Disposable kids

I always have a chuckle when I pass this shop on the way back from the baker's every Saturday morning.
Of course, "baby" and "dump" are legitimate words in Dutch, but I wouldn't advise this store to expand its business to English-speaking markets. Whereas "dump" in English means a "tip", a place to dispose of unwanted items, in Dutch it is more commonly used to denote a store where surplus goods (which are "dumped", as it were) are sold - like an army & navy store.
