Earlier this week, I received a link from Technorati through Twitter. The link went to some pictures of babies dressed like Yoda with vile and shrewd commentary written underneath each photo. Turns out the website was Your Baby is an A**hole.
The website reminded me of another website a friend had turned me on to recently, F*ck You, Penguin. (Except A**hole is slightly less funny. IMO.) FU, Penguin is a blog where writer Matthew Gasteier tells lovable animals “what’s what.” Wired magazine writes that the blog is the “ultimate antidote to puppycams.”
In May 2009, after years of having the site, Gasteier wrote his blog was being turned into a book. (Villard Books, an imprint of Random House, is the publisher.) But what does this have to do with your baby being lame?
Turns out that in 2007, a blog called Your Baby is Lame was started, and turns out Your Baby is Lame and Your Baby is an A**hole just found out about each other. Just check out the comments on this YBIAA post. Oh and check out this entry on the Your Baby is Lame website.
*Cough* maybe I should send this *cough* entry to *cough* passive-aggressive notes, titled, *cough*, “When websites get *cough* passive-aggressive. *cough*”
So, what are your thoughts? Is someone right and another wrong? Is your baby lame or an arsehole?
