I hate those ‘Baby Sex Parties’. Do you know the ones I’m talking about? The ones that see an insufferably smug couple gather together a load of mates to tell them whether their unborn child is going to be a boy or a girl. (Editor’s note: they’re actually called ‘Gender Reveal Parties’. Do not, under any circumstance, google ‘Baby Sex Party’.) I’ve never been to one, but they look pretty wretched affairs. What’s more, they seem to be getting worse. (And by worse, I mean more dangerous.) In the US recently, a couple detonated 80 pounds worth of explosives as part of their big reveal. They carried out the blast in a disused quarry but it still made a big enough bang to cause structural damage to houses in the area. The most astonishing thing about the report, however, was this bit: “The explosives, which are typically sold over the counter…” TYPICALLY SOLD OVER THE COUNTER! I know the US constitution calls for the right to bear arms, but I didn’t realise there was an addendum that read: “The right to bear explosives (for the purposes of a Baby Sex Party).”
