Drunk Baby is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of an infant sitting next to a pint of beer. The captions typically portray the baby as an intoxicated storyteller mimicking the behavior of older bar patrons.
The original baby photograph (shown below, left) was submitted to the /r/funny subreddit by user MaryjaneBrewington in a post titled “She tells the worst jokes” on June 25th, 2012. The same day, the first Drunk Baby image macro was submitted by Redditor snicklefritz618 to the /r/AdviceAnimals subreddit, which included the caption “This guy…. / I love this guy” (shown below, right). Within 10 days, the post received over 6,600 up votes and 100 comments.
On June 26th, 2012, the Internet culture blog Slacktory published an article titled “Drunk Baby: Another Damn Advice Meme”, which noted the series’ growing presence on Reddit despite Redditor’s tendency to get more easily jaded by child-based memes than Tumblr users. The same day, 9gag user heartstorm90 submitted an image macro with the caption “Hey you. Yeah, You. / I totally sucked your wife’s tits”, receiving over 3,000 Facebook shares within 10 days.
