Smoking Baby Doll is a Drag

Could someone tell us what's funny about a baby smoking??

Novelty company Archie McPhee sure has one strange sense of humor. Take a look at their Smoking Baby selling for $5.95. After the horrific story of the mom who let her three-year-old smoke, we're pretty sickened.  The description of this ceramic doll says, "Ceramic babies smoking, on the other hand, are strangely appealing." Really? We don't think so.

Is Archie McPhee any relation to Katharine McPhee?

There is even a video of Smoking Baby Alive in youtube, which may have been the inspiration of this. Whatever it is, it should be rated 18

Are you familiar with satire?

it says on the package “REAL babies should NEVER smoke!” Sounds pretty clear to me.

I think it’s a brilliant metaphor.
