Marzipan Babies

Does anyone else find this creepy? I'm assuming the person who started a false claim that these thing are made of Marzipan must have thought so too, and the only way to make it creepier is to imagine eating it....
Snopes discredits this claim, but then when you venture to the website it gets really weird. The only people I can imagine buying these things are ladies that really want babies but can't have them, so they carry a fake, but life-like one around to placate themselves.
Strange
I can't seem to get the picture up, so you'll have to go to the link to see what I'm talking about.

those little humans are friggin' scary. I've seen Marzipan pigs that i didn't want to eat, and now this? yikes.

How'd they get that hair on there?

remember that time you got really trashed on new years in KC and kept saying, "i vomited fetuses!"

It's kinda like that!

These really are made of clay, and it's mohair on their heads, good for sweaters, baaaad for babies...

That was a BIZARRE movie, weird! I didn't think anyone else saw that besides me!
Yikes
and they weren't really made out of Marzipan, dude, if you read the article on Snopes you would have seen that someone made a fake email about it, it was a sick joke based on a sick creation.

OMIGOD!!!!

L-A-F-F Riot!!!!

And i did read the article, but i thought they said that the pictures weren't marzipan, but that the creations were similar....
maybe i didn't read it correctly.

but those babies were still damn creepy.

` None of the pictures at Snopes will even load up! The internet is going sooooooo sloooow for me. It's about 5x slower. It's like having a REGULAR MODEM!
` I think my computer must have some sort of sickness left over from the virus it had. :(

Amber said...

sounds like it, my da had a bad virus too, it totally erased his internet application.

Aaron said...

Don't worry quine, the pictures will come up sunni or later. You should put your computer inside a garbage bag...hdad to prevent viral infection.

Amber said...
