Skeptical Baby


Skeptical Baby is an advice animal image macro series that started in 2012.  This meme displays a baby with a cocked eyebrow and has captions that usually begin with the rhetorical setup “You mean to tell me…”. Skeptical Baby is used to  describe various realizations about life that one acquires upon entering preadolescence.

Original Photo

Skeptical baby was cut out of a photo taken by a family photographer and Redditor, Jarod Knoten. Jarod published the photo to his blog on November 15, 2011. The photo was part of a family album taken at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The father, Dave, submitted the picture of his son, Mason, on reddit on January 11, 2012. The first instance of the image macro was posted on the same day in the comments section with a Most Interesting Man in the world type caption. A second thread was started in the Advice Animals subreddit deeming the photo, “Skeptical Baby”, later the same day. It received 6513 upvotes and a score of 991.


The Quickmeme page recieved 1146 upcoming instances, over 60 instances of which have been posted to the Advice Animals subreddit, within eight days of creation.
