Thursday Theatrics: Google Fails - Episode 1
I found a two-headed baby, you guys. Like, a baby. With two heads.
Recently, I Googled a certain kind of shampoo. I didn't do it for any weird reason - I had read a blog post about a particular type of shampoo, which just happens to be the same type Josephine uses. Her hair is super thick and super curly even though it's also super long, which often means ...
So this blog post I read was about carrying Head & Shoulders Shampoo while traveling, especially if you're traveling to climates other than your own. And I commented, saying that my daughter uses that shampoo brand as well - but that she uses the 2-in-1, and that she particularly liked ...
WAIT? WHAT SCENT WAS IT AGAIN?
So I googled, "Head & Shoulders two in one," switched over to images so I could just pick out the one that looks like my daughter's shampoo, and look at the label.
And just a few rows down, I got this little guy:
Yeah. That wasn't what I was looking for, but thanks, Google.
But he's cute, right? Other than the second head part, he's super cute. Look at his little hands, and his little face - he's so cute! Seriously, he's even sleeping with one eye peeked open - just like Eden sometimes does when she's really times - so he gets extra cuteness points for that, right? Right??
But he is little neck like a train wreck. That whole second head thing ... I felt like a jerk but I still couldn't look away. I'm a mother, and I so precisely laid my babies down when they slept, ever so carefully ... and he looks uncomfortable. And I know that's gonna wreak havoc on his neck muscles. His posture. His childhood.
WAIT, CAN HE EVEN LIVE LIKE THAT?
So of course, I did some more googling, and it turns out, he can, and he grew up to be super super cute. He didn't have a second head after all, and what I fell for what a shock factor photograph coupled with a clickbait headline - the baby was simply born with a very large lymphatic cyst, and when he was a few months old his parents had it removed. Click here and go check out how cute he is at his first birthday party! What a little charmer, huh?
