danger.

That's the joke?

Escalator = steps?
 
2011-02-03 11:54:42 PM  
Listen, not a year goes by, not a year, that I don't hear about some escalator accident involving some bastard kid which could have easily been avoided had some parent - I don't care which one - but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator.

great headline
 
2011-02-04 12:01:07 AM  
I hate escalators! I couldn't ride one without spending at least 20 seconds worth of hesitation before getting on one until I was like 16... since then it only takes me 2 seconds of hesitation to get on one.
When I was 4 I got my hand stuck in a bowling alley ball return belt... I was letting my hand glide across top of it and the next thing I knew my hand was stuck in the machine. I can defiantly see how the kid got it stuck in an escalator.
