    A little disturbing but I do find it humorous.

    I still don't get what Apple was thinking with this. Were they really thinking this would go without any backlash?

    I think they've got monkeys on typewriters approving these applications, so they had no way of thinking about any possible backlash.

    I thought it was funny, shaking it till it had X's over the baby eyes, I mean its really humorous... though, I can see why thats a serious offense to mothers and such, I wonder who would allow that to pass the apple application test lol

    wonder if parents would have a problem if they changed it so the baby would cry and you would shake the phone like you were rocking the baby and if you did it to fast or long you would get the red x

    Not offended by it...

    But I don't see what is funny about it, and I'll never understand why/how Apple let this go through.

    well, it had no profanity or nudity (of real people), so they really didn't screen it beyond that most likely. stupid they didn't catch it though

    I think it's hilarious that people can't separate reality from fantasy, so this kind of humor gets censored. So it's actually funny on a whole new level.

    Maybe its suppose to show you how hard you can shake your baby before he dies.
    My sense of humor is not that morbid but I'd not judge those that thinks its funny.

    i can see how the humor is misplaced in making this and the screwup of apple not catching it in their review process, but i still laughed when i saw it the first time. people are making a big deal of stupid shit like normal
