It is time.

Let there be rejoicing in the land. Bring forth the forceps of Cthulhu.

  • Argh! /freaks out
  • Why should I freak out? I had nothing to do with it.
  • CROTCH FRUIT OUTCOMING!!!! That's what you get for having sex.
  • Good thing this is number 4(?). Reading those comments for the first one might give you a complex. crotch fruit - HAHAHAHAHAHAHa!
  • wow, I didnt realize that was number 4. impressive...
  • Number 2, actually, but baby makes 4 in the tracicle household. Wished elsewhere, but just once more for good luck - er, good luck, tracicle!
  • w00t!!
  • I wonder how she knew.
  • Have fun stormin' the castle deliverin' the baby!
  • I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.
  • (ö)
  • Is anyone else just a little disturbed by the term 'crotchfruit'?
  • Congratulations! Congrats Congrats Congrats!
  • 3669 Monkeys wish you the best of luck!!! Welcome to the outside, CrotchFruit.
  • I wonder if the t-shirt helped things along. Maybe MoFi tees are the new spicy food/maternity salad. Good luck to tracicle and family.
  • Are we going to have a baby shower?
  • dxlifer: why, are you pregnant too?
  • I dunno. Have you thought this through properly? Seems a bit rash, just upping one day and being all, like, "I'm going to pop a baby out of my parts this evening". At least draw up and action plan, maybe a quick cost/benefit anaylsis, I dunno. Anything to stop this impulsive behaviour.
  • is it going to be all gross and gooey and stuff? pictures! oh, and good luck! and, PICTURES!
  • WoooooHoo! Best of luck! And, I have never laughed so heartily from reading news of impending birth (i.e., crotch fruit). This place just wouldn't be what it is without such lovely crass witticisms. More, more, more!
  • Are we going to have a baby shower? I think a bath would be better, but what do I know, I've never given birth (that I know of). These days, we need a blessed event. Thank you, trac'n'company...
  • Alright, she's left- we need a doris or a fagbrush to Wreak Havoc in the absence of adequate supervision.
  • I'd like to point out that Chyren included an umlaut in his diagram. That totally made the whole thing worth it for me.
  • Yes! Yes!
  • Well, yes, there is an ongoing shower and birthday party. Check this out.
  • Yay and congrats!
  • *adds to general applause*
  • Ooooh congrats! I also feel as though pictures should be involved at some point. But crotch fruit? Chyren, I think I might have to <333 you.
  • Time to get ready the cigars/chocolates (not having keep up with the preggieblog, don't know if they already are aware of the baby's sex) Mmmhh... 'crotchfruit' sounds cool. I think s/he would like that name. Imagine the fun at roll call in school!
  • So do they spank 'em in the same place down undah? Crotchfruit indeed, I prefer Hellspawn... (living next door to SIX of them, but not for long!) Best of luck, Tracicle.
  • Just make sure that mom and dad don't get pissed at each other. OK?
  • paces up and down, cigars at the ready
  • facemask? check catcher's mitt? check bucket? check STAND BACK! Congrats to you on the komming kiddling
  • We knew you had it in you! Best wishes for a healthy and happy delivery.
  • Best wishes.
  • But wait! Do we have The Machine That Goes PING!?!?!?
  • Crotchfruit! perfect middle name! oh and Don't let a dingo eat the baby!!! Posted by: the_bone at June 28, 2005 11:42 AM best. labor. comment. ever. bwhaaaaaaa!
  • RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISE, Darth Crotchfruit... *deliberately avoids referring to other birth sequence* Best of luck! Let us know how it all turns out!
  • /slapo
  • best of luck, royal monkeybashi family!
  • Tremble, ye world of men, for a new monkeybashi cometh!
  • I hope it all goes well, and comes out well, and easily, and all that!
  • Any news yet? So excited!
  • Good lord, this is tremendous. *prepares to do monkey dance*
  • Just think, we all get to play a hand in the raising of the young CrotchFruit.
  • cockpunch for crotchfruit!
  • But will Crotchfruit be the Kwisatz Haderach?
  • Hope all went well, and many congratulations.
  • Welcome to the world, Crotchfruitbashi!
  • Uh, these links have been up for a while -- anyone know if something has happened yet? How long does it take to deliver a baby, anyway? *ducks behind desk, hiding from inevitable and well-deserved onslaught*
  • How long does it take to deliver a baby, anyway? My baby sister's took 13 hours. YMMV.
  • My aunt's delivery took over 24 hours. She's Italian. It was interesting.
  • isn't this our beloved bashi's second kidlette? probably will be much faster than her first, at any rate.
  • 24 hours for my first, 14 for my second. But she's down under where time runs differently and it's already tomorrow, so who knows?
