While I approve of this particular charity, the name is... sorta unnerving.

Yeah, I mean, wouldn't high school girls dating an infant be completely inappropriate? Like, Chris Hansen gets involved inappropriate?

I read that as "porn dresses" for some reason. Was confused.
 
2013-02-04 01:02:28 PM
Was Jake a cross dresser?

What am I missing?

I understand coping with loss can be difficult, but this is a little creepy.
 
2013-02-04 01:04:07 PM
I think I saw that movie.

Isn't that the one where one of the conditions of the free prom dress is that you have to take Jake to the prom? He's in a bottle, except, of course, when some joker unscrews the lid and Jake the Kid runs amuck with an ice pick, killing dozens of teenagers and weird chaperons and teachers.

Inspired by a true story, I hear.

And if your prom date tells you about the dress she got from a charity centered around a dead baby, you can pretty much kiss those chances of getting any buh-bye.

Imagine if her date's name actually is Jake.

A bit unconventional but what the hell.  It beats the broad drowning herself in booze.
 
2013-02-04 01:07:59 PM
What a great way to turn a personal tragedy into something positive! No snark from me, I think this is wonderful.
 
2013-02-04 01:08:22 PM
Dresses for Jake's Dates would also be a good name for a band. In fact, I think they were the band that played at the Prom in the movie, My Little Prom Date.

Then again, maybe I'm just imagining it. As readers of Fark.com threads know by now, I am constantly roiling with alternative realities, books, movies, dialogues, cartoons, theories, etc.

My mind to me a kingdom is. It's like the Tardis in there, only messier.

Nope, you tell her you were sent by God or that you're an angel on a mission to bring "Jake" back no matter how many times and sexual positions you two will have to perform to make it happen while video taping it for proof.  And the anal sex is just to stretch out her muscles.

The girls can get the dresses, but they have to come over to the lady's house and look into the jake jar and thank him. The rest of the visit is uneventful, but no matter how they try to rationalize it, they can never quite convince themselves they didn't see jake move, just a little bit.
 
2013-02-04 01:14:35 PM
I wonder how she made the connection between wanting to do something to commemorate her lost child and prom dresses for poor girls.

or you can count on getting some. maybe a bit on the freaky side(and by 'a bit' i mean it'll probably stop just short of erotic strangulation but hey never know), but hey, even freaky is ok.

                  Now say thank you to Jake.

/Maybe it's the name, "Jakes's Dates" that I find so creepy.

The kid got off easy, he didn't have to live with that whack job.

uh, where did all the dingos go?

If this gives the family closure to help people; then I'm all for it.

*snark*

/ plus, it gets poor chicks to the prom; you know what they say about poor chicks...

This doesn't sound like coping as much as it does a nervous breakdown.

But it might get the attention of people who will help her cope.

Yeah, I don't get that either. I just know it's creepy as hell and she needs professional help.

She was probably thinking about how much she was looking forward to seeing him take a girlfriend to prom, and went from there. "Rented Tuxes for Jake's Bros" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

SevenizGud: FTFA:
On May 16, 2012, at just 7 1/2 months old, Jacob died. He was a victim, like thousands of infants each year, of Sudden Unexplained Infant Death Syndrome.

"How do you even begin to cope with that?" his mother asked.

Maybe start by not putting the infant in the crib face down, you FARKing tard.

/she should be in prison


At 7.5 months, the kid is more than capable of lifting his head on his own. It doesn't matter which way you lay him down by that age.

The whole face-up/face-down thing has gone back and forth enough times over the years that I don't think it's a safe assumption to cry negligence, especially based on an assumption like that.
 
2013-02-04 01:22:44 PM
How convenient these dresses will all be on hangars that will certainly prove useful in hooking the inevitable prom night dumpster babies all of these poor white trash surely have.

Obviously this mom thought so little of her son she assumed the only girls he'd be dating come from families who can't afford to buy a prom dress.

Way to aim high.

Smeggy Smurf: A bit unconventional but what the hell.  It beats the broad drowning herself in booze.


It's a little more... colorful.. than I'd have phrased it, but otherwise, this. Not the sort of coping mechanism one sees everyday, but I can't bring myself to complain. Helping people feels good; it's no surprise that many people hitting low points in their lives would throw themselves into that task, one way or another.

She's taking a bad feeling and trying to turn it into something positive for somebody other than herself.

/so I can see how some Farkers would find that 'creepy'
 
2013-02-04 01:31:59 PM
Why are all of Jake's dates pedophiles?

Unless she's giving the dresses to 1.5 year olds?

This. There are motion sensors that are sensitive enough to detect when a baby stops breathing. You place it between the mattress and the crib springs, and the sensitivity can be adjusted. Now if she didn't have one of those then she is certainly negligent.

The Evil Home Brewer: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: This is not healthy. It's just really creepy. Hopefully this woman seeks out professional help.

<a target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="netizencain: Also... attention whore.  If she wanted to do something nice she should just do it.  Instead of all the fireworks and flags.  Nice idea but a bit narcissistic.

I would disagree.... She's coping with her pain in a very creative manner. As for the "fireworks & flags?" Advertising is still the best way to get others to support the cause, advertise it in their own communities, collect clothing donations, perhaps even open up chapters in other communities.

As a father who watched his firstborn die a minute after she was born? I applaud this woman's approach to dealing with grief. I have helped to counsel many people over the years who allow their marriages to fall apart, their relationships to stagnate, and their personal care to become nonexistent because of their terrible loss. This woman is coping by HELPING OTHERS .... Would you prefer if she sought donations to give to a church in her son's name?


THIS

As creepy as it looks in some ways, the important thing is this lady and her hubby are using a creative and helpful outlet to handle their pain. Giving some girls a half decent dress to go to the prom is an interesting charity.

Creepy or not, at least she didn't go postal on others or start kidnapping other people's babies or etc.

Does he go out and harvest the dress's himself?

Is there really a demand for baby sized prom dresses?
