What ELSE Should the Internet Have Empire Strikes Back Reveal Kid React To?
October 7, 2011

Don’t get me wrong, y’all. The above video of one kid’s legitimately adorable reaction to the climactic reveal in The Empire Strikes Back is worthy of its viral status. I mean, it’s basically a ticking ovary time bomb of cold-fusion cuteness. But wouldn’t the parents rather experience such a moment without the filter of a Flip Cam, or do parents just record and upload anything to YouTube these days? I don’t know. I didn’t write the chapter on making your child a momentary internet super star, which is good, because it’d look like this:

  1. Sparkle!
  2. More Dolls!

Patty Duke would be proud, but Children’s Services? Not so much, but I digress.

As I was saying, this being the internet, when Videogum’s Kelly joked that it’ll be great to start recording childrens’ reactions to every movie (like David Fincher’s Se7en, for example), the internet must naturally abide:


Sadie Says, “You Can Do Anything”
April 25, 2011

While I recognize that this video’s apparently a few years old, Monday mornings are always the best time for adorable video affirmations, so who are you to really disagree? Take it away, Sadie:

I’m sorry, but if that doesn’t hit you like a roundhouse kick of cuteness and youthful optimism straight to your baby maker, either you’re helpless or my fake ovaries (fauxvaries, if you will) are acting up (blame it on the Coldplay poster) and channeling one of my favorite scenes from Mean Girls:

Things Upon Which Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner and an Actual Baby Can Agree: Miley Cyrus
March 23, 2010

I usually imagine that about the only thing babies and I share in common is a failure to be discerning with what we should put in our mouths.  Seriously, if you put a handful of dusty Planter’s Cheez Ball between me and a baby, there would be a bitch vs. baby throw down to see who could snatch them up.  Otherwise, though, I’m pretty sure the only thing babies and I could agree upon is that there are a whole lot of bare breasts Showgirls, but guess which one of us actually finds that enthralling.

Anyways, this baby proves me wrong by having a response to Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA” that’s only slightly less visceral than my own:

I would’ve hurled myself straight out of that damn baby prison high chair, but that’s just me.

On a tangential note, I hope science can figure out what makes this baby hate Miley Cyrus so much, at which point science then institutes a policy making it a prerequisite in all of our Gattaca mail order babies.  But again, that’s just me.

Much love to Best Week Ever for the find.

Hold on to Your Ovaries, ‘Cos Here’s a Baby Lamb Jumping Around a House
March 22, 2010

After watching this video, a part of me wants to rethink my feelings about lamb chops in the same way watching Babe always causes me to have a crisis of bacon.  While I recognize I wouldn’t make a particularly pleasant or even remotely successful vegetarian, it’s hard to not feel guilty about taking such pleasure in eating something so adorable.

But then I remember the lamb chops:


Sometimes You Just Need a Norwich Terrier

Work weeks are tough, and the times are scary, y’all; but doesn’t this just make everything seem better?

Yes. Yes it does.
