What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Kids Aren’t Alright:

All the single babies, all the single babies!

DISCLAIMER: Today’s post isn’t for anyone who likes babies, Catholics, art, breastfeeding, or Jesus. It’s also not recommended for children, adults, the overly-sensitive, religious people, or anyone with eyes.

I stumbled upon the Tumblr Ugly Renaissance Babies totally by accident, and then fell down a deep, dark, hilarious, very wrong rabbit hole. I’m not going to explain. I’m just going to show you the cleaner ones that made me howl. It’s up to you whether or not you go exploring the rabbit hole yourself. Just don’t do it at work.

NOTE: Although I’d love to take credit, all the brilliant captions are from Ugly Renaissance Babies!

  6. My husband and I totally guffawed our way through these. They reminded me of a time in a Belgian church where I had to make a quick exit because I was about to explode from trying to stifle giggles over some ecclesiastical triptych. Clearly there is a rich seam of comedy in these grotesque paintings.