  • But she's down under where time runs differently and it's already tomorrow, so who knows? oh god, little baby Crotchfruit is being born into a Hemispherical Time Vortex®! /runs, flails arms/
  • 45 hours of labor with space kitten. And yes, she does hear about it every year on her birthday. / me blows kisses to space kitten
  • Capt Renault - it depends on whether you choose ground or air.
  • *rimshot*
  • *rimshot* I don't think she'll be interested in one of those. She's having a baby, you know.
  • 45 hours of labor with space kitten. Good god! No college fund for you. For the Harkonnen boys, Beast Rabban arrived in just under 18 hours, little Feyd-Rautha in 3. But it was Feyd who made a mess in the shotgun seat of the Volvo on the way there, the little stinker.
  • I think 45 hours in labor should entitle you to a Congressional Medal of Honor. damn!
  • One of my nephews tainted the backseat of a police cruiser. Pretty much set the stage for the kind of person he's becoming.
  • "..made a mess in the shotgun seat of the Volvo.." The kid clearly knows exactly what a Volvo is good for. When I was a kid I threw up in the back seat of a Rolls Royce. I'd forgotten all about that until this came up (pardon pun) No lie. An old family friend was a chauffeur for a certain Saudi scion in London, used to take his fleet out for a spin. Beat that.
  • I kill't the thread!
  • OMFG TRACICLE IS GIVING BIRTH congratulations Mama Monkey
  • I'm pulling (pushing) for you, Tracicle!
  • Beat that. Laudanum in a Bentley.
  • Beat that. I once jacked off in the Paris Hilton. Just kidding... I've never been to Paris.
  • I can't beat that, but I have a family friend who says that she was once part of an honour guard for the Queen Mum. Apparently, the Dowager Queen asked the "boys and girls" to stand around her, so she could take a swig from her flask discretely.
  • is it out yet?
  • Sexyrobot, that question often follows the question, "Is it in yet?"
  • Now my electric cheesegrater encephalogram beyond bionic scissor accessory, michael.
  • so? baby? anybody? here? yet?
  • and shouldn't we send flowers? i know some of us pitched in for a gift, but flowers are always nice.
  • Anyone who wants to send flowers, I can email them tracicle's snail mail addy (if you don't already know it). Wonder which hospital she went to?
  • i was wondering the same thing, alnedra. i guess we should have asked more questions before bashi went to the hospital! also, some hospitals in the states now offer web pages where you can see pix of the new little ones, i wonder if they do Down Under too.
  • Beuller? Bueller?
  • no googlefu goodness on that one, kit.
  • Änyone? Anyöne?
  • I had a weird "synchronicity" moment though ... just as I was reading kit's comment, my boss picked up his phone and said, "guess what? Buhler!" Buhler is a customer of ours, pronounced the same. It was weird, man.
  • Did it snap you up from the pool of drool you were lying in on your desk?
  • No way man, nothing disturbs my nap-time.
  • You've got to admire that level of committment.
  • I pride myself in my discipline and focus.
  • ENOUGH OF THIS GAY BANTER
  • Chy is in denial.
  • I always suspected. Did you see that bougainvillea?
  • Yes, there was cetainly something of the cage aux folles about it.
  • I think the hospital must be the Christchurch Women's Hospital. It is brand new, and I think tracicle referred to "the new hospital"; it also has a Burford Birthing Unit, which might possibly be what kitfisto is on about (if anything). But I'm bound to be wrong.
  • I was, perhaps facetiously, quoting from Ferris Beuller's Day Off, inspired by the musings of my fellow monkeys. Tho good detective work, Commissioner Plegmund!
  • *wipes lunchcrumbs from keyboard* bluehorse, i haven't heard someone use "Is it in yet?", from anyone else but a dear old friend of mine, for decades. For us it is the trigger to remember my description of a particularly tiny penis encounter. )))
  • ooo! that hospital has a Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI)! thank goodness. back in my day they only had Baby Meanness Hospital Initiatives. back before we learned it was best to be nice to babies, lest they bite you.
  • That initiative means that instead of slapping the new baby on the buttocks to jump-start some cries, an intern dressed as a purple dinosaur begins rocking him/her, while softly whispering "I looooooove you...". Same result.
  • Awwwww.
  • oh lordy fish you MUST buy that for BashiBaby!
  • oh, excuse me, i mean BashiBaby Crotchfruit.
  • any word yet? the suspense is killing me.
  • Not an ook.
  • Well, I'm sure no news is good news, but seconded on the 'death by suspense.' *sending good wishes*
  • That is adorabubble, FT. So the Bashi family must be all wrapped up in the shiny Crotchfruity love. They will eventually remember their second family.
