Oh, you took a photo of your kid last weekend? I’m real happy for you, and I’ma let you finish, but there are some dads out there shooting photos of their kids and blending them into other-worldly stuff who make us all look like chumps.
Suddenly the blurry pic of your kid on his trike seems meh.
Serge Bielanko, friend of the show, got some internet heat recently over this photo he posted back in July. It was one of many in a gallery for an article called Old Work Boots & Camouflage Cargos: How NOT To Let Your Man Fall Out Of Fashion. Not long after his article was published, the photo was featured on Babble’s Facebook page where MOMS ATTACKED.
Serge is a caring writer and loving father. The initial comments were prejudice, hateful and dug into his soul. “What the heck were these people so upset about? Did they not read my article? I’m HER DAD!”, he wrote in a followup piece. Is it fair to judge a person because of a single picture? Absolutely not. But it is a photo… on the internet.
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. This one is worth about two: “f*ck that”.
George Takei posted this photo over on his Facebook page about four hours ago. Now I realize George had nothing to do with the creation of this photo and has no real emotional attachment to it, so I’m taking it to the 8BD. He usually shares some really silly, funny and sometimes poignant photos. Being the sensitive, tight butthole that I am – I didn’t find this one funny at all.
First of all, this ain’t my house. It reminds me of that Hyundai Azera commercial with the dad that couldn’t control his sh*t, only this time it’s mom. Take that, moms!
Take a cruise around Instagram and if you didn’t know it already, you’ll soon learn that parents love to take pictures of their babies. You’ll also learn what baby ears look like, because babies have this crazy way of knowing when you’re about to snap a shot and turn their heads. Two Brazilian fathers found a great way for parents to get great photos of their babies’ faces, and you’d be surprised to learn their inspiration for their new iPhone app, Baby Pic.
We’ve also got one code for Baby Pic lyin’ around and will give it to one of you readers (see details after the review)!
