Adorable Baby Videos Could Cure All the World’s Ills (And Kim Jong-ils)


Adorable Baby Videos Could Cure All the World’s Ills (And Kim Jong-ils)

In my bummed out state here in the hospital, I have tried to gain perspective on how my life only mildly sucks by remembering far bigger tragedies in the world, such as the ongoing devastation in Japan and, oh yeah, the radiation plume headed right towards me and my family in L.A. So, yeah, I got perspective all right. Perspective out my potentially radioactive wazoo.

Let’s face it: Sometimes when you’re feeling down, what you really need is an adorable, laugh-out-loud video of a baby reacting to his mom’s booger-blowing technique.

That’s what I’m talkin’ about. This bedridden mama needs less perspective, more giggles. Heck, this video would even make Kim Jong-il kick off his platform shoes, tearfully declare Make More Cute Baby Videos, Not Nuclear War!, then point to the screen and ask, ‘‘Gain? ‘Gain? (just as my daughter would say, nodding her head and leading my hand to the remote control for the twentieth time).

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