  • Crotchfruity love, that made me smile for the first time today.
  • Ah, to hell with it. I've waited long enough to light this cigar -- I'm just gonna go ahead and do it. *strikes match, lights hand-rolled Dominican torpedo, takes in long draw of carcinogenic goodness* Nobody minds, do they? *exhales toxic cloud, gives torpedo look of satisfaction* I promise not to breathe on the baby, allright? (Oh man, this is tasty. We should have crotchfruit around here more often...)
  • What the hail is that stank in heah?
  • those days were supposedly all about busting out into something new and being taken care of, for cancers. i'm betting the kid'll be a screamer i'm using this as an excuse to smoke too much in waiting rooms
  • !
  • Is that the new one or an old pic of Ethan?
  • I guess it's a little girl. The pics are marked "Amy". WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  • Labelled "Amy Onfmn Hope / 28th of June".
  • Dayum.
  • That's a good lookin kid. Gives me a warm sticky feeling inside.
  • Actually, Chy, that's just the glue you've been sniffing.
  • Amy, newest monkey, your arrival's very welcome; heartfelt, happy greetings from those in monkeybashi's kingdom!
  • so pink. so perfect. hi baby!
  • And like all babies, she resembles Winston Churchill.
  • Fucksocks.
  • Arsecakes.
  • tracicle's so not going to let Amy read this thread until she's sixteen or so. ;)
  • I can't pretend to be able to tell one new baby from another, but that one seems to be a fine example of the vintage. Huzzah! New baby as well as a recovering dog. They will sing songs of this day for many summers!
  • Quoth Wikipedia:
    In demonology, Amy is a demon, a Great President of Hell.
    A demon, eh? I wonder if she's Chaotic Good or Lawful Evil... Interestingly, President Amy, ruler of over 36 legions, teacher of Astrology and liberal Sciences, giver of good familiars, finder of spirit-kept treasures, and angel aspirant, is... male.
  • Hooray and congratulations! Whooooooo!
  • and the name of the only person i mentioned this too and they keep saying amy amy amy on the tv because it just happened to switch it to celebrity poker just before i read this mazeltov!
  • Welcome, Amy. This is a very weird place. Happy Birthday.
  • Amy Hope. Am I Hope. Why yes, yes you are, ma'am! Thanks for joining us.
  • I'm a little disappointed she doesn't shoot lasers from her eyes, but Tracy seems to be happy with her, so I guess it's ok. Welcome, little monkey.
  • Welcome to Earth, Amy! It's rather cold and very bright compared to where you were, but there are some significantly good parts I think you'll really enjoy. In the interim, feel free to pee whenever you get the notion.
  • Bienvenue, ma chere Amy.
  • Ma amie Amy. Hee hee!
  • EXCELLENT JOB REPRODUCING, BASHI!!!
  • n00b!
  • heh heh, flashboy wins.
  • Just a friendly warning -- it's never too early to start worrying if your daughter is eating right/staying out too late/dating undesirables/gaining a reputation/etc/etc. You have to marry her off some day, you know.
  • Oh, congratulations! She is a sweet little baby. Best wishes to the whole family.
  • I, for one, welcome our new small monkey leader.
  • Congratulations! So cute!
  • I just keep getting pushed further and further down the line of succession to Admin of MoFi.
  • hooray for Amy monkey! and flashboy, I think her main concern is b00b.
  • Cutie pie! (Love how her hair is about the same length and covering about the same amount of head as mine is these days. Young, old, all the same thing.)
  • All teh best! Congratulations!!
  • What a cutie! OK all you bad influences, get outta the thread.
  • ah! the cutest baby monkey ever. congrats!!
  • Great job and sweet baby! Do it again, T!
  • Awwwww. Babies always make me feel better about humanity. Thanks for posting the pics, and congrats to tracicle and her fam.
  • Congrats on the baby monkey!!! I'm glad everyone is safe and well.
  • grover96, someone had to say it! I just wish it had been me.
  • ))))))))))))!!!!!!!11!! Excellent post, Tracicle!
  • I'll give you a dollar if, when it cries, you tell it to STFU N00B!!!
  • Ahah! DP! Absolved of something (barely) witty to say, congratulations!
  • OK, FUN'S OVER! GET OUTTA BED AND FIX EVERYTHING!!!
  • *Squee!*
  • Hurray for tracicle! Hurray for #2! *Does Happy Dance*
  • Tracicle must be back at home cos she posted something on the wiki (check community portal)
  • Home and reading, although typing is tricky.
  • welcome back and congratulations.
  • Congrats on the new arrival, Tracicle! Lovely.
  • Just sayin'
  • Get back to work, Mr No-beer Office King.
  • Ooh, now that's what I call hating the baby.
