The Huffington Post has a story about a little boy being video taped funneling a Capri Sun at a tailgating party.
The video was apparently removed from You Tube by the user, but The Huffington Post still has a screen grab of the little guy with the funnel in his mouth.
I am bummed I didn’t get to see the video but I still think with the screen grab a discussion can be had.
“Under 21? Beer funnel a Capri Sun in the meantime.”
“This little boy does just that at what appears to be a tailgate among some University of Miami fans.”
“Funny? Yes. Good idea? Maybe not.”
“The boy’s eager, commendable performance is surely worth a few chuckles, but as commenters on YouTube point out, the beer chugging fake-out might not be setting the best example for the child.”
You can easily imagine how it probably happened: The parents were all doing it and the kid wanted to do it so they just let him do it with a Capri Sun or someone thought it would be funny to tape the kid doing it so they gave the Capri Sun. The set up may have been in the video, which we don’t get to see.
I guess at least they gave him Capri Sun and didn’t give him beer. Do they get credit for that?
Is it wrong to let the kid try the funnel even without alcohol? Is it wrong to be doing a beer funnel in front of your kids? Is it more wrong that just drinking a beer in front of your kids? If so, why?
