This is from Nicole Drespel’s Tumblr. It is so funny that you should not drink anything while reading it, lest you soak your computer/smartphone/tablet.

  • Dru: so i feel like baby in a corner talking to [them]
  • me: ugh. gross. wait. why a baby?
  • Dru: oh that’s just a phrase
  • ‘don’t put baby in a corner’
  • do not know where it’s from
  • me: are you…
  • Dru: dirty dancing
  • me: what are you doing right now
  • what the fuck are you doing right now
  • that’s not what that fucking means
  • are you joking me?
  • Dru: wait
  • what?
  • me: “nobody puts baby in a corner”
  • doesn’t mean
  • oh my god
  • Dru: what is it?
  • wait
  • me: nobody puts baby in a corner means “this person is too great to be stuck in a corner, hidden away.”
  • Dru: i’ve never seen that movie
  • oh
  • me: it doesn’t mean “I’m trapped in a corner.”
  • Dru: oops
  • me: That was
  • hysterical
  • Dru: well i’m embarrassed for like 10 years
  • me: HA
  • Like, it was such a simple misunderstanding but you said it with such
  • like
  • if you were doing a bit
  • Dru: why does it mean hide the baby?
  • me: you played it perfectly
  • Dru: that’s because i was an actual idiot
  • me: I have no idea what you’re [talking] about
  • Dru: why would it mean hide a talented baby?!
  • that is really dumb!
  • i feel like putting a helpless baby in a corner
  • is horrifying!
  • “Oh we’ve hidden a talented baby”
  • is so stupid
  • me: is this a joke
  • you’re dong a bit
  • Dru: i just looked it up on wikihow
  • me: he calls her baby
  • she’s called aby
  • *baby
  • Dru: i am not doing a bit

  • me: you know I’m tumblring this
  • right?
  • Dru: But
  • its dumb!
  • wait
  • so she’s talented

  • i mean now that i write that out
  • me: Okay.
  • Dru: it seems completely ludicrous that i’ve thought that
  • me: Jennifer Grey
  • is a woman named Baby
  • Dru: for so long
  • me: she meets this guy
  • Patrick Swayze
  • who sees that she’s great
  • her family is like really conservative and restrictive and stuff
  • and at the big final talent show
  • she’s sitting in a corner with her family
  • and he walks in
  • and says “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” and then pulls her up to dance
  • and they have the big dance
  • Dru: …
  • so there’s no literal baby?
  • or someone who calls themselves baby in the third person?
  • me: No.
  • Dru: well
  • fuck me
  • i can’t believe i thought it was a person who called themselves baby who was about to get into a fight
