Jack Osbourne Dresses Daughter Pearl Up Just Like Grandpa

“The Osbournes” pioneered the family-centric reality TV format, and I personally believe that the entire genre should have just quit while it was ahead. The Kardashians are good for whatever it is that they’re good for, but nothing will ever compare to Ozzy’s aimless bumbling, Sharon’s loving shrillness, Kelly and Jack, teenage Jack’s oft-berated Australian… More »

Your Daily Squee: Toddlers Tasting Lemons For The First Time

Has this week been kinda brutal for you guys? I swear half the recent updates on my Twitter and Facebook feeds have been along the lines of “Today sucks!” or “Why does life have to be so freakin’ complicated?!” I have personally cried in public twice this week (one outburst took place at the DMV,… More »


Baby Wigs Finally Make The New York Times Style Section

When I first saw a picture of a baby wearing a Beyonce-inspired lace front wig — this was back in December of 2009 — I found myself disturbed by the idea. Mostly, because the mother said, “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” which I thought was ridiculous. One of… More »

A Steaming, Hot Mug O’ Baby Coming Right Up

I don’t usually get too into babies/animals/baby animals, but fuck it, I’m a human being. I like babies in wigs, owls with mops and things with fluffy faces sometimes.

Saudi Cleric Suggests Baby Girls Wear Burqas To “Protect” Them From Sexual Assault

A Saudi Arabian cleric raised eyebrows over his WTF suggestion on a TV program six months ago that baby girls should be covered head-to-toe in burqas to protect them from sexual assault.
