If you’re a Pittsburgh reader of Uncle Crappy, you’re probably aware of the pregnancy of our friends Abby and AJ.

However, you may not be aware that Baby Kuftic is ready to make an appearance any time now. And that, my friends, means we have just enough time to put together one of our patented baby pools.

Here’s the deal: A 15-minute slot of your choice costs $2, and slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. As this picture was taken today, at 40 weeks and one day, it’s fair to say that time slots starting as soon as, uh, now wouldn’t be out of the question. In the interest of full disclosure: Abby said on Twitter today she’s experiencing what she calls “pre-labor.” As I have very little experience with this sort of thing, I can only assume that means we’re getting close-ish. And that’s all the information I’ve got, boys and girls.

If you win, you’re going to split the pot with Baby Kuftic. Entry fees can be PayPal-ed to me at my UC Gmail address. If you don’t know that, say so, and I’ll make sure you get it.

SO WE CAN ALL SEE WHAT WE’RE PICKING: Please leave your entry as a comment here. I’ll do my best to keep up with publishing them over the next couple of days.

Good luck everyone. Especially to the pregnant lady and almost-new dad.


  1. To begin: Dana (@yay_toast) selected two slots on Twitter, before I got this post up; her times begin at 1:45 a.m. Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday. And Carla, a regular here, also made a pick on Twitter; she’s taking 6:45 p.m. Sunday.


  2. 4:00 to 4:15am Saturday morning.
    4:00 to 4:15am Sunday morning.
    4:00 to 4:15am Monday morning.
    4:00 to 4:15am Tuesday morning. (Gosh, I hope it doesn’t go to Tuesday.)
