Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I've decided to make Sundays my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I thought I would re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.


Original Post Date, May 26, 2009

I have about 300+ cable channels but really only watch about 10 of them. Every once in a while, I start flipping through channels to see what else is out there.

I've decided that my new favorite channel is BBC America. If it's weird or somehow taboo, they do a documentary on it. The best has been a show called My Fake Baby. It follows the lives of women who "adopt" these lifelike dolls or reborns, as they're called and treat them like they're real babies. They brush their hair, change their diapers and stroll them around town. One even bought a $300 outfit to bring the baby home in.

They also feature a woman who creates the dolls. It's disturbing how real these dolls look but the most disturbing thing is how the people who own them treat them like they're alive. Talk about issues..

Since I don't have any children of my own and I have lots of issues, I thought maybe I should look into adopting my own reborn. I think this one looks the most like me.


  1. I never heard about these fake babies before...


    Wonder if they have fake grandkids?

    You are too funny, tho.

  2. That's a tad....creepy. I think I'm your newest follower. You are quite funny. Must begin stalking.

  3. As a woman with no kids and probably no chance of ever having any..this is too freaky even for me! Its amazing work though, they do look real but come on ladies this is a bit strange.BTW, you are a very cute baby!

  4. I think she has your eyes... lol
    Those dolls look eerily realistc, reminds me a bit of chucky, I have no idea why... Maybe it's my fear that one of them is going to jump out of my screen wielding a butcher's knife or some other freakishly big knife *cringes visibly*. Weird much?!

  5. That first one just freaked me out.

  6. Hey Chrissy. Yes, good grief - issues, issues, issues. Unsettling. Indigo

  7. Wow... these baby looked extermely real! I really like your blog. :)

  8. I think they look so real it could be a science fiction movie!


  9. This is (by far) the most disturbing thing I've read today.

    God, those babies look real! Now, I'm gonna have to Google it.

    thanks for that. Dammit.


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
