IF: Baby

IF: Baby
This actually came from what happened the past weekend. My friends and I were playing this really great board game called "Apples to Apples", and I put "elitist" and "baby" together... We all thought the phrase "elitist baby" sounds so hilarious. But really, the word "baby" just sounds funny with pretty much any word in front of it. If you don't know what "gold plated diaper" mean, go to this link and watch it! It's my all time favorite, funniest SNL sketch ever! YAY!! MORE COWBELL!!

PS: "Apples to Apples" is really a very simple game but it's so much fun! The basic concept of the game is simple: you match the adjective card on the table with a noun or verb card from your hand that you think is the perfect (or funniest, or most ironic...whatever) match. But since each round of card matching is judged by a different player at the table, you can use it to your advantage to play a card that you know is a shoo-in for certain judges. It's great for a big party too.

The baby still looks rather sweet despite being a bit of a snob, if what you say is correct. Nice style and love the bird.

By far our most favorite game of all time! We play the junior version with the kids and found that we like it better than the original even if we are not playing with kids. I love your IF and chippie cam.

You've succeeded in making it funny, clever and sweet at the same time. I'm a fan of the bird, too.
