Photos of funny-looking seals and dramatic portraits of tattoo art are also a possibility.

It’s a common complaint amongst the Facebookerati: we enjoy interacting with friends, but hate seeing pictures of their stupid babies. The older you get, the more clogged with engagement announcements and ultrasounds and creepy family photos your Newsfeed becomes.

Lucky for you, Chris Baker, the author of The Elements of Fucking Style as well as a plethora of weird Internet properties, created a Chrome extension to tackle this first world problem. It’s called Unbaby.me, and it replaces all photos of babies in your Newsfeed with “awesome stuff.”

All you have to do to unbaby your Facebook is install the Chrome extension and refresh your news feed. By using a technique we can only describe as “baby detecting magic,” baby pictures will be entirely replaced by those of bacon and cats.

Now if we could go the opposite route and get a “baby-fy” extension that turns all pictures ever into adorable photos of squishy-cheeked, giggly children, this Betabeat reporter would make it a point to hug the Internet.
