"Quiet! You'll Wake The Baby!"

What's up people?

So yeah, I was noticeably absent yesterday. Well shit, it was St.Pat's after all, so I was off drinking and partaking in some green.

I hope you all had a good weekend/St.Pat's yourselves, whether you were Irish or not.

I don't know about you guys, but lately I'm noticing more and more of my friends having kids.
Don't ask me why, must because of spring or something. But yeah, I can't seem to avoid hearing about all these new kids sprouting up like weeds all of a sudden.

Jealous? No. I've always been upfront that I'm more a fun uncle-type than a parent. Hey, at least I'm honest. Some people are meant to have kids; others not so much.

Anyhoo, this is an ode of sorts to that type thing. You know how it is, you don't get what all the big fuss about little Johnny or Susie spitting up on their onesie, or how they cute in such and such outfit.
You humor them unless you're generally interested, and you move on, hoping to steer the conversation away from kids.

Not going happen, especially if their new parents.
New Parents/Friends of new parents, this skit's for you:

Exactly. It's all the kids' fault;)

-Barbarianaut comes from the OMFG line of toys, out now. 
Just go here to find a good bunch of them:

Plus they have their own Facebook page as well, so give 'em a look-see.

-The other purple alien is an old plastic alien guy from my youth. Don't ask me where or why I still have him, but I do apparently.

Cannot stand kids myself - its all the crying. Actually I kinda like the crying - it means the little swines are getting some righteous punishments somewhere.
SO glad I don't have children, but youre right; everywhere one turns, it seems everyone has kids. No wonder theyr all driven mad.

@Exactly. Whitney Houston said children are our future. Maybe her's(well not now obviously), but damn sure not mine.

Keep the little ankle-biters at home, especially at place not intended for them.

And don't get me wrong. Kids are fine....as long as the unruly ones stay the fuck away from me. Don't punish me because you were to cheap/drunk/lazy to pull out or wear a condom. Not my problem.

But yeah, it seems any friends I have/had left that didn't have kids, is either now expecting, or just had 'em. Crazy.

But, but, but...... Barbarianaut looks like a M.U.S.C.L.E. figure I used to have- I'm pretty sure they swiped the idea- or it's "inspired by".
As for the other guy. I have! It's a Diener eraser figure from the 80's.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J7KwgJ1DAE @ 3:55 minutes in. -If you want to know more... I talk about them for about 3 minutes. But yeah- he's based on The Fly and is worth up to $10. -Not too shabby. THE MORE YOU KNOW!
-Stupid kids... glad I never had/will have any!

@King: Oh yeah, he definitely is. Charles Marsh and his crew make custom figures out of old MOTU/MUSCLE figures. You should really check out his facebook page here:

I did not know that about that purple guy I got. Know that you said it, I definitely can see the resemblance to the 80's remake of the Fly now.

And worth 10$? Hmmmmm

As far as kids go. I don't hate them hate them. They have their place of course, and we were all kids and one point. Hell I still am to a degree obviously;)

I've heard it said that kids are like farts; you only really like your own. True, very true.

I'm an adult and I still like my action figures, not just the little soldiers Robert De Niro had in Ronin. I'm talking real fully possible action figures. I pose em display em in cycles then come over to your house and read funny ass skits about em.
