Alibaba: Chunky Children

What’s being advertised here – the ‘pool,’ the flotation device, or a winking pile of baby flesh?

Photoshop Disasters

More questionable than this standing bath tub (that’s the most practical use I can fathom) is that there is a child seemingly abandoned in it. Is it weird because it’s out of context, or is it weird because the child was inexplicably photoshopped in a semi-public area for no reason?

Thanks Johnathan for the find. You can see the original BizRace

    I like that there are three watermarks to keep you from stealing this fine example. Although, to be fair, the Chinese one may only be on the background image. That’s not counting the PS Disasters one.

    OK, we have a lethally deep pool full of water that doesn’t bulge the sides of this cheap thing, but it’s about to spill forward and give thispoor kid a bloody nose, Nothing awkward here; nothing at all.

    There must be a hole in the clouds, as only the “bath tub” is casing a shadow.

      It’s Alibaba, a wholesale import site having no truck with consumers.That translation seems good enough to get the job done since the buyer will put her own warning sheets into the boxes of the two or ten thousand units she orders.

    Not only is the image a disaster, the source advert (which appears to indicate the pool and swim ring are both included in the package) is a brilliant example of “Lost in translation” – a hilariously bad attempt at translation into English, including this prime example from the manual:

    A. Bay swims one time per day and 10 – 20 mints each time,please do it after meal hour.

    Presumably polo mints aren’t included…

    I don’t think the Consumer Product Safety Commission is going to be happy with this one.

    I can’t get over my impression that Baby is floating inside an enormous iced doughnut.

    It also seems to have been photographed on a distant planet where the laws of gravity no longer apply, allowing the water to remain on a sloped plane without spilling.
