Whether they're clouded by the delirium of hours spent in labour or months of anticipation for the arrival of their next generation most new parents are oblivious to the fact that their babies are actually pretty freaky looking. Far from the adorable little Cupie dolls you might expect, newborns at times look more like strange and purple mutated balls of hairy flesh and mucus, than people to be.

French photographer Thierry Bouët in his latest series has sought to highlight they're freakishness by photographing 50 newborn babies at point blank in their first hours out from the womb. The images are currently blown up to a massive proportion and on display in Paris at the former department store La Samaritaine until the end of this week. Amazing pictures.

Damn, those are some ugly kids. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that mixed race kids tend to be the cutest. Crackers are usually shit ugly.

baby #1 is a werewolf. someone needs to advise it's mama not to breastfeed on the full moon. seriously woman- button up and don't flop it out again until the moon (and baby's bitey tendencies) are waning.
