Chinese American Toddler Vying to be Face of Baby Gap

It never occurred to me to make an appeal here on the forum, but now that it's officially news, please vote for this cute little guy, and not just because he happens to be my nephew (I'm not lying!).

Here's a link for voting, which involves a simple registration. Afterward you can vote every day until the end of the contest (the 21st) just by signing in with your email address.

A big thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to vote for him. Little JJ is just as cute in person as he is in pictures! :D

Whaa?
Okay, I voted. Good luck to the little tyke. If JJ wins, I'm expecting a little quid pro quo!

I, myself, was once D.C.'s Chinatown Labor Day Baby King! :lol:

Sadly, my technique has not improved much since my regal reign. :oops:

Wah! I wasn't expecting that revelation... :shock:

Who was the Baby Queen? And did she whack you on the head afterwards? :wink:

Seriously though, that's very cool! Thanks for sharing! :D

Don't know who she was. My queen was rendered away from my flapping lips at a tender age. No doubt, she's pining away for me, hearbroken, in some dark corner of the world waiting for my Restoration! :D

Thanks for the vote, Bob!

Dennis, is that drool of anticipation dripping from your kingly lip or just heavenly bestowed shine? :wink:
