Another day, another controversial ad campaign, another chance for the Internet to get up in arms (take a break already, Internet!). But gone are the days of happy prostitutes. The newest campaign raising eyebrows: Pregnant teen boys. 

The campaign, by Chicago Department of Public Health's Office of Adolescent and School Health, features "provocative" pictures with the tagline, "Unexpected? Most teen pregnancies are."

Here are some facts to back up the campaign: Teen pregnancy in Chicago is 1.5 times higher than the national average. That said, teen pregnancy is down 33 percent in Chicago. Boys cannot get pregnant.

The brains behind the campaign hope the ads will show that "teen parenthood is more than just a girl's responsibility." A lesson you won't learn on MTV's Teen Mom. ("Hey baby, make that baby stop cryin', I'm gon' fourwheeling," every single father on the show has said at least once.)

So remember, kids: No glove, no love. Because one of you will get pregnant and you might not even end up on a TV show. You probably will though, right? You'll never know unless you try!
