Designer babies may be the new thing for couples that have extra bucks in the bank and can afford to have the perfect child. But what about those younger, poorer pairs who want offspring? Like those of us who don’t have the funds to afford fancy furniture and instead purchase cheap, assemble-it-yourself starter stuff, these wannabe-parents will make a trip to Ikea. BÅB is a newborn baby that comes in a flat box to cut down on costs. Genius!
Actually, BÅB isn’t real. If you were hoping for the baby equivalent of the BILLY bookshelf, sorry. BÅB was a joke created by a mathematician with a sense of humor. It’s a good thing BÅB doesn’t really exist, because upwardly mobile couples might get rid of their starter babies in exchange for designer babies when the economy bounces back. [The Daily Beast]
