Ick.
Those stuffed toy things are the evil spawn of pedophilia and furries.
I need some eye bleach now...

I hope those "babes in the wild" do not become the beanie babies of 2006. I'm afraid of them.

Liz,
Is that your picture on the radio show announcement? Face with a name, finally!

Barbara Walters is receiving notice now that Rosie is going to be a pain in her side, and Barbara will regret hiring her. The View's view will definitely be gone.

BABES IN THE WILD: Now I know what gag gift to get my sister-in-law for her birthday - that hippo baby! But honestly, who needs a huggable unicorn-baby doll?! That's just weird. And those Halloween babies are creepy.

One wishes that "che" would turn his/her considerable talents for pointless bloviation towards other, more appropriate, endeavours, like writing press releases for Paris Hilton or Rosie O'Donnell, who, if it were not for the efforts of dear Ms. Kelly would fade from our collective consciousness.

Won't you help, che? Liz can't do it *all*!

Failing that, get a blog of your own, or consider drowning yourself.

Ew, ew, ew! Those toys must be for indoctrinating a new generation of Furverts. See http://pressedfur.coolfreepages.com/press/vanityfair/

Wonder what would burst forth if you tossed several of those creepy mutants -- perhaps Rory The Lion, Beautiful Show-Off Peacock Baby, and Big Red The Rooster Baby -- into a Skinner Box with a human infant and waited 5 or 10 or 15 years...

those babies are freaky. I wonder if they'll terrify my friend who's scared of animals dressed like people, i.e., Wegman's weimaraners.

Those babies are creepy. But Liz, this is what you buy as an "investment" instead of playing the stock market. You put them in your safety deposit box along with your Beanie Babies and Cabbage Patch dolls.
Of course, I have to admit I do have pajamas with garden trolls on them.

You can also dress your baby or toddler up like a "babe in the wild" using McCall 8938
or Simplicity 4001 patterns.
