Today is April Fool's Day, so when it comes to pictures of toddlers crushing cigarrettes, we tread carefully. Still, here are several pictures of a chill ass toddler smoking a cigarette lit for him by his mom in Shanghai's Fuxing park on Easter Sunday.
Hart Hagerty, who runs the blog Shanghai Style File, posted the photos some time on the morning of April 1 (according to the original timestamp on the image, the photo was taken on March 1, so again, do not trust this baby—or any babies—no matter how many cool hoodies he owns and lets you borrow) along with the caption:
And now for something completely different. We interrupt Shanghai Style File's usual broadcast of all things chic to present to you a smoking Chinese toddler spotted on Easter Sunday in Shanghai's family-friendly Fuxing Park. My jaw dropped when his pajama-clad mother handed the tot a cigarette… then lit it for him … then smiled on as he smoked it… then laughed as he rolled on the ground when he felt sick. As I snapped photos, my friends begged the parents to intervene, but they just enjoyed the show. This is a disturbing scene indeeed, but I could not not share this.
Smoking Hipster Baby, today you are only making an "April Fool" out of yourself.
