11 Points + 400 ManBabies

This week has been a monumental week for ManBabies.com.  On top of reaching 400 ManBabies (making us probably the largest collection of ManBabies around) and getting our twitter account back, we had the honor of co-writing a post for the super awesome blog 11points.com!

ManBaby Rejects

I’ve been seeing a nice tradition of ManBabies being sent in that don’t really meet what we are looking for (you know, like tall, dark, handsome, etc.), and feel that even though they don’t fit the site, I’d still like to show case them. Welcome to that first show case of ManBaby Rejects!

One of the rules that we strongly suggest is that you do a picture you own, or at least one of a friend, ex-boss, whatever. This is because we want an original picture, and also, we don’t want to get sued. It’s mostly because we don’t want to get sued. But we understand that not everybody has a buddy with a baby that we can embarrass on the internet, so they have to resort to the next best thing: grabbing a pic of a dude with a baby and manbabying it.

And we present the source image:

Father Holding Baby

A nice stock photograph of a Father and a Baby. Or we assume it’s a father, but for all we know this is a hired model, and the “real dad” is safely out of the camera’s view. Either way, this picture makes for an easy ManBaby.   On to the offenders!

Now, I’ll admit that in my naivity, I posted the first one I received on the site @ http://manbabies.com/content/134.  Whoops.  Here’s the image:

Honest mistake, I swear.  Well, I recieved the same picture from Derober (http://www.derober.com/) not too long afterward, and I started to get suspicious.

“Ok”, I thought to myself, “maybe they just know the same good looking guy and baby, and thought his picture would make a good addition to manbaby history.”  Sigh, how could I ever be so young and trusting.  It wasn’t long after that I recieved another one from Kasen W.

Manbaby - Kasen W

Alright, after I got this one, I got the idea.  Since then, I’ve gotten one more manbaby using this picture, from Jasper A.  Let me just say that I give Jasper credit for putting a nice spin on this one, although it is an image that will haunt your every waking moment until the end of time:

ManBaby - Jasper A

I especially love how the baby’s face looks like a plastic doll face on the man’s body. *shudders*.

Well, that’s it for this installment, look for more in the future!

A Makeover and Snacks!

If you are a returning visitor to ManBabies.com, you may have noticed some slight differences.  I had some free time over this break, so I decided to give the design some touch-ups.  No more gray gradients! Made a couple of other additions/changes to the site, no biggie though.

Nothing too awesome, just not as ugly.

While we are in this mood to change, what kind of additions would you like to see on the site?  Any ideas or suggestions, just leave your comment here and we will look at them.

The current schedule for ManBabies is two for YourTurnTuesday, and maybe one from us every once in awhile (we are being lazy, yes!), so keep sending ones you make to submit@manbabies.com with a subject of “We Did It” to get it up on the site!

Also, be sure to check out our other project, Kookies and Kreme!, where we have fun with photoshop and MS Paint, and try to be decent humor writers. 

This is the kind of fun stuff you\'ll get at kookiesandkreme.com!

You see this picture?  It makes no sense.  It just is.  Just go to http://kookiesandkreme.com already!

Stay cool,

Kris/Kookies!

Announcment!

Hey everybody!  Thanks for coming to the site!  We enjoy all the submissions, keep sending them in!

This is just to let you know that we will only be posting pictures that you did for this next week, so there will be one a day instead of the usual two.  Why, you may ask?
Well, I’m going to be gone for the next week, and don’t want to be disturbed *cough*honeymoon*cough*, but things should get back to normal on the 14th.

100 ManBabies!

Today, the 100th ManBaby was posted! Glorious day!

Almost two months in now, and we would like to thank everybody that has supported our weird but laughable  affinity towards ManBabies.  We also want to tell you to keep coming back! We don’t want you to miss out on any of the ManBaby fun!

To all who have submitted pictures: Thanks!  Keep it up!  We are going to keep posting them, so keep a watchful eye!

FAQ and Rules!

Can I submit manbabies that I have made?
Yes, send it to submit@manbabies.com with a subject line of:
We Did it!“.
Please read “What are the guidelines for a ManBaby?” posted further down before sending in your submission.

Can I submit a picture for you guys to do?

Currently, this is not done regularly due to time constraints.  However, if you  would like to have a manbaby personally made for you, we can do that for $15 a pop(baby?) via paypal.  Contact kris@manbabies.com with a subject line of  “Personal Manbaby Request” for more details.

I’ve submitted a picture, but I haven’t seen it on the site yet. What gives?
It’s not you, it’s me. But seriously, we have a pretty good backlog and we plan on getting through everything eventually, so keep submitting strong. Also, make sure that your submission is up to snuff with the guidelines below.

How will I know if you posted the picture we sent in?
Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to emails or notify people of a post because of the amount that we get. Our suggestion is to keep coming back to the site, or subscribe to it in an rss feed reader (it’s really easy, just go here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Manbabies and add it).

I have important information for you! Where do I send it?
If you want to give us money, or would like to talk business or media related issues, send your inquiry to admin@manbabies.com and we will get back to you asap.

What are the guidelines for a ManBaby?

  • The picture MUST have both a man and a baby. Man + baby = ManBaby. Get it?
  • The picture should be atleast 400 pixels on it’s largest side (I personally like the number 550px, so if you have already made a manbaby to post, it’s appreciated if you size that as the largest dimension).
  • It would help if you named your ManBaby picture with your full name. Just a suggestion.
  • For pictures submitted to be done, we need most of the face of both the man and baby to be unobscured, although we can work some magic on it.
  • Nothing in a distasteful nature, please.

What is YOUR TURN TUESDAY?
You Turn Tuesday (YTT) is a day that we post 3 pics that you, the viewers, have made.  In addition to YTT, we try to post 1 pic that you have made and 1 pic that we have made on the other days of the week.
Basically,  YTT is a day that lets us get out of making a manbaby by posting more of your ManBabies.
You can send us the pictures that you have made any day of the week, just put “We Did it!” as the subject line and send it to submit@manbabies.com!

As we come up with more stuff to put here, this post will be updated.
