Default Gender Reveal Party... wtf

Got off the phone with my wife. She is going to her friend's sister's "gender reveal" party. WTF is this crap? I guess the couple gets to surprise everybody there with the gender of their 14 week fetus and you're supposed to give them gifts for that? They're going to do some stupid BS where they paint something and it's either blue or pink (I don't know, I wasn't paying attention).

I asked if this is the baby shower.... no, that's not until they're about to poop the thing out. This is number 4 for them. Oh I forgot. The sister (wife's friend) and parents are the only ones who know the gender and it's supposed to be a surprise to all of the guests. But the sister can't keep her mouth shut so literally everyone already knows it's a boy.

I can't even comprehend the stupidity that I just heard. I have so many questions starting with WHY.....

An excuse for a party, I don't see the problem. It's not like your wife has to come dressed as Minnie Mouse.

Who is still having showers and parties for their 4th kid? You have a shower for the first one, not every kid.

I thought this was going to be about Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner.


Thankfully, I was wrong.

haha true true.

I guess the underlying thing here is that this couple is always dying for attention and it's already annoying.... now this.

There's really not a whole lot to do in Oklahoma, huh? Make babies and have parties.

As a side note to that, I still laugh about my first trip to fish with a buddy in a very small town in middle of nowhere Texas. One main street, one stoplight kind of town. I asked him (seriously) "What do guys do around here for fun?" and he replied "We hunt and we f***." Okay, so I asked "What do you hunt?" He looked at me and smiled "Something to f***!"

I am disappointed, I thought this was a party that everyone drop their pant(ies) and reveal what they are.

Yeah, it's just another name for a baby shower. My brother had to go to one for his best friend a while back. I told him "Man, you just got suckered into going to a baby shower with a different name". His response was "WTF, I did didn't I? Those A-Holes!"
