Baby Shower Shootout Makes Shower Games Sound Fun

Sasha Brown-Worsham

Baby showers are generally dull and kind of silly for everyone except the mother-to-be and her relatives, so when someone throws one that ends in a shootout, you kind of have to take notice.

One 14-year-old girl and two adults were shot in an attempted robbery in Brooklyn last Saturday as they made their way out of a baby shower. And while the good news is that all three are expected to recover, the bad news is this is a pretty auspicious beginning for the life of the unborn baby.

My baby shower had quiche lorraine and notes of love from all my friends. It definitely didn't have any bullets.

Obviously this story would have a very different flavor if the people shot were expected not to make it, but given they're going to be OK, it's OK to say WTF?!

I mean, seriously, I bet right about now they're thinking "guess the melted candy bar in the diaper"; "how big is mommy's belly"; and "pin the diaper pin on the baby" are all pretty appealing. This is especially true when you compare them to BEING SHOT. Come on now. What is this world coming to?

Shootouts and robberies at baby showers. Fantastic.

Does this story make your own baby shower look uneventful?
