Baby showers are a contentious issue.

Some people throw themselves one and lavish themselves with gifts and others are too embarrassed to be asking for presents.

My position on baby showers is that they can piss off.

A mum to be has nine months in which to get all the things a baby needs. If she can’t afford the basics – then she’s pretty much up shit street when the child gets older. 

Anyway, this girl on Reddit (the best thing on the internet) was invited to a baby shower but decided not to go. She didn’t know the pregnant girl very well. Fair play.

So she receives this ‘poem’ in the post afterwards:


Cheeky bastard

So she consulted Reddit and sent this poem in return. Spankybottom, you are amazing!
