Creepy Internet Baby Making Scam!

The thought of being about to morph two pictures of a couple and see what their resulting child would look like without leaving the living room seems like a great idea (my parents, had they had this technology, could have used this to brace themselves for a son who looks a lot like Screech from “Saved By The Bell”).  But if you read the fine print, you’ll notice that the only way you get to see the completed photo is to give them your cell phone number and start a subscription to get “ringtones, wallpaper,” and — my favorite — “fun text messages.”  Like fun text messages that say, I dunno, “YOU’RE A SUCKER” or “THANKS FOR THE TWO HUNDRED BUCKS A YEAR THAT YOU WON’T NOTICE BECAUSE YOU DON’T REALLY LOOK AT YOUR CELL PHONE BILL” or “YOUR COMPOSITE BABY IS HIDEOUS.”

I can only assume a mad scientist is behind this because it is at once creepy and pretty ingenious.
