Since the advent of the text prank, there have been a few that have truly made me laugh. This is one of them. One Twitter user suggested that people text their boyfriends, "I want a baby" and screenshot their responses. The results are amazing.
I think it works so well because texting someone that you want a baby is such a casual, cavalier way to inform your life partner of a monumental, life-changing decision. It is almost as absurd to text someone that you want a baby as it is to respond to that text with, "What, like for lunch?" Many of the boyfriends/victims of this text prank handled it hilariously and with grace, and that is all we can really ask of them. I will say that texting someone out of the blue to say you want a baby is an effective litmus test for gauging how your partner feels about the concept of babies.
This evil genius on Twitter started the whole thing with one request:

Pizza bribeThis is a big decision. It's only fair that he gets to contemplate his answer over a pizza. I'm all for this.

The dogIt's not the same thing! Dogs are great, but babies are different! You can't just leave the baby at home in a crate for hours. For example.
SmokingTo be fair, these look like young'uns. So I can't really fault his response. Here's to doing things on a timeline that's comfortable for you!

Out of your mindHey, if you're going to outright reject your partner's request for a child, why not do it with a hilarious meme? That should be fine.

GayThis is quite the excuse. Also, not a good one. Gay people can very easily have babies of their own.
"Steal one"The number of dudes who suggested stealing babies is really concerning. I'm sure they were joking, but like, dude, no.
