The first rule of Baby Fight Club is: You do not put videos of your Baby Fight Club on Snapchat. If you break that [incredibly important] rule of Baby Fight Club, you will probably be fired from your job and charged with “endangering the welfare of a child.” This is, for the most part, what happened to two New Jersey daycare employees.

Reports CBS New York:

Erica Kenny, 22, of Cranford, and Chanese White, 28, of Roselle are accused of encouraging children, ages 4 to 6, to fight each other on the playground of the Lightbridge Academy in Cranford last month.

Kenny allegedly took video and shared it with friends on the SnapChat app, prosecutors said. Kenny can be heard referring to the movie “Fight Club” as the kids hit each other, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors allege the Snapchat videos “show about a dozen boys and girls shoving each other to the ground and trying to hit each other.” The two wannabe Tyler Durdens are “expected to appear in court Friday,” and Kenny “could get up to five years” behind bars.

The second rule of Baby Fight Club is: Actually never mind don’t ever start a Baby Fight Club.

Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest babies who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation passing gas, waiting for naps; slaves with white diapers. Mommy has us chasing toys and laser pointers, eating pablum we hate so we can make shit for our parents to clean. We’re the youngest children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s over nap time... our Great Depression is our inability to hold our heads up without assistance. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be magical ponies, and firefighters, and Hannah Montana. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.
