 Granpa MC’s Dirty Diaper Derby


Diaper Derby PhotoThis past week Granpa Cratchet visited Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania where he was MC for the Diaper Derby. Contestants had to still be wearing diapers and crawling. The babies were placed on a matt and the first to crawl six feet across the line won a box of diapers.

One contestant became suspect when that diaper clad male sported a five o’clock shadow. The 36 year old man was hauled off by local police while screaming for his mommy and was booked for impersonating a cry baby.

Derby officials fled the scene amid accusations the diaper derby was dirty when a woman wearing a diaper, lipstick and a wedding ring crossed the finish line in under five seconds. The derby committee sited the short supply and high demand for diapers as the main culprit in the race fixing debacle.

This year one baby boy was disqualified when they discovered a jet pack strapped to his back. He crossed the finish line in record time, broke glass in the town bell tower with a sonic boom and was later discovered in a neighboring county. After smoke cleared the mother was forced to return the diaper winnings.

Parents were not allowed to pinch, push, poke or prod their baby or coax their baby toward the finish line using any ill-legal substance. Parents used bottles, cheerios,

chocolate, stuffed toys and pictures of relatives. One mother tried to fix the race by spraying W-D 40 in front of her baby and starting him off with a shuffleboard stick.

The derby committee, in an attempt to satisfy the growing demands of success driven parents, are considering a special derby heat involving a five gallon bucket of Vaseline and high pressure air hoses.
