If you spend all day goofing around on the Internet like me, you can’t help but cross paths with a certain amount of Photoshop humor, often called “photo memes," or ultimate time-wasters. Lately, you can’t click ‘back’ without seeing another link to, where users submit a photo of a man with a baby; and then the site’s creators swap their heads to create, you guessed it, man babies. Have you seen a baby with an Adam’s apple? How about a bearded man in a onesie? What about a baby with an Adam’s apple tossing a bearded man in a onesie into the air? Are these images creepy or hilarious? The site has a ratings system. You decide.

Now since the site only posts one new man baby per day, it’ll be a while before they get to your photo. Why not edit the photo yourself? What's that? You suck at Photoshop? Then brush up on your skills by watching “You Suck at Photoshop” on YouTube. It’s a video tutorial series in which the narrator, a true man baby, discusses his failed marriage while showing off Photoshop tips and tricks. Like how to expertly erase the wedding ring from his wife’s finger. Or how to edit his wife’s rescue-animal cat into a plastic bag, which could come in handy should you decide to submit to the new man-babies' spin-off, Cat Ladies. Other how-to videos could learn a thing or two from "YSAP." Like how to be funny.
