In general, it's not a good idea to let total strangers take control of your baby (or her image) and dress her however they want, and that goes double for strangers on the Internet. When you have a baby, everyone online is a digital version of David Bowie from Labyrinth (except your Facebook friends; if they don't want to look at baby pics, they're dead to you). Every rule has its exception, though, and the exception to the don't-hand-your-baby-to-the-weirdos rule is on reddit's r/PhotoshopBattles, a forum where you hand pictures over to some of the web's best image manipulators and they turn them into such memorable memes as Business BabyA Teacher Holding A Poorly-Thought-Out SignMichelle Obama Holding A SignFat Bulldog PuppiesBarack Obama Playing Ping PongVery Grumpy Baby, and Scarlett Johansson Falling Down.

"ME?! I'M GOING TO BE ON THE INTERNET? LITTLE OLD ME?!" (via)

That's what one person did this weekend with their picture of a super-stoked little girl, and we are now all better off as an Internet, thanks to their efforts. I don't know what made this little girl so excited, and the picture comes with almost no backstory. Maybe that's better, though, because there's nothing to get in the way of enjoying each of her new incarnations as Darth Vader, King Leonidas of Sparta, Scream by Munch, or an assortment of weird Internet nightmares.

since that monster 
was actually a baby the whole time. (via)
