By analyzing the way chicks dig a guy with a baby, and comparing it to the parenting technique of the sloth in Ice Age, then performing a regression analysis on the title of a ten-year-old book on how Japanese men working 14 hours and commuting 4 hours each day never spend time at home, David Lancy, a Utah State University anthropology professor, has uncovered and named a fascinating new phenomenon: Baby-Parading.
It means that dads show off their virility and genetic superiority by showing off their kids, but then they go back to ignoring them when no one's looking.
If you have any doubt about this incontrovertible scientific theory, please note that Lancy was named 2001 Utah Professor of the Year. Also, a Salt Lake Tribune reporter confirmed it by talking to a man in a park.
