Share Your Ickiest Story And Win Big During The Ick Awards


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Clorox.

Sure, there are messier jobs. Coal miners get awfully filthy and the poor souls on bathroom duty in French Quarter bars don’t have it (big) easy, ahem, to say the least, but parenting, especially parenting during the early years, that’s one icky occupation. That’s an Ick Award winning occupation!

I’ve been there, you’ve been there, we’ve all been there –> the baby poop it spreads like a virus from a terrible Jerry Bruckheimer summer blockbuster, it seeps out of the once tightly-secured diaper, glides up their back beneath their white “Daddy’s Little Lovebug” onesie, drips down their chubby exposed legs, and eventually, plops onto your beige family room carpet. That’s an icky moment called a Two-sie. That’s crazy disgusting. And beige, really? With a new baby?

But as gross as smeared baby poop is and as nasty as projectile toddler vomit hitting the side of your face at 1:30am is (hi there!) and as foul as the dining room floor looks after your kiddo’s first bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, all of those icky moments are anecdotes worth storing away to 1) regale your grandchildren with someday, 2) to have turned into Second City comedy skits, and 3) to use to win money during a virtual award show. Huh? Yep. Read on, Ick Master General!

Baby Peas are mushy and messy ick moments with clorox

If you’ve got kids, and considering you’re reading a site called OUT WITH THE KIDS, I’m going to assume you do, you’ve got at least a few #ickies to submit to the Clorox Ick Awards for a chance to win some of the $2500 in cold hard cash that’ll be glad-handed out during an epic 4-hour Twitter party next week. That’s right, 4 hours. Take to Twitter starting right now to share your ickiest of moments with @Clorox using the hashtag #ickies, then make plans to join the massive Ick Awards Twitter Party on Wednesday, April 9th from 6-10 pm ET to see #ickies submissions — maybe yours! — transformed into improv comedy sketch video skits by comedians from the famed Second City troupe. I waited until April Fools Day was over to post this because you probably would think it a hoax. It’s real, peeps. For reals. Real-time comedy will be spawned from your real-life moments in a virtual award show like no other. If you could read that last sentence over again in a Jerry Bruckheimer summer blockbuster movie preview guy voice, that’d be great. Thanks.

Sounds awesome right? Well it gets even more awesomererer! Join the Clorox Ick Awards Twitter Party during the first hour (6-7 pm ET) to see if your #ickies made it into the opening number featuring a surprise celebrity guest! And stick around for the last hour (9-10 pm ET) when me, the How To Be A Dad boys, and a gaggle of other awesome dads will blow your mind with icky + snarky humor.

And then there’s the inevitable ‘ick’ moment when your growing girl develops a taste for mozzarella and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar. Yeah, THAT’S a fun cleanup!
