When talking about epic parenting fails, this should be on the list. Listen, If your child's cloths are dirty, they should be cleaned. I think you should take the child OUT of the clothes first.

A couple brought their young kid to a laundromat and, for some unknown reason, decided to put him in the washing machine. They of course then freaked out when they couldn't open the door and the wash cycle started. But after spinning for over a minute he was pulled out and fortunately only suffered only minor bumps and bruises. Fail!
