She tch-tch-tch'ed at the roast baby like it's a cat. She's almost adorably awkward with the babies.

So where those babies sedated or what? Because it seems to me that a pile of babies in hot pie suits under blazing studio lights wouldn't be quite so placid unless they'd been fed a rather large jolt of Godfrey's Cordial.

Martha Stewart's own homemade baby food.

That's right, Martha Stewart's got the munchies for a California Cheeseburger.

oh come on, you stinking intellects. you act like none of you ever wanted to eat a baby before. god, you people make me sick.

i mean, come on, what the fuck are you expecting here? that she eats a full grown human? that is just stupid and gross; an adult would be so riddled with toxins and bad attitude and they tend to smell funny. which is why you shouldn't just not eat them, you shouldn't sleep with them either.




oops.

They'd look yummier if they were dead. Who eats live babies? You guys are SICK!

oh my god! That is hilarious, cute, totally wrong, fun, innocent-but-disturbed, enticing yet revolting and macabre all at the same time. And that's a hard combination to achieve.

In 18 years during a deep therapy session with his psychologist a young man recalls a distant early memory: Laying face up on a counter with Martha Stewart looking down at him with a spatula.

"Fuck you, Mom, you put me up the butt of a cloth lobster and stuck me in front of Martha Stewart!"

OH MY GOD!

FIrst off, this is just about two years old, but my roommate and his sister were working on Martha when this was shot, and I distinctly remember his coming home that night beaming with the creepiest Martha Stewart story ever.

Some things:

First, there was a bit of a mini-panic backstage trying to find a plain black t-shirt for the baby in the turkey suit. One of the P.A.s (or maybe another department) had a young child, and said she had a black baby T, but that they probably wouldn't want it. She was told that it would be fine, as the shirt would be covered up by the costume, but of course the kid was trying to get out of the turkey the whole time, which is why at 6:30 you can clearly read the baby's shirt as "I (heart) Boobies."

Secondly, my roommate's sister was staffed to special guest Rod Stewart this whole time, who was just sitting backstage, mouth agape, watching the live feed and repeating, "She's about to eat a baby!" over and over again.

Good times. I had totally forgotten about that story.

Sometimes SLYT posts are really great because of what they provide in the "related videos" area. In this case, this. And this.

The totally bizarre, almost random seeming soundtrack is what really makes that second one.

And this isn't just something they do to babies. They do it to Chihuahuas too.

Just so wrong on so many levels. Let's start with... advocating the use of 'construction foam' in baby costumes.

I watched this with my soon-to-be-wife. And after watching with our mouths hanging slightly open, we looked at each other in a moment of perfect understanding, and we said "adoption".

That was awesome[ly bizarre]. However, I must confess I originally expected this to relate somehow to Jonathan Swift.
