Which is Creepier?


Please. Can the 2 to 10 people that may or may not read this blog on occasion please weigh in on the following:

Which is creepier? The New Year's Baby or the Cupid Baby? I have my opinion all ready to dish, but I don't want to influence anyone's leanings, so I will save my thoughts until the end. Or, until I've waited long enough for no one to officially respond. [Note to Mike Peck: Now I know you're reading, buddy...cough up some bills from that chain wallet already.]

Well, cupid is kind of an angel, right? In your picture, bitch has wings.

So: I think New Years baby is creepier. Because he's a human baby with an affinity for top hats. And who chooses a sash over a diaper, dude? He has use/usefulness issues. Where are his parents?

Well, the pedophiliac nature of the Cupid baby is slightly disturbing. Romantic love + baby = mental illness, excepting only when said baby is the outcome of romantic love. The mythological Cupid was not a baby. Besides, what freak toddler has the forearm strength to pull the string on a bow? However, the New Year's baby is slightly more appropriate if you take "new" for it's humanesque connotation.

The predatory nature of Cupid is what disturbs me most. A naked, winged baby hunting me down with arrows is a terrifying thought. And not just any arrows, LOVE arrows, which are the most dangerous kind. Also, everyone hates that friend who keeps trying to set them up with people. No, I don't want to go on a date your friend's friend's coworker. Now imagine that annoying person, but as a child armed with medieval weaponry and wings.

The New Year's baby is kind of weird in that he/she wears a top hat and a diaper. That's like wearing a bowtie with a speedo--it just doesn't make any sense. Also, Baby New Year is always hanging around with an old man who carries a scythe. But still, at least it's a normal baby, not some winged abomination like something from Dr. Moreau's island.

Verdict: Die cupid die!

Not even close. Cupid looks disturbingly fey and way too happy about shooting people in the heart with a barbed projectile. Toss in the fact that he's trusted to use a hunting weapon safely but not to refrain from crapping himself, and I say he's the greater hazard by far.

Random fact I picked up yesterday: Cupid's a putto, not a cherub. (Putti are the winged babies; cherubs are a class of angel.)

Not bad for a chain-wallet guy, says I.

I'm going to have to agree with the chain wallet. Not least because I'm not sure of the New Year's baby's purpose. Come to think of it, I'm not sure of Cupid's purpose either. Still, I find it particularly creepy that a fat little guy who regularly shits himself somehow feels he has the authority to shoot me, someone who stopped shitting himself months ago, with an arrow. And what kind of devious son of a bitch thinks inflicting a mortal wound--and arrow to the heart--is any kind of way to give a dude leverage enough to smooth talk his way into a chick's underpants? But mostly, I find it a creepy that a little baby is thinking about sex at all. I just watched Rob Zombie's Halloween the other night, and I feel the similarities between Cupid and little Mikey Myers are striking.

Chalk me up for creepy in the cupid column.

All these men joining in your robust debate ...I feel like you've stepped into the kitchen.

On the lighter side, I like both of them. The New Year's baby signifies the birth of another year ~~ a fresh start. Not big on Valentine's celebrations but it is an opportunity to stop and say I love you ~~ can't say that often enough. Cupid signifies being struck by the arrow of love and that is wonderful. So leave these "little people" alone. There are bigger fish to fry!!

I'm going to have to say the cupid baby because of the whole hair thing... I've never seen baby new year with hair... and it seems more adorable.

Definitely Cupid is scarier.
He represents the lack of personal control over our actions. He is one of the Fates, making the decision of whom we love. He creeps me the fuck out.

The New Year baby represents the opposite than Old Man Last Year does..new year baby is rebirth. A chance to start over. Out with the old, in the new. I like him.

cupid must be destroyed, especially that wretched '80s bad yellow hair cupid you've presented. he looks like James Spader's character in Pretty in Pink, and he is ooging me out. go away, icky cupid baby. for the last time, I will not date you.
