OK, with baby # 6 due soon, the following story just freaked me out.
A woman in New York named Marni Kotak, decided to deliver her child in a display case, and called it art. She called it "The Birth of Baby X". Not only did she give birth in this case, it was open to the public, and 20 random strangers watched her deliver her child into this world.
This crazy chick had a baby shower, and baring her breast, pretended to nurse a fake baby in front of her guests, where they also had a drink called "Dead Baby Punch". Like I said, WEIRD!!!
Now don't get me wrong, I watch A Baby Story, and other shows along those lines (although I only seem to watch these while I'm pregnant), but there is a reason they only show certain things, and blur out others. Showing all of your stuff to a room full of strangers seems a bit much to me.
After doing a quick Google search on this woman, it revealed that she has been re-enacting parts of her life, including her own birth (weird), her losing her virginity in, "a sunny blue Plymouth" (even weirder), and her grandfather's funeral.
I can only imagine what her son will think when he's older knowing he was born in a art gallery - as a piece of art.
