What? 

No you can't shave the baby... Ever! 

Perhaps BBS got lost in translation... ? ? ?

Its a hairy demon baby that apparently wants you to shave it.

A thing nightmares are made of IMO...

Based on what I've found online: 'You Can Shave The Baby' was never a consumer item, but rather an art object created in 1995 by Zbigniew Libera, consisting of a set of ten matching dolls in ten matching cardboard boxes.

If that's art, I'm reconsidering art appreciation...  Tongue

PS Every wall in my house has at least one canvas mounted on it...

Dada art can be offensive or may look pointless. Such as this.

Yes, Zbigniew Libera is (or was) a Polish artist behind other such works as the "Lego Concentration Camp" and the "Doll you love to undress" complete with exposed internal organs...

Art is only limited to the limits of ones mind. It's very subjective. One man may hate. One may love. Who am I to judge what true art is. I say if u love it and it brings u happiness then by all means own it!

It's also at times meant to make a statement it to b conversed about. And well Ben by the nature of this thread I feel it served its purpose....

My alarm goes of at 5:45. I take my meds, brew tea and turn on KPFK. I go online to find out I'm not a 1%er. I turn for succor at The Nook and see this. I'm going back to bed for an hour.

it's comforting to know that in 300 years, nonsens from our time will be gone without a trace, while perhaps 10% will remain and kept alive by the invisible hand.

Looks like the crack could use a touchup.
