This public service message brought to you by the Perfect Celebrity Mothers of Park Slope (PCMPS).

Frequent copyranter contributor brandspankin' snapped this gem of a Public Service subway poster recently. The 2nd and 3rd ads in the campaign would be:
previously in NYC subway finds:
1. worse than confusing.
2. The MTA needs our 16 million eyes.
3. conEdison. FULL OF IT.
4. Worst. Anthropomorphism. EVER.

A message obviously aimed at the mixed race couple bohemian demographic. Very progressive. Very hip. Very Park Slope.

I see these ads all the time -- I think they're plastered on the Franklin Ave shuttle train. There are ads like, "Never leave your baby alone in the bathtub," and they're in Spanish, too. Park Slope tryin' to preach to Prospect Heights.. shut it, self-righteous moms.

Never mike a baby. Well, you could, just use wax paper so you don't have to clean the top. (The top is hard to clean, c'mon. Gotta turn the thing on its side, door swings shut on your hand. what a pain.)

Reminds me of a PSA that ran in DC when I was a kid, designed to bring attention to lead based paint that kids were apparently eating.

Ghetto apartment, crib next to a wall of peeling paint. Soulful singer intones:

Paint chips peelin'
and my baby's dead
My baby's dead

Much better to use a blender. Add ice and a strawberry. Mmmmm.

If you can't shake the baby, how will you know if the rattle works? How?

That is one ugly baby. Seinfeld-episode ugly.

This may be funny to y'all but the last time my mother-in-law was visiting, I had my brother-in-law's daughter in my arms under the ceiling fan and she said, "Do not raise the child into the ceiling fan", so I guess I'm just saying this campaign infuriates me.

Never Dry a Wet Baby in a Microwave.

...and always point a baby away from yourself and others when opening it.

Or maybe that was champagne. I always get those two confused.
