Should The U.S. Adopt Finland’s ‘Baby Box’ For New Parents?

When it comes to maternity leave, The United States earns a pretty dismal ranking when compared to other countries, being the only first-world country, and one of only three countries (the others being Lesotho, Swaziland and Papua New Guinea) that does not offer paid maternity leaves. Not only do other countries have better systems in place for maternity leave, but they have some pretty great welcoming gifts for their newest citizens. In Finland, for example, new parents can choose between receiving the above maternity package filled with essentials for baby's first few months or a tax-free lump sum of 140 euros as a maternity grant.

Watch This Father’s Greatest Achievement

Who's ready for 52 seconds of cute? Good, then watch on.

In this recent video -- featuring a father duetting with his daughter to the popular 'Mahna Mahna' tune from 'The Muppets' -- YouTube user Jesse Teeters claims this to be his greatest achievement in the two-and-a-half years he's been a parent.

Kia Introduces Space Babies and ‘Babylandia’ in Their Super Bowl 2013 Commercial

We wish our parents had been as imaginative as this guy when we were growing up. When we asked where babies come from, we were usually answered with a suspicious look, or, if we were really lucky, an admonishment to eat all of our dinner.

If you can get past the initial nose picking in this video, you're in for a pretty good time. We don't think that repeatedly karate chopping the back of someone's hand is necessarily the best way to disarm a person with a knife, but it's funny because it's a baby who is dressed up like a mugger.
