Don't Put Baby In A Uniform

If you're an exhibitionist, how do you get attention? Well, back in the good old day it was enough to do something weird to yourself. Then that became old news and our focus was moved on to animals, preferably a cute pet. If you exposed a kitten to something peculiar, everyone went ape shit. Then MJ happened. Or rather, Michael Jackson decided to dangle his baby on the wrong side of a fifth floor balcony, and then we got it. So now, if you really want to be branded an outcast in society, use your own kid...

And that's exactly what Danish artist Nina Maria Kleivan has done. She dressed her baby as Mao Tse Tung, Idi Amin, Josef Stalin and, for dessert, as Adolf Hitler. Then it was off to do the rounds on the Internet. She wanted to show to that everyone has potential evil within them. Well, the baby looks scared as hell as Mao, slightly gay as Idi Amin, pretty cool - I think - as Stalin, but quite harmless as Hitler. But you should seen him as David Cameron....

and not at all cute.

I adore corsets but wouldn't dress a baby in one...
