Ready To Pick Up The Kids!

Via reddit/TheRandomDreamer.

This mom slipped into the weirdest (but arguably funniest) swimsuit of 2017 for the sole purpose of embarrassing her daughter at school pick up!  Better yet, she wore the garment as a bodysuit under her clothes, leaving just a hint of hairy beer gut exposed for maximum embarrassment. Maybe next time her kids will clean up their rooms the FIRST time she asks!

How is a dad supposed to shame his daughter into being chaste when he's not around? Put his face on a gigantic blanket, that's how! Just try to get your freak on with dad looking on disapprovingly; we dare you.
