Welcome to the world, baby Lucas

A little after 8 a.m. this morning my sister, Jennifer, gave birth to Lucas DeGennaro. Mom and baby are healthy and happy, and he tipped the scales at 8 lbs. 15 oz. He was about a week overdue, and since Jennifer struggled with inducement during her first pregnancy, they did a planned C-section. She's recovering much more quickly this time around.

Tomorrow morning we are hopping in the car and heading to Atlantic City. They live in Galloway, New Jersey just outside of Atlantic City.

This is the third baby born in our family in the past seven weeks. Late in May a member of my web team, (and my second cousin) gave birth to her first, a little girl named Natalie. In June, my wife's sister had her first, and we welcomed Lauren Rebecca. Now in July, Lucas joined us.

My wife and I started trying to get pregnant about eight years ago. Our twins turned six in May. Since we began working on our little project, there's been a baby boom among our closest friends and family. Check out this unbelievable list.
  • Jason, Ainsley -- our twins
  • Brianna, Kaitlyn -- to Kristen's brother, Jonathan
  • Lauren -- to my sister in law, Lori
  • Vincent, Lucas -- to my sister, Jennifer
  • Natalie -- to my cousin, and assistant, Kyley
  • Zander, Lexi -- to my personal care attendant, Heather
  • Abigail -- to my assistant, Michelle
  • Lucy -- to my personal care attendant, another Heather
  • Samuel, Gracie -- to my assistant, Jane
  • Isaiah, Nathan, Maya,Lara -- to my wife's best friend, Rachel
  • Sadie -- to her other best friend, Elizabeth
  • Rylee -- to our nanny, Nicole
  • Romelo,Victor -- to our nanny, Hollie
  • Madison -- to our nanny, Lisa
The total comes to 22 babies in eight years, including three sets of twins. This doesn't include about a dozen babies born to cousins and other extended family. All of these people were employees, closest friends and immediate family.

At first, I thought something was in our water. But partway through, we moved and now use bottled water. Additionally, three of the babies were adopted.

I have another theory. It's me! I've spent significant time with all of these people. Either, my incredible manliness drives women crazy and they run home and take out their passion on their husbands and boyfriends, or, perhaps (but I think unlikely) they are so thankful that their husbands are not like me that they give them good love. Either way, I get the credit or blame!

I'm thinking of making a T-shirt for myself that simply says "Fertility God". Let's hear what you think. Post your comments below.

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.

After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.

Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.

Sometimes no caption is necessary.

But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.

I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats. No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
