New Baby Shampoo: Nothing But Tears

After decades of coddling young children, Johnson & Johnson decided to go the other way and toughen 'em up with this new shampoo: Nothing But Tears!

A radical departure for the health goods manufacturer, the new shampoo features an all-alcohol-based formula, has never once been approved by leading dermatologists, and is as gentle on a baby's skin as "having to grow up and fend for your goddamn self."

"We at Johnson & Johnson have been making bath time a safe and soothing experience for far too long," company CEO William C. Weldon said. "Years of pampering have left our newborns helpless, feeble, and ill-equipped for the arduous road ahead."

"It's time our children got the wake-up call that's been coming to them," Weldon continued. "It's time they cried their precious little eyes out."

Johnson's Baby Shampoo isn't all that non-toxic, anyway. Ever looked at the ingredients? It's just a list of chemicals. They could probably use this ad and it wouldn't be that much of a stretch.

I thought it was a reference to the fact that Johnson & Johnson test their beauty products on animals. Whilst I'd say it's necessary for medical research, dripping shampoo into rabbit's eyes to see if they go blind just isn't cool.
