"When a grown man plays with Legos"—wait! That's not the turf of Adult Babies. That is the turf of nerdy men who attend Lego shows with all the massive buildings and choo-choo trains they've assembled.

Stanley says, "This is my crib." Wait, was this an episode of "MTV Cribs"?

"The only time he's not a baby is when he goes to Home Depot"

That was clearly Lowe's. The red and blue smock should have given that away. Let's not deprive them of their product placement now. There's a potential new tagline for them. Lowes: Let's build something creepy together.


"If only there were some type of loophole in the justice system where we could proactively lock people up who haven't technically broken a crime...yet."

I vote we start with shooting the messenger. Not you, Vandelay. National Geographic. Fuck National Geographic for doing this. I can't think of any real educational or entertainment value in this. Ignorance may not always be bliss -- however, this is a case where it is. I really wish I could unknow about Stanley.

Vandelay

Lowes: Let's build something creepy together.

Brilliant.

And I owe an apology to all religious fanatics for saying they need to grow up. Clearly, they don't need to be first in line.

"Your first thought is, wow, this is crazy... then you get on the computer and you find other people are doing it to..."

This comment will come in two parts.

First... this is part of something that happens a lot now. People feeling the urge to do something completely self-serving or insane and telling themselves it's not wrong.

I'm good with people being born this way and not feeling ashamed of being unusual, but that maxim can't universally apply. You have to understand the line between accepting that you were born to dance and convincing yourself that it's okay to crap yourself in a diaper.

Here's a handy guide you can use: If your desire to express yourself requires making another human wipe your shit, you went too far. Freedom is good. Responsibility is better.

Second, if you're using the ability to look online and find people that do stuff as a justification for your own behavior... stop. Just stop. This won't end well. Thank you.

Mr. Kruger

No harm, no foul.

Nat Geo normally has some good shows but this one is just a retarded waste of time- apparently not for Vandelay though. Then again it's probably a step up from Glee and def from NJS.

Vandelay

No harm, no foul.

I think there's something a little depraved about it, actually. There are so many people living miserable lives because of handicap, disease, or just old age that are put in the position of having to be taken care of in an infantile manner and that has to be a nightmare for those people. For anyone to say that it's actually desirable and chooses to live that way is a huge insult to those people.

Mr. Kruger

There so many paraplegics strapped to gurnies and wheelchairs wishing they could strap into a snowboard and tear the mountain a new asshole. It must be devastating for them see someone with two perfectly good legs and arms waste their time playing horseshoes and whiffle ball all year.

There are so many recovering alcoholics who wish they could drink just once a week who must go into anaphylactic shock when they see ppl who choose to drink Miller Highlife and white Zinfandel.

There are so many deaf ppl who would give their right hand just to hear one song. They would drown in their own vomit if they ever knew some ppl actually show up at Barry Manilow concerts.

To each his own.

Vandelay

I'd like for the record state that I do not and would not under any circumstances drink white zinfandel.

Assman

No harm, no foul.

Just because it's relatively harmless doesn't make it any less stupid.

There's no harm in a guy walking down a public street with an open bucket of lighter fluid and a torch. There's no harm in someone selling bags of their own vomit on Ebay. But some things you ought to have the sense to avoid doing, even if you're techncially allowed.

Jack Klompus

"But some things you ought to have the sense to avoid doing, even if you're techncially allowed."

Exactly. In Stanley's own words, he said it all started when he was 14 but it didn't seem right. Great, he had the sense to recognize the red flags during his rebellion stage, but completely fucking ignored them during what's supposed to be his responsibility stage. Big fat retarded fuckin' manfant.

Makes zero sense. A bucket of fucking lighter fluid?? No harm??

Of course he should have the sense to be normal- BUT HE DOESN'T. So fucking what? Get on with your life. Are you going to incarcerate every nut job in the world that thinks shoving a gerbil in their ass is a good idea. Fuck, if that's the case John Waters should've been drawn and quartered 30 years ago.

Jack Klompus

"A bucket of fucking lighter fluid?? No harm??"

Not unless it ends up injuring someone or destroying something.

Assman

It's as harmless as a guy who's crazy enough to not mind wearing a bag of his own shit. Sure, it can turn into something harmful, but by itself, it's pretty innocuous.

Are you going to incarcerate every nut job in the world that thinks shoving a gerbil in their ass is a good idea.

Nope - I don't think he should be incarcerated. I think he should have the freedom to be a grown up baby and the sense to think better of it.

Or, better said, if he's going to be a nut job who plays with Lego's in a playpen, he should at least have the sense to be ashamed of it and not let TV cameras in his house. Come on now.

Mr. Kruger

Money talks. It's a tv show. I'm willing to bet a fair amount of it is scripted.

Not unless it ends up injuring someone or destroying something.

Right, because I never would have thought of that on my own.

Excuse me if I assume I have more to fear from the guy walking toward on the street with a bucket of jet fuel in one hand and a torch in the other than the guy in the house with a diaper on being spoon-fed pineapple snot by a mexican Divine.

I don't think it was meant to be analogous in terms of danger. I took it to mean an alternative illustration of "just because you can, it doesn't mean you should."

q: Is it harmful to me or others I'm associated with?
a: No.

Therefore, do what you will and I'll choose not to pay attention.


Vandelay

Well, that settles it then. We have nothing to talk about it anymore. Shut the blog down, Chiles! Unless were curing cancer over here, it's worthless!

Jack Klompus

"Therefore, do what you will and I'll choose not to pay attention."

How do you ignore a paraplegic strapped to a snowboard with an open bucket of zinfandel and a ball full of vomit ready to tear Barry Manilow a new asshole? You fuckin' don't. It's goddamn harmful shit.

That shit belongs on a t-shirt.

April

I'm just surprised that no one is commenting on the size of Baby Shitmypants and Fatty McFatterson! Were her tits actually her stomach? And did she have tits on her back?

Fucking gross.

randi

I'm with April. I actually watched this at home on my own television on my own free will during my free time and was shocked that her tits hit her knees when she sat down.

Man Baby and his babysitter clearly each serve a purpose for one another. I highly doubt anyone is going to impregnate her by choice and the chances of him having a loving relationship with a "normal" woman is absolutely slim. Is it harmful? Nah. Disturbing? You betcha.

Vanessa

I listen to these people talk about this kind of fantasy on a daily basis and can see where they are coming from. Is it something I would ever do, NO. is it something that makes sense? Not to me but to some yes. Society puts so much stress on what is right and what is wrong that people like this feel the need to hide their addiction. Then when it comes out into the open people freak out. It is a fantasy for some, a lifestyle for others and reality for few.
