Stuff People Google 46

Another Friday, another phrase that someone googled:

what does the comment your baby looks like an old man mean

Last December I wrote a post about commenting on a baby's looks (here) and I have no doubt that the Googlebot matched that post with this google search.  In the post, I wrote about a baby who looked like an old man.  I didn't, however, explain why I thought the baby looked like an old man - I'll do that now.  To me, and reasonable minds may differ, the old man resemblance applies to wrinkly babies with quizzical expressions.  It doesn't mean unattractive, not at all.  Quite the opposite, an adorable baby can look like an old man.  I should also mention that the old man look is usually a particular angle and expression in a photo or a phase that is quickly out grown.

I LOVE OLD MAN BABIES. But I wouldn't say that to a parent.
