Baby Makes Three

When I heard about the marriage of Lou Reed to Laurie Anderson from Siva Vaidhyanathan, my first reaction was to wonder about what their child would have been like, had this union occurred when they were both of reproductive age.

Thanks to Tycho Horan for the link that makes this thought experiment possible. The accompanying message read as follows:

Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed are proud to introduce you to hahahahahhaha, the virtual Baby they created with the new RoutanBabymaker3000. Volkswagen and I created the RoutanBabymaker3000 to remind couples that babies are about love, not a German-tuned suspension and European styling. With the RoutanBabymaker3000 now you can succumb to the urge to procreate, without adding to the epidemic. Just remember. Please. Have a baby for love, not for German engineering.
