Meet a Sixteen-Pound Newborn Baby


On Friday, a baby weighing sixteen pounds and one ounce and with a head of hair like a young Albert Brooks was born in Texas. He may be, as far as anyone can tell at the moment, the state’s largest newborn ever. “We’re just amazed,” says the mother, who, in case you’re wondering, remains intact only because she had a C-section. The enormous, hirsute man-baby and his parents were on the Today show this morning. If they seem kind of stunned, it’s because their baby weighs sixteen pounds.
