Nowadays it’s exhausting and hard to be the friend of someone who is having a baby. You gotta put yourself together and buy a present for the baby shower. Then you gotta put yourself together and buy a present for the sip and see. And now you gotta put yourself together for the goddamn gender reveal party. Us humans just love coming up with ways to waste money, and corporate America is loving it.
A gender reveal party used to be where the mom and dad just cut a cake, and it’d be pink cake for a girl and blue cake for a boy. (That didn’t make me roll my eyes since it involved CAKE!) But now people are getting more and more theatrical and over-the-top with revealing to their friends and family what kind of genitals their unborn baby has. Gone are the days when you revealed the gender of your baby by having it, or by writing “It’s A (enter the gender of the baby here)!” on cardboard and taping it to your garage door.
This gender reveal that’s making the rounds isn’t that extravagant, but it does feature a special guest star. During the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Golf Tournament in St. Augustine, FL on April 26, Bill Murray himself helped a couple reveal what they’re having by hitting a golf ball. When Bill hit it, blue glitter exploded everywhere, which means she’s pregnant with either a boy or a Smurf. The couple didn’t know that Bill Murray was going to do the revealing. Don’t they know that Bill Murray just loves crashing shit?
Some people have been saying that these “gender reveal parties” should really be called “sex reveal parties,” but I say NO to that. Keep calling them gender reveal parties. I only say that because I’d be the one with two blue balls if I showed up in a leather harness to a “sex party” where hot piece Bill Murray was a guest and then quickly learned that it’s actually just a stupid party to reveal the sex of someone’s baby.
