Baby-mugging-mommy-shorts

I don't want to throw the word VIRAL around loosely, but let's just say, Baby Mugging has gone a wee bit out of control. I thought we were done with Baby Mugging at the end of last week, but it seems the rest of the world is just catching on.

I applaud us, fellow moms of the internet. When are we ever ahead of these things?

It's also pretty cool how most of the news outlets are crediting me, because this is the kind of thing that can just take off on its own.

Baby Mugging has been featured on Mashable, Today.com, The Huffington Post, The Stir, Sodahead, Babble and my favorite Know Your Meme, which chronicles the origin of Baby Mugging like it's a noteworthy historical event. They got facts right even I had forgotten!

I also like a post on The Happy Place called "Bored Moms of Instagram are 'Baby Mugging'".

First sentence: 

"A trend started by bored mom Ilana Wiles of the blog Mommy Shorts has gone viral. It involves photographing your baby so that she looks like she has replaced the coffee you drink to deal with the exhaustion she causes."

You know you've arrived when you're the subject of snark!

So, in order to keep up with the trend and because I have NOTHING ELSE IN MY BORING LIFE TO DO, I'm posting a new batch of favorites (for the first batch click here) including many variations on the theme.

Ever heard of Babe Mugging? Yep, it was started by Playboy yesterday. Nothing forces your husband to admit your meme is legit like being imitated by the magazine he masturbated to when he was twelve.

Ummmm… HOLY CRAP. I was just in the middle of writing this post while watching Jimmy Kimmel Live and I KID YOU NOT— Baby Mugging was just featured!!!! I'm not even sure how to process this information while sitting alone in my living room with everyone else asleep.

THANK GOD I HAVE ALL OF YOU GUYS!!!!

Wait. Somehow Baby Mugging on Jimmy Kimmel just transitioned into a shot of Martin Short's penis.

Wow. I'm gonna get on with things because clearly, I'm hallucinating and should be in bed. (FYI- It's the next morning. I rewatched. I was not hallucinating.)

Carrying on.

Here is "THE BEST OF BABY MUGGING: PART TWO"…
