Another Duggar Baby Has Arrived, Joins Rest Of Family In Plans Of Total World Domination

Josh and Anna Duggar New Baby June 2 2013

Relax, relax, I know what you’re thinking.  But the answer is no, this isn’t baby number 20 for Michelle Duggar and her cornicopia-esque womb.  No, we would have heard about that on the Today show and in a 60-minute TLC special a few months ago if that were the case.  The newest little Duggar nugget (Dugget? Nuggar?) comes from the loins of Josh and Anna Duggar, who have seemingly adopted the Duggar school of baby-naming: Marcus Anthony Duggar is now the third “grand-Duggar” (barf) to have the “M” initial after the most anti-climactic pregnancy ever.

Is it weird that I have spent actual time and precious life moments wondering about the reasoning behind the Duggars’ obsession with one letter?  I mean, there are 26 to choose from!  Why limit yourself and your dozens of children to just one?  My theory is that the “J” names have something to do with the “J” in Jesus and the “M” names have something to do with the “M” in “Mary.”  Annnnd that’s about as deep/philosophical/religious as I hope to get about the Duggars, on Crushable or in real life.  It’s also quite possible that this initial thing is part of their plan to seek complete world domination and someday we’ll all be known by “J” of “M” monikers.  Or at least be tied down and forced to get perms.

“We are so thankful that mom and baby are well! We are blessed to have our family close as we celebrate this gift from God,” the couple told People Friday.

Josh and Anna already have a 3 year old, Mackynzie (even the spelling of that name seems Arkansian to me–no offense.  Just kidding, it’s totally offensive. ) and a 2 year old, Michael.  That’s a lot of babies in not a lot of time… I feel my uterus recoiling as I type.  Don’t get me wrong, I think kids can be great and someday I hope to reproduce one, but I am way too easily overwhelmed by minute tasks in life to ever consider having children on top of each other like that.  I give a lot of credit to the moms and dads who can do that without having a nervous breakdown.  The Duggars are a family I personally find to be narrow-minded and misogynistic (and more than a little creepy), but congrats to them nonetheless.

And in case this post isn’t enough to quench your Duggar thirst, there will of course be a TLC special entitled (what else?) GrandDuggar Makes 3! on TLC June 16th.

      I think the J names are to honor Jim Bob and the M names are to honor Michelle.

        See? This is why I need commenters sometimes.

      I’m so ambivalent about these people. I object on principle to criticizing anyone for things like reproductive choices. At the same time, if they go on television and voluntarily make their reproductive choices public entertainment, well… does that cancel out my obligation and give me carte blanche to respond in kind, or should I continue to take the high road and let their propaganda go unanswered?
      Kind of an entry-level ethical question, I realize.

        The only way to pay for all those children is to be come a reality show. We need to suggest that to all poor over breeders. Better than welfare benefits.

      • MCR

        I’m not so sure it’s better. At least welfare recipients don’t get to promote their lifestyle on national television.

      • abbeysbooks

        I guess it depends on which side of it you are looking from. Actually I have never watched this stuff. I haven’t plugged in my TV in decades, except awhile for video movies. Not to worry. It’s just all prep and boot camp for the Hunger Games to come.

      • abbeysbooks

        Yes, the neo liberal position about reproductive choice has its built in ambivalences. We can just call the Duggars BREEDERS and let it go at that. Isn’t that what they are? All sci fi has made it clear what BREEDERS are and their contribution to the planet. As the wonderful writer John Fowles said, “If people are going to breed like rabbits, they are going to die like rabbits.”

      No dummy, the J names are because of Jim Bob and the M names are because of Michelle. Duh. Only an idiot would miss that. I would think that your bitchy blog is more of a waste of your “precious life moments” than anything the Duggars have ever done. You are one sad bitch. Im sorry your life sucks so much. And no, im not a Duggar fan either

      I happened onto this site by accident, but am kind of glad I did. Appreciate the chance to say that the Duggars are a family of really good people who love the Lord and are doing their best to follow what they believe is the way He would have us live. I see no need for you to be so terribly harsh and critical. Are you equally unkind to others who do not live their lives in a way you agree with? Really? Is there anything to be gained by bashing each other? I think not.

    • Decent Human Being

      If you cared, or half paid attention rather than cherry-picking your Duggar rants, you ignorant troglodyte, the ‘J’ kids are named for Jim-Bob and the ‘M’ kids are named for Michelle. (Josh wanted to recognize his mother — and you take issue with that, too, I’m sure.) If you so hate the Duggars, why are you bothering to take the time to rant on them? Or, to be more politically correct, bullying them for having decent morals? The kids have been taught to respect themselves and not sleep with anyone who looks at them — what kind of whore are you that you have to diss them for that, to make yourself feel better?

      • Oh please!

        Oh, so that’s how “decent human beings” talk to people….Cause I was wondering…..
