Can't touch this

Here's the latest product for the "Baby on Board" parents who think their little blessings are simply too precious for this world: A sign that asks people to wash their hands before touching the little bundle of joy.

How are the little darlings supposed to build up any immunity if they're never exposed to germs? How can adult hands be any germier than the baby's own, when babies spend all day exploring their own toes, noses and various orifices?

This kind of parental paranoia takes all the fun out of babies. What's next? A sign asking that we not grab up passing babies and toss them into the air and (perhaps) catch them as they come down?
