Beware the Cry of the Colicky

Below are three artists’ renderings of the creatures solely known as “Night Babies,” or as the latins call them — “Nocturnas Infantis.” They sleep in hives during the day and at night take flight into the sky, raiding nests for midnight snacks. There are several species of night baby, a result of evolution via the effects of our ever-changing environment... They often can be coaxed into a powerful “Jaws of Death™” trap by simply using butterscotch pudding as bait. A super soaker fueled with holy water is often the weapon of choice amongst baby hunters. If you ever encounter one of these diapered demons, proceed with caution and at all costs avoid eye contact. If you are feeling a bit adventurous as you wander off into the night for some mild exercise, do make sure that you wear a rutabaga necklace soaked in Dawn liquid soap mixed with concentrated Ovaltine, just to ward off any unwelcome swoopers. More renderings will be posted as they become available...

Okay, the one eating the squirrel looks just like my wife's last ultrasound!! What do I do? I guess I will have to accept the fact that I may be a groupie at carnival sideshows, cheering on my kid as he/she/it geeks all manner of small creatures? Since you guys seem light on ideas how about a look at what these munchkins will look like in 30 years? Give me something to cling to...
