Earlier this month, Sandra Biddlefield logged onto Facebook and posted a photo of her baby - making the claim, "My little Ethan is the smartest and cutest baby in the world!" Friends posted the following confirmations, "He sure is!", "Without a doubt", and "lol, I suppose so!". Grandmaz5465 added, "There has never been nor will there ever be a smarter, cuter baby".
When word spread that THE smartest and cutest baby EVER in the world was born in Wheeling, the scientific community rallied. Dr Alexander Knuckle, Head of Research at WVU was soon assigned the task to bring a team to Wheeling to test Mrs. Biddlefields claims.
Dr. Knuckle says, "Whether Ethan is the smarted baby will be easy to judge. From what I've seen of him jabbering and playing with spaghetti on her YouTube channel - I'm fairly confident he'll pass with flying colors.
"However quantifying "The most Beautiful Baby" will be more difficult - but is vitally important for our human existance. How can we know how ugly we can get or, for instance, exactly how beautiful Angelina Jolee is - without scientifically creating a scale. To do that, we need to find who's at the top and bottom of that scale."
When asked if he has determined who the ugliest person is, Dr Knuckle only mumbled something about his mother-in-law.
Also on the team are, Dr. & Mrs. Johnson of Lotown, New Jersey, Dr. G Erber of Empty Jar, New Jersey, John Graco of Strapemdown, Pennslvania, and Dr. Pam Persinger of Dyper Pale, Kentucky.
Their test results should be out in about 9 months.
