Confession time: for most of our adult lives, the two of us mistakenly believed that human babies were delivered by storks. Recently, however, we both read an eye-opening biological treatise on human reproduction called Fifty Shades of Gray. Turns out that having a baby is a whole lot different (and messier) than we’d originally thought. Who knew!?
Which brings us to this week’s HUMAN/NATURE comic. One of the things, we’ve often noticed is that once a person has a baby, chances are they’re gonna bring that lil’ bundle of joy/poop in to work for a quick visit. It’s a way for co-workers who already have kids to publically “ohhhh” and “ahhh”, while secretly thanking their lucky fallopian tubes they don’t have to scrape projectile baby vomit off the ceiling anymore. At the same time, co-workers who don’t have kids can pretend to be incredibly interested while secretly feeling their tingly bits shrivel in abject terror.
Yes, no one can really escape the baby office visit. Which is why we thought it would make a great subject for this week’s comic. Of course, if you’re at all interested in learning exactly where babies come from (with specific and graphic instructional details on which bits go where) you might want to give Fifty Shades of Gray a read. It’s no Where’s Waldo and doesn’t have any pictures, but it’s still shockingly informative.
Thanks for reading!
