        Nice play .. I like it. Speaking of which .. WTF have you been? I missed you my favorite troll?

        • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

          It really looks like him too hMMMM?

          Anyway I've been crying for days, because my dear Lauren ❤ left permanently.


          • SimonPhoenix

            NO WAY!! I had a hunch after that last exchange about a week ago. I notice all her comments were changed to "User Deleted" and I haven't gotten a reply email I had sent her asking her about some french music she had on her website.

            Any reason, why she left?

          • SimonPhoenix

            Well … just make sure you go and pick up a copy of the Chivette Calender, so you can see LG ALL THE TIME!

            If you didn't get one, you can have mine. I'll send it to you for Christmas. In all seriousness.

            • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

              Thanks for the offer, but an offer like that almost got me once when someone sent me a CD. It came in a big, faintly ticking box labeled: "Open somewhere private". Inside was another box with a string coming out of it and a note saying: "Just pull this string!". Didn't trust it so I let Mac The Intern open it for me.

              He recovered quite well over the years, the only thing is that his face got stuck.

            …and every loyal Chiver died a little bit inside that day.

    • The Chivery

      They all look like Chiver-babies.

      Chive on!

  • jjjjrrrrrrrb

    funny part is they are almost all supposed to be jesus

    • Yes

      Well it's hard to get a portrait right when the subject doesn't exist.

      • SimonPhoenix

        Are you a retard .. THEN IT WOULD BE EVEN EASIER .. Cause you could make the subject look like whatever.

        WTF .. I thought you dumb shit Atheists were like suppose to be "Master's of Reason" ..

        Master's of Asshats more like it…

        • Master of Reason

          They aren't masters of reason. Reason me this….. If I am wrong and there is no God, then I die and its over, nothing lost. If atheists are wrong and there is a God, they are totally screwed.

          • Bobolog

            So you believe in god not because of any reasoned analysis of the evidence, but just because you're scared of dying.

          • joe grandma

            And, if you believe in the wrong god, or in the right god the wrong way, you are also screwed.

          • fnaah

            This flawed argument is called "Pascal's Wager". Go look it up.

            If you live a life of stupid rules and fear and hate and mistrust of others, and there is no god, that's hardly "nothing lost". You've utterly failed to live, and what's worse, you've made other people's lives worse.

        • It'sJimmyYo!

          Wow … doesn't the Bible say "Judge not least Ye be Judged"?
          and another thing! YA!!!!

          • fnaah

            The bible also says "don't eat shellfish or pork or rabbits ever, but you can eat locusts if you like", "don't touch a woman while she's on her period", "adulterers must be stoned to death", "never shave or get a haircut", "do not wear clothes that are a mix of linen and wool", and other ridiculousness.

            • Jay

              First, only some of them are not supposed to be Jesus.
              Second, there is no debate that Jesus existed, there is enough scientific, archeological and historical proof that the person Jesus actually existed and was crucified as told in the texts.

              The debate is, do you believe that he was God or not. To claim he did not exist is like saying Abraham Lincoln did not exists, I never met him, but there is enough evidence to prove Abraham Lincoln actually existed.

              • Gnashes to Gnashes

                Wow. You heard it here on The Chive, folks! There's as much evidence to show that Jesus existed as our 16th president! Because of "scientific, archeological and historical proof". Yep.

  • jukebox

    not sure if lame or stupid…

  • Swarthy

    #18 – POW! Right in the kisser!

  • VedHead77

    #12 – I get that same look on my face…handgasm.

  • SkyVader

    #6 #15 About time the Chive posted some boobies!

    • tim

      Number 15 looks like a young Rodney Dangerfield

      • SimonPhoenix


        "I get not respect I tell ya .. no respect.. But wait .. I get breast fed! .. YES!

  • Vester

    #4 and #21 look like full grown adults but mini. Creepy…

    • Elliott

      Boring factoid: A lot of time the artist would paint the likeness of the person who commissioned the painting. A lot of the babies faces looked like adults for this reason.

      • kidn

        i suspect it may have been alec baldwin who comissioned #21

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/ADHDavenger13?feature=mhsn Firefighter23

      Be respectful! They're called midgets!

    • Casey

      Might be done by the same painter…. Kinda looks like it.

    • Cabbot

      Boring factoid number two here: Some artists can't be bothered with using a real baby as a model. (Then again, it probably would be weird even back then if a random guy walks up to a mother and says, "Hi! I'm an artist! I'm painting a religious piece (honest!) and need to borrow your baby.") Check out the baby abs in number 4.

  • Dumpface

    I am impartial to such as this.

    Useless trivia:

    It was common practice for nobles and wealthy businessmen to pay artists of the period to include them in paintings. I guess if you didn't pony up enough cash, you ended up as an ugly baby.

    • DontHoldMeToThat

      You were SO close……The patrons were usually worked into the paintings. If they were ugly, that's just the way it was.

      • Dr. Prof. Patrick

        Unless you were Louis XIV, in his case he was rather ugly but made to look handsome by artists… Especially Bernini!

  • Brian


    Ugly, maybe, but not stupid.

  • Maynard G. Krebs

    I see god's pee-pee!!

  • Intensemasterdebater

    From the Penn State Collection…

    • chappy


  • Lowrent75

    I wonder if was a cultural thing to make kids look freaking creepy.

    These babies are fucking ugly and anatomically fucked up, almost all of them. But these artists still kick my ass when it comes to painting one!

  • Irishstephen

    #4 Looks like Paula pushing love away!

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

      <img src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_gZI4lorcp-Y/TTyhesEVXxI/AAAAAAAABJ0/6RjjwU_u-fk/s400/wrong.jpg"/>Trolls are never offered love, with the one exception of my dear… my dear…. DAMMIT I'M GONNA CRY AGAIN!


      • Irishstephen

        Ah jeeze, I didn't mean to make you cry….

      • SimonPhoenix

        Hey Paula,
        Did "The One" leave after that really bad "exchange" of non-sense haters .. or did she leave cause she got promoted on the Federal Side of her DHS Career?

        Just curious ..

        • Adam_R

          While I'm hoping it was for the second, I have a feeling at least part of it was the haters. Some of them were getting downright brutal there [for no good reason, I might add]..

          *smh*…sometimes I just don't understand us human beings. The Chive should have sent Lauren to show up to their door, give 'em a hug, and tell them they didn't have to hate the world anymore lol. A quick smile from a girl like that can erase all kinds of built up anger and aggression. 🙂

        • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

          Can't/won't (take your pick) elaborate, but she did leave the Chive and won't return. Such a shame.


          • Adam_R

            Still…I like to think she's up there…somewhere…scrollin' the DAR…likin' peoples comments…all while securing teh homelands…

            …in a ninja suit.

            …except like a really sexy, only-LG-could-pull-this-off kind of ninja suit.

            Yea, take THAT terrorists! What defense do YOU have against 'merica's greatest secret weapon?!

  • Garrett
