Pop Rocks: 2013 Already Sucks -- Kanye and Kim Kardashian Are Breeding
That was quick. Was that quick? It seems quick.
Dear God, please don't let our child be as repulsive as we are.
Kardashian, 32, took to her official site to post the following on New Year's Eve: "It's true!! Kanye (West) and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo"
She has spoken for years in interviews of her wish to be a mom. In September she said on ABC's The View: "Kids is definitely something I want, I think I wanted that before."
Incoherent much? It sounds like she's already sleep-deprived, which is a great way to get ready for baby (or would be, if she and Mr. Jesus Walks weren't going to have an army of nannies and au pairs at combat readiness the moment she goes into labor). So that's good news.
The bad news is, well, Kanye and Kim Kardashian are having a child.
But perhaps I'm being unfair. After all, there's no proof the spawn of Kanye/KimK will be, as my friend Christopher put it, "the Kwisatz Haderach of douchebags." This kind of thinking could easily be viewed as hurtful and unfair, mostly because I'm pissed I didn't think of that line myself.
Sure, on the surface the propsect of a megalomaniac and the world's biggest attention whore having a child might seem...ominous, but let's not be too hasty. It's a new year, after all, and maybe part of this whole "new beginnings" thing includes applying thoughtful analysis instead of falling into the trap of cynically prejudging every bloodless, focus group-approved stunt designing to engineer publicity for a stalled reality show career.
Sorry, sorry. Baby steps. Anyway, in the interest of said thoughtful analysis, here's your official Rocky Dennis Style Pending Baby Analysis:
These Things About the Kanye/KimK Baby Are Good
The Kid Probably *Will* Care About Black People -- Hating your father isn't unheard of, but it takes a great deal of self-loathing to hate him because of his skin color. In any event, it's unlikely Papa Kanye will be saying something like this at his child's high school graduation.
Prince William and Kate Middleton's Kid Will Have Someone to Play With -- You don't let a potential King/Queen of the United Kingdom slum it with non-Royals. And sad to say, Kanye and KimK are the closest thing America has.
It's a Chance to Live Vicariously -- Did you ever resent your parents because they never gave you a car/pony/motorcycle/Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle? The good news is, you'll be able to relive your miserable childhood via constant updates detailing everything the West/Kardashian offspring receives that you never did.
And here's something for you parents out there: The kid's college is already paid for, and he/she ain't even been born yet.
Kim Will Probably Post Some Pregnancy Cleavage -- Tweeting your "bump" is popular among people who have no shame to begin with, but at least there's a chance Kardashian will quote-unquote inadvertently show off some décolletage à la Jessica Simpson.
There Is No 5th Thing -- Seriously, that's all I could come up with.
