Reincarnation of Chris Farley
Could it be the second coming of Chris Farley? She's certainly got his eyes. Or did Chris Farley, perhaps, have a daughter?

Eric Schucard forwarded me this photo while I was in Africa (that's the same Eric Schucard who's responsible for the pictures of the MoH on the About the Museum page). This picture has appeared on quite a few blogs within the past month, but I don't see that anyone has come up with a definitive answer to the real question: photoshopped or not? Also, I can't find any clue as to the source of the photo.

My hunch is that it's not photoshopped. But that's just a hunch.

If you don't know who Chris Farley is, you can check out the wikipedia page about him -- and you can also consider yourself lucky for never having had to suffer through Beverly Hills Ninja.

I think this is a case of Infantile Pareidolia...kind of like how all babies look like Winston Churchill.

It's the teeth thing, but I think we got it backwards... Ugly babies don't look like Chris Farley, Chris Farley looked like an ugly baby...

That poor little girl LOL

I dont' think it's photoshopped either, I just think it's an unfortunate resemblance. It's probably mostly because of the face she is making, she's probably really quite cute.

What disturbs me about this picture is not so mauch that the baby looks like Chris Farley (if it does), but that the baby's head appears to be the same size as the head of the woman holding the baby.
Normal babies have disproportionately large heads compared to their bodies, but baby heads are still much smaller than adult heads!

So I think either the photo has been altered, the baby has cranial hypertrophy, or the woman has microencephaly.

I think it's simply an unfortunate resemblance. Did Chris Farley ever donate sperm, though?

I've noticed ugly kids make nice looking adults, pretty often. Trying to be optimistic...

This little girl is soooo adorable. All you saying she is ugly are stupid. You have no respect for Chris Farley. I hope this baby girl is his. And I don't think he was a sperm donar. RIP Chris Farley. Your missed much.
