Pregnant-Mom-on-Board Emergency Signage for your Car
I stayed up half the night thinking about the following product, then something occurred to me, I fell into a deep peaceful sleep and I haven’t thought about it since.
Is it possible for me to immortalize this product in the annals of baby product humor? No. The job has already been done. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The Woman in Labor Alerter Sign is an illuminated, magnetized sign you stick on the roof of your car to alert other drivers that you are transporting a woman in labor. The sign, which reads, “Woman in Labor,” is reminiscent of similarly illuminated signs found of the roofs of taxis which read “Taxi.” The price is $29.99. It comes in blue or pink.
According to an article in the Daily Southtown, a father of four girls invented the sign, reportedly explaining, “Females are very, very receptive to this. They love the idea. [...] And when a lady is having a baby, she’s definitely going to get her way.”
I would like to see a sign that reads, “Screaming child inside,” so as to alert other drivers that there is a distracted parent behind the wheel.
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
