And while I, PERSONALLY, think it's far from funny...people on Twitter seem to think differently.

I just found out this is how they X-ray small children and I canโ€™t stop laughing

Of course, the jokes started rolling in.

And some parents agreed it was funny, sharing pictures of their own kids getting X-rays.

Obviously, the mechanism serves a purpose. It is made to make X-rays easier and provide a clear image, since kids squirm and move around A LOT. This radiographer even shared their own experience:
