When Kate Blandford posted this hilarious status update on her Facebook page, she had no idea it would quickly become a meme that would circulate wildly amongst parents — and anyone with a sense of humor.

“My partner and I like to make ‘updated’ nursery rhymes for our eight month old daughter and I’m pretty big into the pro-vax communities, so it just sort of came together,” Blanford told Scary Mommy. “I only posted it on my wall. Others posted it to Reddit and Ebaumsworld, and Dawn from Dawn’s Brain contacted me and then made the meme that went so viral.”

A funny thing happened when it was posted to Reddit. Users started adding to the story. Hilarity ensued:

Nine little monkeys…

Eight little monkeys…

Seven little monkeys…

Six little monkeys…

Five little monkeys…

Four little monkeys…

Three little monkeys…

Two little monkeys…

One little monkey…

This needs to be illustrated and published as soon as possible. Maybe it should be called, 10 Little Monkeys, The Sanctimommy Edition. Or maybe, 10 Little Monkeys, As Told By All The Women You Hate In Mom Group.

I’d buy it.
