We were with friends in Frederick, MD a while back and we decided to stroll along the street and enjoy the shops. As we passed some outdoor brunchers, we noticed a stroller positioned with its grumpy baby facing us.
Friend: "That baby looks just like Winston Churchill!"
Baby's parents: *GLARE*
Friend's wife: "Shhhh!"
Friend, getting louder: "But he does! He looks just like Winston Churchill!!"
Baby's parents now *SHOOTING DAGGERS* while the rest of us drag our friend away.
In his defense, the baby did look just like Winston Churchill and not even Winston Churchill in a complimentary shot, like the one above. Not all babies look like Winston Churchill but this one sure did.
I share with you this true story, Gentle Reader, to get to today's question:
How ugly does a baby have to be before you can comment on it?
