Two Uglies Make a Cute

Hippo family


Susa Group Family


Two uglies make a cute.  Sometimes.

This phenomenon exists throughout the animal kingdom, including humankind.  The condition can be temporary, as the cute can morph into ugly at any given moment.

I considered posting pictures of family and friends and their offspring to prove the point, but that might be be rude.

Hmmm.  Upon further reflection, sometimes I find the reverse is true....two cutes make an ugly.  I am thinking of the spawn of one particular couple, but I am sure you can come up with your own examples.

I am always surprised when two cutes make an ugly. How does that happen?

Annie said...

happy wednesday lady!! :)

Heff said...

Every time I "bump uglies" I make a cute !!

I have exhausted this theory with good friends (um my husband)-

I am sure you can tell just by my writing and the tiny glimpses I post- that my children are gorgeous- like stunning- But so are we! So yes we wonder how do ugly people have cute children- and there in lies the answer- Cute Children don't always make good looking adults.

All little things are cute-

aww the baby hippo is cute! Yeah I agree. two cutes can totally make an ugly. oh well.

Dancing Branflake said...

Haha! You crack me up! I'd love to see those photos!

Lorena said...

This is so true.
I can think of so many examples, its not even funny.
I have figures out that sometimes you see a really pretty mom and then you see this ugly ass kid.
Either the daddy is an ugly ass or she's had a lot of work done.
Then again it could be the ugly grandmother showing up genetically.

LOL @ Heff!

Farah said...

interesting theory, I just hope it doesnt apply on me when I am reproducing! lol

Alisa said...

I love those photos! Especially those gorillas!

TERI REES WANG said...

That's a whole lot of Hot Love!

Katie said...

ohh no not the morph!

Katy Mary said...

LOL I'm glad I'm not the only one who judges babies by looks. Sometimes you just see a baby and wonder how that happened to it. On the flipside sometimes you wonder how two hideous people made a super cute kid...wait until puberty.

I have definitely found this true in some cases... there was the most gorgeous girl in my high school and her parents were horribly ugly. She said that she was adopted, but I'm not convinced :)

Char said...

it's like some kind of cosmic payback in both cases.

Ellie Grace said...

AHH I just want to hug that big gorilla. He is like an old man. A big, hairy, angry, man-eating, old man.

i worked in a day care in college and i was always surprised to see offspring of two uglies and two cuties. the children rarely turned out to be what one would expect!

Kitty Stampede said...

bahahahaha...love it. ugly babies are hilarious. it's hard to get ugly babies in the animal kingdom though, it seems. i wonder if parents are blinded to whether or not their kids are ugly...personality usually makes up for it.

Missy said...

The Hippo is cute!

Kathryn said...

Awh, baby mammals are so cute.

Gosh, not to be mean but my first thought when you said two attractive people making a not so attractive kid my first thought was Rumer Willis - her head just seems too big for her body and the short haircuts she sometimes sports really accentuate that - she looks better with her hair longer.

Kellie said...

I can't wait to see what Wade and I made. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she's a cute. :)

Starbox said...

that's a good way to say it! :)

Gary Heller said...

Ha, awesome post. Although I don't see any animal as ugly. . .I get it, and its true.
I was watching some nature doc once and they were theorizing that the reason animal babies and young are so cute is part of natures way of giving the young a fighting chance. Other animals are taken by them and don't harm them but rather offer care, as we are taken with them. there was even a case when a lioness had taken in a young antelope and was caring for it fro weeks until a male lion discovered it and ate it.

Vivienne said...

Hah! I can think of examples for both situations!

E said...

Hippos make the cutest babies in the whole friggin' world. I wish they would never get big and I could keep one in my backyard (bed) forever.

Alicia said...

so true! i often find myself looking at some fugly couple and wondering how on earth they could have made such cute kids....crazy. but the hippo...be still my heart! so dang cute!

Claire Kiefer said...

YES! It's amazing when it happens either way--two cuties with a FUG kid, or two uglies with a strangely attractive spawn.

Pics of family & friends is HI-freakin-LARIOUS!

I saw as long as both/all siblings are equally cute or fugly, it's all good. The trouble comes when one is adorable and the other one(s) is . . . unfortunate looking.

vint junky said...

Yeah you got to feel sorry for spawn or siblings whio are alot less blessed than their parents and family!

I love when two great looking people have an ugly kid. Balance in the universe and all that jazz.

Pretty Little World said...

I want a baby hippo!! Maybe I should just work on getting a dog first though...

...love Maegan said...

I'm maybe more surprised at how two CUTES can make an UGLY! lololol!

I also like how no one reads the commentary but decides to comment anyway ;)

Phoenix said...

I think hippo's are cute.... maybe cute and ugly are in the eye of the beholder? Hah!

But I've definitely seen the two cutes make an ugly... not with a baby, of course, but two very good looking people getting together and being slightly horrible people because they think they're awesome and better than everyone else.

Er... maybe this is just high school me typing this comment. Hrmmmm... at least I have my SAT score... ;)

bananas. said...

i've seen the theory of two cutes make an ugly in action! i know two people, both very good looking, who produced this scary looking monster. i'm hoping he grows up to be handsome.

plus just b/c a kid is cute doesnt guarantee that s/he will be cute as an adult. prime example: the kid from jerry mcquire. he looks like a blonde monchichi.

Mrsblogalot said...

I just had a really bad two positives flashback.

I have no idea what I just said.

Cheryl said...

Haha! Another way sexual instincts can lead you astray...maybe the best bet is for a cute to marry an ugly? The way mixed race babies are almost always drop dead gorgeous.

I loved the photos but I loved your accompanying comments more!
