What a fucking move out of this woman. I mean if I did something like that, being in the doghouse for the rest of my life would be the best case scenario. I would imagine instant divorce and probably a roundhouse kick to the face would be the most likely punishment.
Now I’ve watched this video a bunch of times and have come up with three possible scenarios that caused this lady to pull this stunt.
1. She is on some Sun Tzu Art of War kick and realizes that bringing a baby into a fight pretty much makes her untouchable. It’s like what wearing glasses into a fight (used to?) mean. I’ve never been in a real fight before so I don’t know if that’s still a thing. You see a person wheeling a baby in a mall, they are almost always a civilian. I almost respect the move if this is the case.
2. This isn’t her kid. She is either a babysitter going shopping or an aunt taking her nephew out to spread some holiday cheer. At least that would explain the lack of Mom Instincts to wheel a kid directly into danger and catching a stray karate chop. You hear how moms have been able to lift cars in order to save their kids. This woman does the exact opposite. I believe the old Jay-Z phrase “Fresh out the frying pan into the fire” applies here but I’m not sure exactly what it means.
3. She loves Superkicking people in the face more than anyone in the world. That includes The Showstopper, The Icon, The Main Event. The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels doesn’t even love the feeling of foot to face as much as this chick. And if that’s the case, it’s hard to hate on somebody doing what they love. That’s what Mike Francesa taught us in his closing monologue on Friday.
But still, as a dad and as a human, I think I have to rule that bringing a kid into a brawl with the structure of a Rough N Rowdy fight is a baddddd look.
P.S. Shout out to this guy for stepping up and protecting the kid. I did NOT see him as the hero when this video started. All time Shyamalan twist.
