  1. OMG! Put the baby in a drop box? Mail a letter, drop a baby, FedEx, etc.

    Down here, you can bring a baby to any police or fire station without question and the baby will be taken care of and put up for adoption.

    Drop box????

  2. Glad they are making a come back. Nuns in the “old world” used to have a form of baby “drop boxes” way back when. I don’t remember specifics.

    Somehow I vaguely remember a Monty Python skit based on a baby turntable drop box.

  3. My ass. I bet PP has keys to those drop-off boxes and grabs the infants for their “parts is parts” operation the split second those boxes are activated. (If I can think of it, it can happen.)

  4. wonder how much time it’s gonna take before the ‘Feral Americans’ start stuffing toddlers in there?

  5. @refuse/resist, Out here we call it the tripsss.
    Shoot, Shovel, Shut-up
    Or, you can save yourself some work, there’s always the crabs and gators.

  6. Questions:

    -Does it hold more than one baby? Accommodation for twins, triplets?
    -Say, what if you want a baby, cheaper than adoption?
    -Trade ins, leave a baby, take a baby?
    -Can it accomadate an unwanted spouse? Trade ins?
    -What a great idea for depositing those unwanted pets!
    -Ohhh, Ohhh, how about the mother-in-law, or other nuisance relatives?
    -Or that old person who doesn’t want to go to a nursing home.
    -Hey! This may be a solution to the VA problems. ‘Deposit a military Vet.

    Damn our government sure makes it easy for us.

    There is no excuse for dumping a baby in a toilet or trash bin or side of the road. Any hospital, fire department, church, etc will take in a child left with them. There have always been safe places to leave a child.

  7. We’re suing until we can get it extended to 45 months
