So not only do they start putting kids in the water the moment they’re out the womb, but they encourage them to swim by basically hanging the little buggers by the neck.

Genius.

I daren’t imagine what they do to train the relay team – maybe dynamite sticks?

That is the best picture I’ve seen in ages.
Sick, but brilliant.

youre wrong campbell, they are breeding swimming heads to win gold in the para olympics and those little red and balloons are other heads waiting to fucking hatch.

great photo but you do realise you look very much like the little bastards dont you?

Comment by andy@cynic

Maybe I was wrong, maybe it’s some weird Japanese Sumo for babies competition. In a swimming pool.

[Note how I ignored your daft comment Andy 😉 ]

Wait till tomorrow’s post!

They need to give them short shins and long arms. Maybe serial breaking and re-shaping of bones is the next stage..

You’d look scared if Campbell was pointing his lens at you.

Comment by John Dodds

Is that because they’re too old for you to bother photographing Mr Dodds?

Comment by Rob

Mrs C – I think your boy needs to be given a good talking to.

JUST INCASE SOME HALF WIT POPS BY THIS BLOG AND THINKS I ENJOY WATCHING KIDS IN THIS SITUATION – I CAN ASSURE YOU I DON’T AND THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A STUPID BIT OF FUN ON A STUPID BLOG WHICH REPRESENTS MY PERSONAL OPINIONS AND NONE OF THE COMPANIES I WORK/ASSOCIATE WITH. THANK YOU 🙂

Comment by Rob

When I was their age they didn’t give us anything, it was either sink or swim. It was the government’s way of encouraging people to have more kids I think

Had you not written your legal disclaimer comment, I’d of regarded this photo as cute and amusing but now it all feels slightly sinister so in future may I recommend you ignore whoever it was that planted the seed of doubt in your mind, because what they actually have done is create concern in readers minds where previously there would have been none.

Comment by George

George, believe me, there was always concern. It was always there.

I think it would be best if I make a hasty retreat at this point.

Comment by George

No Northern (“Maybe serial breaking and re-shaping of bones is the next stage..”) that is reserved for their baby future gymnasts ! That and tying them up folded for days on end ! (Pure heresay of course !)
