Fright Fest 2011: 3D Sonograms Edition
At first glance, this submission doesn’t look very scary. If you’ve seen one 3D sonogram, you’ve seen ‘em all, amirite?!? But upon closer inspection, the ultrasound album o’ horrors actually kind of freaks me out. I can’t stare at it for too long or I become convinced that the world is ending and we’re all going to die looking just like this. Tormented in some way, like an unborn baby whose mother just ate a spicy burrito for lunch and washed it down with a grande Starbucks Frappuccino®.
Just look at that face frame-by-frame. It’s terrifying. Sure, you could make the argument that the lil fetus is yawning or crying because s/he is tuckered out from a long day of developing new body parts, but personally I think it looks like it’s screaming out for mercy. And why are there 59 pictures in the album? I understand why a mom-to-be would want to see that many stills, but couldn’t they have been edited down for Facebook? Doesn’t anybody use the edit function anymore?! It’s really not that hard to narrow down the “good” shots considering the bulk majority of these sonograms look like the visual definition of 'writhing in pain.' If you must post an ultrasound image on Facebook, just pick one, post it and move on. Posting 60 pictures of a baby before it’s even been born doesn’t bode well for the future.
