You think that spank hurt? Just wait to see how you feel when hit the pavement, crybaby.

SOLAPUR, INDIA - Parenting can be tough. From constantly changing rotten diapers, to waking in the middle of the night for feeding, to having to shake the damn thing until it stops screaming and finally shuts up, parenting can be an all-out struggle at the best of times. Sometimes it's enough to make you want to throw that little demon off the roof.

That's exactly what some couples are doing in Solapur, India. Every May, parents gather to discard their unwanted infants by tossing the little bundles of misery from a 50-foot tower, relieving themselves instantly from a lifetime of suffering.

"Well, I'm glad that's over," said former parent Saladdin Chamcha, dusting his hands as he climbed down the tower stairs. "You know, I never really knew what I was getting into when I decided to become a parent. You're expected to bathe it, and wash it, and love it. If I knew it was going to be so much work I would've gotten a kitten instead."

"You just don't know the kind of mess you're about to step into," said onetime mother Polly Godbole. "Thankfully though, parenting doesn't have to be a lifelong commitment. You can always change your mind like I just...Hey!...I think that one's still moving!"
