Disastrous gender reveal turns into dark ascension

I don't know who thought that "beating a black balloon with a bat" was the best way to decide and announce a baby's gender for them. But the balloon baby clearly looked at the available options and chose "ascension" instead.

I hope the parents are happy with that, because I'm pretty sure this guy's not having any more kids after this.

This Burner couple torched a little Burning Man for their 'gender reveal' video

In case you've never heard of gender reveal parties, let me clue you in. It's a celebration for expecting parents, or their guests (or sometimes both), that announces the gender of the child, usually in creative ways.

First-year Burners Lainey Deanne and Wesley Robinson of Utah conceived their first child at Burning Man this past summer. So, it makes sense that they would light a miniature model of the Man on fire in their backyard bbq grill as a way to reveal their baby's gender. Most folks use the colors pink or blue in some way to let everyone in on the surprise, but as their mini-Man burnt, a name was uncovered instead (it's difficult to see in the video).

Spoiler alert: It's a boy! Baby Isaac J Mike will arrive in May 2018.

Congrats to the Robinsons! Read the rest
