Poor baby. Her mother says the child was "covered by Christ". More like "surrounded by stupid" IMHO.

It was weird, but not really dangerous. They're ghetto as all hell though, so it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if someone took it away.

To make sure no one steps on it, perhaps have it wear a giant flashing sign that says " MY BASTARD".

Combined with the facebook picture of her and her man, good decision is clearly not a strength.

I um... I just feel sorry for the kid, and thank the sky fairy there aren't triplets.

The daughters turned out to be a little hottie... wonder why she blocked her face out - unless shes got buck teeth or something wrong with her face in general, that body is smokin.

Shona Carter-Brooks decided to include her one-month-old daughter in her wedding ceremony by strapping the child into the back of her gown, which is said to be Vera Wang very wrong

On the bridal gown is where I spend most of my days
Doin' the most, questionin', commentin' all negative
This infant's on a dress, lookin' real decorative
But a couple of papers that were hard up for news
Started makin' fun of mom's attitude
They published one little story and CPS got tough

I really hope she is related to Steve Harvey and he had to attend the wedding.  I can almost hear him now saying, "Oh lawd, they dragged the baby down the isle....."  The rest is what I'm hoping to hear from him, because I know it will be good.

If the brat could walk, she'd been throwing flower peddles.  I find that about as dumb, because a five yro would make a much choice.  I don't find it cute to see a two yro start down the isle, panic and run off crying.  They're not ready for that kind of performance.

/also, that woman will never be that skinny again.
 
2014-06-02 08:27:12 AM  
From the context I imagine a "Covering By Christ" is some new kind of padded baby dragger.
Otherwise this woman is an awful, awful person.

2014-06-02 09:33:47 AM  
dnrtfa, so probably not on the same level or anything, but...

our baby (now 4.5 years old) was 8 days old and in his carrier/car-seat at our wedding

we got married in a (now-retired) coworker's house, because her husband is ordained and wanted to perform a wedding. it was a very lovely wedding...it was just us, but the lady insisted on setting out enough snacks for like 20 people (there was myself, my wife, her daughter, our son, the coworker and her husband, and their granddaughter), and they gave us all gifts, including leather-bound bibles for each of us.

we weren't going to get married at all...we had already been together and living together for a year and a half or so...i had been divorced, she had never been married...but for insurance and tax purposes it was to our financial advantage to get hitched.

In hindsight, this kinda makes sense. For a while now, it seemed many people have kids as a form of fashion accessory. It was only a matter of time before someone had the forethought to actually make the child an accessory.

Visionary. Horrible, horrible visionary...

Weird? Yes.

Stupid?  Also yes.

Indicative of a carelessness that probably means both of these morons are unfit parents?  Yup.

Actually directly dangerous to the baby?  Ehh... not really.  Relies on other people paying attention a lot more than you should, but it would take someone else farking up as well for it to result in harm.

// Or stairs, I guess.
 
2014-06-02 10:24:30 AM  

zarker: It was weird, but not really dangerous.


I'm not so sure about that. At one month of age, the baby's bones are not done ossifying, especially not in the skull. Being dragged along the ground is a bumpy ride, even on relatively smooth surfaces: not as bad as stairs, perhaps, but for a one-month-old I have doubts that it would have been entirely safe. The child should have been carried, either in the bride's or groom's arms or possibly in some form of sling or backpack. Either of these latter choices could have been designed into (or at least designed to go with) the dress.

There is one last possibility: that this dress was a more impressive feat of engineering than the article describes. Maybe they'd installed padding underneath the train, fastened to a belt worn by the mother like a kind of travois. Then the padding would be dragged along (but firmly underneath) the baby, and thus smooth out the ride. If so, then it must have been impressive indeed, because the dress certainly looks like the baby was being dragged with no support, security, or padding. Maybe too impressive: I have difficulty faulting people being scared.

Then again, the article does state that the dress may have been by by Vera Wang. Assuming that's true, then something like this could very well have been within her capability to design, and if we assume that she knew of the couple's baby-dragging plans, I can't imagine that she wouldn't have insisted on adding this kind of design element. Still an ill-conceived plan, but at least not so horrendously dangerous.

But then, if something like this were to be the case, I'd imagine that the couple would have explained it by now, partly to assuage people's fears and partly to show off the awesome design that made it possible. That isn't happening, so maybe this just is people being stupid. Maybe Vera didn't know about the couple's plan. I don't know.

Actually no racism even intended....just a commentary on the sheer stupidity of dragging a baby behind her in that manner. Knuckle dragging as in...no fore thought or consideration of safety, common sense or decorum and the pun for the literal dragging.

Trying to guess why Whisky seems this as racist.

Perhaps "ghetto"? "Trailer Park" could have been used also.
MY BASTARD is technically incorrect, as it implies male, but I've never heard that as racial.
"kids possible other fathers" - Yeah, this must be racist. Because only them black girls slut around.
"Thanks Obama! - OK, Whisky must be new here on Fark.
"Knuckle draggers" - This term has been around probably for at least a century. It's applied to slow and stupid people. I've never heard it in a racial context. Usually used for people who beat up other people.

Hmm. So I suspect the racism is coming from troll who is shouting racism.

Umm, no.  "Knuckle draggers" is used to compare someone to an ape.  If you don't see how comparing a black person to an ape is racist, then you're right:  I am a giant troll.

Reminiscent of the hunched over cave man, with his arms to the ground. An insult used against those of extremely low intelligence, or general stupidity.

Hmm, so you admit you are a knuckle dragger because you are a racist. That's pretty clear now. Troll.

This looks like a very stupid thing to do, but not dangerous.  FTFA : 'I am sorry but if I would have saw that I would have gotten out of my seat and taken that baby. That is truly dumb,' complained one person on the website Clutch.

You can't just go "taking that baby" any time you don't like something. I'd see that as kidnapping, and I suspect the law would, also.

Vitamin Pb: MY BASTARD is technically incorrect, as it implies male, but I've never heard that as racial.


Not racial, agreed.  But it doesn't mean "male" at all.  Could be male, or female.

Anyone want to tell me WTF is this Blood of Christ stuff - sounds messy, and does it wash out?

Re the dress - it isn't MADE by Vera Wang, it is bought off the rack from the mass produced Vera Wang presents kind of line, where $24k dresses for for $600 instead - so not customised. She may have had someone sew some straps or something in, but the only Vera Wang is the money the designer is making lending her name to wannabe brides who want the name but can only afford the 'it will do' bridal line. NTTAWT.


My daughter decided to get her wedding dress new (and they fit it to your exact measurements) on Ebay for less than $100AU. Actually decided to get 2 for same price so she could choose between them, then sell the one unused. Of course, ended up with four of them -  but still will be heaps cheaper than the usual starting at $1500AU in those vampiric horrors -  bridal stores. What ripoffs! She beat them by doing it this way,a nd the dresses have al been stunning, beautifully made, and great materials.

Did you not read the article? If there was a negative stereotype, this woman portrayed it--lived it. Had she been white, the trashy ignorance of the affair still would have made all the white trash stereotypes true.

If brains were dynamite, this dizzy bint of a bride could not blow her nose.  You want the baby to "participate" in the ceremony?  Then get rid of that ass ugly black silk "bouquet" and carry the child proudly in your arms, not drag her along on the train of your dress, as if she's some sort of anchor.
