The Canonical List of Dead Baby Jokes

I'm distrubed that I'm not shocked.

And what the hell is with people posting like they're a down's patient having a seizure? Sure Jeff K's good for a laugh every now and then, but this is getting a little weird...

Oh my word, I think I'll go vomit now, thanks B0rg9

"...artist Zhu Yu shows off photographs of himself washing a dead stillborn baby in a sink and putting its dismembered parts in his mouth. Shortly after, he'll be dismembered alive and fed to the studio audience."

Skwidd: Between laughing at dead babies and that tard blog that never made it out of TF there's the makings for a decent flame war.

Pass the salt.....

Mmmmmmmmmm - Dead babies
2002-12-31 03:09:12 PM  
Well they are dead.......
If they were alive, that would be horrible.
2002-12-31 03:09:28 PM  
I think Snopes has already declared this baby-eating thing a host. I may go check a little later.
2002-12-31 03:09:38 PM  
And I thought German art was messed up.

Perhaps this helps dental hygiene?

Must be tough to chew with a mouthful of rotting teeth.
2002-12-31 03:11:53 PM  
Baby flesh. Tasty.

I keep thinking that could be a name of a punk rock group:

Dead Baby Eaters
2002-12-31 03:12:54 PM  
I was thinking about the art world this morning on my drive to work (I've had a cold for the past couple weeks, so I'm totally lucid, probably why).. and the following thought occured to me.. "Why can't modern artists create something that isn't designed to shock or titilate?".. clearly that's all this "art" is meant to do.. aren't there other emotions artists could be exploring? I think modern art has become lazy, and is worse than the subjects they claim to be "protesting" against... TV is more intelectual than the current art scene..
2002-12-31 03:12:55 PM  
I don't know who is more sick. The guy who eats the stillborn baby, or the mother who gave the baby to this guy.
2002-12-31 03:13:03 PM  
This is little old, I saw that picture of the "baby-eating" about a year ago. Snopes declared this type of hoax. The artist only used a TOY baby DOLL.
2002-12-31 03:13:27 PM  
I don't know about cannabilism as art, but it's been funny in Britain for some time:

"Are you suggesting we eat my mother?"

"Yeah... not raw. Cook her up with some shallots, some broccoli. Delicious!"

"Well, I do feel a bit peckish, but, no. I couldn't."

"Look, here's what we'll do: We'll eat your mum, and if your feeling a bit guilty about it afterward, we'll dig a grave and you can throw up into it."
2002-12-31 03:13:28 PM  
You're supposed to eat out your baby, not eat babies!

Pass the Courvoisier!!

2002-12-31 03:13:39 PM  
Anybody who says America is screwed up after reading this is probably just saying it for attention. :)
2002-12-31 03:13:45 PM  
"Politicians and media critics have condemned the plans but the Broadcasting Standards Commission said it could not address a program before it was shown."

that seems a tad illogical.

I don't see this as being any different than having to sit through anything on NBC's "Must See TV", and I've had a baby. Sorry.

TV has always been misused.

Complete LOL at Pantagrapher, esp. with food shortages in China. But think of all the stem cells that went to waste.

"Hey, Debbie -- I have something for you."

"What is it?"

"A book."

"What's it called?"

"A Modest Proposal."

"Who's it by?"

"Jonathan Swift."

"What's it about?"

"Eatin' babies."
2002-12-31 03:14:26 PM  

Snopes didn't call it a host. It is, however, a hoax. Zhu Yu is eating a fake baby. He's done it before. Why, I don't know.

Baby: The other white meat.
2002-12-31 03:15:13 PM  

I couldn't agree with you more. Well said. Modern art has become a joke.

2002-12-31 03:18:32 PM  
Think of the money he'll save on toddler straight jackets!
2002-12-31 03:19:35 PM

That's very sad, very sad. I hope it's not true.

Nabb1 What's that from?
2002-12-31 03:19:55 PM  
Ya know, I was || this close to making a joke, but even for me, this is too much.
"People! It's made from people!"

There are maybe 10 images of this "art" at Gotta scroll back several pages. I don't remember what the images are called, but they have descriptions. Warning! goregasm is not for the faint of heart....unless you only click the pr0n images.
