Ugly Babies

I'm unsure about ugly babies.

For those who don’t believe me, there is such a thing as an ugly baby, and beauty is not always in the eye of the beholder. Some things are just factually ugly.

I feel sorry for ugly babies because for the rest of their lives their parents will show ugly baby pictures to everyone they bring home and hang ugly baby pictures on the walls of their house. You can’t live that down.

One the other hand, if it’s an ugly boy and he grows up to be a hottie instead of a nottie girls from the neighborhood will say, “Wow, that Joey. He used to be such an ugly baby but look at him now!” The ladies love that kind of thing.

I thought for a long time about what the most insulting thing someone could say to someone else is. This is what I came up with:

“Man, you have a really ugly kid.”

Elaine called the ugly baby "Breathtaking" on Seinfeld.

I'm sure Tim was breathtaking as a baby...

No, the baby's Dr. called the ugly baby breathtaking and then called Elaine breathtaking and she didn't know how to take it.
