Dancing Baby

If you've been to this week's Book of the Week, you know it's All Audra Week here at Deuce of Clubs.

And this means that this week's Item is the dreaded Dancing Baby that Audra brought back from Chicago with her. She liked the fact that someone hacked off its right hand and hacked its left into the Satanic salute.

I first saw that Dancing Baby animation several years ago when Lady Kathy e-mailed it to me. I thought it was one of the most frightening and repulsive things I'd ever seen. I would never have predicted the Baby would make it big on TV (on Ally McBeal, no less). Now I'm seeing Dancing Baby paraphernalia at McFrugal's.

This thing plays a snippet from "Hooked on a Feeling," and the Baby wiggles around.

Whatever happened to Dead Baby jokes?

(No idea. Really.)
