There’s been a lot of debate lately about what is and is not appropriate to critique on the internets. The short answer is: anything’s up for grabs, and if you don’t believe me try reading 4chan for five minutes. The long answer is: I don’t know where the line is, but I know when somebody crosses it.
One of the worst things you can do is criticize the physical appearance of children. I know that every time Perez Hilton says something mean about Sadie Sandler it makes me hate him that much more, and I already hate him a lot.

But what if the babies are already grown? Once someone’s an adult, is it fair game to go back and criticize them for having been a weird or odd looking child? It’s a rule that very cute babies often grow up to be strange looking people, and sometimes the ugliest babies make the most gorgeous grown ups. It’s also just funny to see what they looked like as kids because (massive plastic surgery aside) most faces don’t change that much.

Anyway, since Alex has gone off his rocker like John Rocker it’s been entirely up to me to maintain the integrity and good standing of This Recording. Alex’s head just exploded when he read that sentence. Don’t worry about it though. He has a cabinet full of interchangeable heads with different expressions, like Mombi.
Baby Oprah = Boprah?
And he told this horrible Obambi site to take his piece down, as he is not anti-Obama. He’s not pro-Hitler, either. He is just anti-everything. He’s a libertarian! It doesn’t mean I am. I mean, we could potentially put everything sarcastic in comic sans or italics but that might just make things more confusing, don’t you think?
