Ugly + Baby

How many times have you walked around a museum and thought to yourself "Ugh, all of the renaissance babies are so ugly,"? 
Well, good news, there's a blog for that. 
Now you can relive those emotions without even needing to enter the Louvre. 
I included the commentary from the website for these ones. The other ones you'll have to look up yourself due to profanity, but I'd recommend it cause they're pretty hilarious.
