demographic of I-Mockery.com ages, there are bound to be changes in
both readership and content. Gone will be the salad days of yore when
you could gambol about freely reading article on 80's video games,
'hating' on various 'scenes' and trying to find out what the hell
'salad days' are. You may already be finding more serious matters
taking up the time you once spent working on a keen ride for the pine
box derby, trying to find a date for the Junior Formal and
buttonholing the old man for a hand out and the car keys. Why, by the
time you read this, buttonholing old men may be illegal in most
Take a moment and look to your left. That sweet little girl next door
it seems like you were goin' steady with just last week sure has
swelled up into some unholy mood swing piņata! Whoa there sport! Don't
blindfold yourself and beat her senseless with a stick just yet! She's
no fatso, and that ain't candy in there! The little lady is going to
have a baby, and chances are it's yours!
This is a baby. You are in some serious trouble.

I guess it's too late to tell you that when a Mommy and Daddy love
each other very much, some pretty terrible things can happen, one of
which is children. That horse has already left the station and there's
no use closing the barn door either, because you burned that door when
you got married without protection. You have no one to blame but
yourself, but don't worry! In less than nine months you'll have
someone to blame for the rest of your life and for much of that time
they won't be able to take you in a fight!
But you can't blame somebody if they don't have a name! Don't you wish
you'd thought of that before you got yours? Now the pressure is on.
How to decide? There are literally SEVEN HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN NAMES OUT
THERE! How do you pick the one that will grate on your nerves the
least once you've said it several million times, usually in
conjunction with phrases like "Your finger doesn't go there", "That's
not what God made the cat for!" and "Must you set everything on fire?"
Luckily for you, I'm here! No, not your computer, me, ME the actual
living human being who created this content! I'm a real person with
real feelings and emotions and needs, but that's not what you came
here for is it? No, all you want are the damn BABY NAMES! Which is
good, because if you were looking for duck hunting tips, you'd be in
the wrong article.
This baby got named 'Dave'. Know what he has in common
all the other babies named Dave? He hates his parents.

WARNING TO PARENTS WHO THINK
recent years there has been a growing tendency amongst Hippies,
Celebrities and the Negro Community to think they can avoid the perils
of baby naming by making up new names. While amusing to parents,
someday 'Apple' Paltrow is going to fill a pillowcase with cans of
Fanta and beat her mother to death with it. 'Suri' Cruise will do much
the same thing, but not because of her name which is really the least
of her worries. In addition, the people most likely to think saddling
a baby with a unique name is a good idea are the same people who are
most likely to come up with a unique name being chosen at the exact
same moment by dozens of other idiot parents just like them. So, in
closing, I give you a list of seemingly unique baby names you should
STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM because people are going to use them.
Boy Baby Names
Any name with a number where a letter should be
Girl Baby Names
Anything in text message shorthand
Androgynous Baby Names
This baby is named Lester. He wants you to go
the hell away.
