New Fad in China: Mold Your Baby’s Head

Shape baby’s head with this custom-made helmet!

Wow, it’s better than Play-Doh!

The new fad in Communist China is for babies with round heads ( So their mothers take them to “clinics” where a special helmet is designed and fitted so as to guide the development of the baby’s skull while the bones are still soft.

Head-shaping has been done by lots of different people around the world and over the millenia. Usually they result in skulls that look weird and wind up being featured on unexplained mystery videos about visitors from outer space. Here’s one from South America:

skull binding, deforming skulls

So now in China they want round heads, ’cause round is beautiful. As one mom put it, “I have a flat head, and I know how painful it is for women who are chasing beauty.”

(I just realized I have to go and vote: today’s Election Day. New Jersey is owned, lock, stock, and barrel, by the teachers’ union and there’s very little hope that anyone can get elected governor here unless he’s a full-fledged flop-earned knave. Nevertheless, I’ll do my civic duty. I am convinced one earns spiritual merit by voting against a Democrat.)

  1. May the Lord bless you for your anti-communist vote today! In China they are trying to make their young men more masculine so they are forcing them to watch American high-energy movies of women kicking the guts out of men 🙂

  2. Is there no end to the madness. I just read yesterday about the experiments with monkeys and humans by switching some cells back and forth. I just want to hide my head in the sand.
