Apparently, children are such stupid and inept creatures that their delicates heads must be protected with colorful foam helmets during ordinary activities such as peering through binoculars, swimming, and other forms of play. Just remember, parents, it’s “essential playwear.” (Via Joanne Jacobs.)
Funny me, I always thought that natureprovided us with a fairly good protective helmet for the brain, i.e. the skull. (Of course, some activities demand a bit more protection, such as riding horses.)
Oh, how I pity the poor children whose parents buy such devices of modern torture!
