Mmm… Baby Pie

This is why I love the ladies at Negative Entropy:

    OK, I really LOVE the Friendly Atheist website, BUT…. does anyone else think that the “atheists eat babies” joke is getting old?

    I mean, I’m all in favor of laughing at the bizarre ideas and fears that believers have about us atheists, but I just don’t find the baby-eating stuff to have much humor value.

    Do others find this meme funny/enjoyable?

  • I think it’s funny every now and then, Peter. But I find cute baby pics more annoying than bad jokes, generally.

  • Nordog

    This is the only place I’ve ever heard anything about atheists eating babies. I just figured it’s something atheists had heard said about them and they decided to “own” it as a joke to illustrate how idiotic the charge is.

    Fair enough.

    But still, how often does one go to the well of humor before it runs dry (and I don’t mean dry humor)?

    EWWW!

    So… if you have a baby with a non-Indian, will it be considered fusion cooking?

    I don’t know… if you’re anything like me, it will start to freak you out a bit. There’s all kinds of baby- and child-related stuff I can’t deal with at all since my daughter was born. Also, I went through a period where every time I came across a story of something happening to a baby, I felt somehow compelled to read it even though I knew I was going to be depressed and useless for a while afterwards. That was pretty horrible.

  • I agree with Peter.

    Hey Hemant, can we give this thing a rest? It’s never been that funny, and it gets less so every time you use it.

    Is it really that difficult to scroll past the stuff you don’t like to read?

    No, you’re absolutely right. It is very easy to be apathetic. However, I must concur with the other posters that the baby eating jokes have been worn pretty thin. I contend that they greatly detract from the reading experience.

  • I didn’t even notice the whip cream and cherry before I thought to myself, “Damn! That baby really needs a change!”

    You can’t tell I’m a dad can you?

    Drew said “Is it really that difficult to scroll past the stuff you don’t like to read?”

    Well, I do LOVE this website, so yeah I will keep reading it regardless. BUT, I assume that Hemant likes constructive feedback from his readers.

    There have been baby-eating posts on 10-14-10, 10-16-10, and 10-23-10, so to me they are pretty frequent (especially when to me even the first time wasn’t particularly funny).

    For me, it dilutes the website from one where I enjoy almost every post, to being one where I enjoy a slightly lower percentage. Either way, I can deal with it.

    Assuming that the black and white part of the image is an actual photograph, I find this disturbing. This would be frightening to an older child, so why would it be OK for a baby?

  • Nerdette

    I’ve been reading for quite a while, and I still enjoy the baby-eating references. As long as the babies are in cute form, not distressed, living, etc. of course, I find it amusing. Symbolizing eating a dead baby takes it to that bad level.

  • Tasty!

    I vote for more baby-eating jokes. A healthy dose of satire never hurt anyone.

  • Not everyone can be pleased by everything all the time. To those who are burned out on baby-eating jokes, remember that there are new visitors to this site every day.
    Hemant’s got to have material for the newbies as well as the old-timers…

  • Liz

    I have a two month old, and I still enjoy a good baby-eating joke. In fact, i don’t find it disturbing at all.’

    It kind of reminds me of the saying, “you’re just so cute, I could eat you up”

    and this kid is so cute!!!

  • Always Phunny

    Mmm, dessert meat. Succulent. Love me some baby eating jokes. Continue, good sir. 🙂

  • Lisa

    Moar babies!

    Hemant don’t stop posting these because some people want to cry about it, the rest of us love it! No one’s making them look at it, they’ll get over it soon enough.

    😀 (<3 for the baby haters :3)

  • Karen

    Something tells me the baby’s mother might have an opinion or two about your baby being posed as the filling for an enchilada, the stuffing for a pie, etc.

    She’ll probably let you have one or two, but a whole blog? Doubtful.

    😉

    From the site: “**For anyone concerned, silverware was no where near the baby for the photograph”

    I like the eating babies meme. The Negative Entropy gals were asking where the meme comes from; does anyone know? Has Hemant been the most prominent promulgator of this meme?

  • One of the reasons I’d rather see the baby-eating posts go away is that they reek of desperation.

    “Oh, so someone called us atheists baby-eaters? Well, we’ll show them how many babies we can eat!” *uncomfortable laughter*

    We’re not reclaiming the n-word here, people.

  • Betsy

    Add another vote for getting rid of the baby eating jokes.

    They are so old and overdone.

  • Dan Covill

    Yet another vote for ending the baby-eating jokes. And while you’re at it, Hemant, replace that damned “looks the same right-side up as upside-down” logo with something humans can read.

  • Psst, that isn’t chocolate frosting.

  • Gilraen

    As an aside, Hemant, you DO know you are not going to have any babies, don’t you?

    Men having babies went out with Women’s Liberation in the 70’s. Before then, the newspaper birth announcements said “Born to Mr. Joe Smith, a baby girl, …….”

    Please grant your future wife the joy of having the baby, not you. 😉

    And yes, please cease the eat-a-baby jokes.

    @trixr4kids,
    thank you for clarifying that for me. Sorry it took me a while to get back here.
