Baby, you’re just ugly

If you thought babies were always cute bundles of joy, then you haven’t gotten into the spirit of this Tumblr.

It is against societal normals to call a baby ugly, but we as people can agree that babies painted during the renaissance are rather unsightly.

Pick up a puke bag and scroll through at Ugly Renaissance Babies, a new Tumblr showcasing all of those ugly babies from yesteryear. (A reader pointed out that some of paintings don’t fall in the Renaissance era but also the Byzantine and Medieval eras. Regardless, still ugly!)

The first ugly baby that caught our eye was this bulbous baby that enjoys his wine more than a Real Housewife. Also, take note that he’s peeing and drinking at the same time! Total frat move.

We also loved the sassy babies dancing to whatever they listened to back then (Madonna: she’s that old, right?). They also have faces only a mother could love.

Another favorite is a picture called “The Reddit Madonna: I’m Watching You” where the baby’s face looks exactly like the meme that gained notoriety from rage comics.
