Baby in tub

We know exactly what you are thinking right now: what is going on here?

Uploaded to Reddit, this photo of a baby squished into a tube caused quite a stir with almost 2,000 people commenting on his or her tight situation. The fact is that the baby is being held in a contraption meant to take kid's x-rays.

This mechanism is meant to immobilize babies and children who can't sit still during x-rays. That being said, it hopes to allow x-ray technicians do their work with such antsy youngsters more quickly and efficiently.

Nonetheless, people on Reddit couldn't seem to draw comparisons between this baby and silly things.

"It looks like that baby is about to be sent through the tubes at the bank drive through," wrote one user.

Another use compared it to a particular scene in the movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory when one character gets sucked into a tube after he falls into a river filled with chocolate.

This baby also seems to be managing the tight situation just fine, which is something else people drew attention to.
