Super dibble adventures of the freshest kind!!!

There are an awful lot of people out there (myself included) who wasted their formative years learning more than anyone needed to know about Kid-Kits, silly-billy-goo-goos, and Jenny Prezzioso's family situation. Fortunately, today some of those people have put their knowledge to good use in the form of Baby-sitters Club fan fiction.

There is, frighteningly enough, lots of serious BSC fan fiction out there, where people are so enamoured with the series that they had to continue their fabulous adventures (including the never-ending repetition of the character introductions, from Kristy's MILLIONAIRE!!!!11oneone stepfather to Claudia's almond eyes and perfect complexion to Dawn being a Real California Girl - gack gack gack). But fortunately for all those who read the BSC religiously but felt kind of dirty about reading something so trashy, there are plenty of parodies out there, most of which involve Stacey becoming a crackwhore, Claire Pike being mildly-to-not-so-mildly retarded, Logan cheating on Mary Anne and Claudia wearing garbage. A few of my favorites:

"My hat was the best part. I took a stuffed polar bear and ripped the stuffing out before sewing ribbons to each of its legs, so I could tie it down under my chin. A lot of people can't wear unique outfits like that, but I'm an artist with silky black hair, and gorgeous almond shaped eyes. My boyfriend Alan once said I had a nice rack, but I'm not sure if he meant my chest, or the dish rack that I had incorporated into an outfit meant to show the true struggle of housewives. It was a great ensemble, I even had a fur trimmed apron and earrings shaped like spatulas."
- Super Special: Babysitters' Vancouver Vacation!
"No longer would I simply be Jessica Ramsey: Babysitter or Jessica Ramsey: Black Ballerina. Instead, I would become someone new - Jessica Ramsey: Rastafarian. "
- Amsterdam! Amsterdam!
"My name's Claudia Kishi. I'm twenty-three years old and an eighth grader at Stoneybrook Middle School. Most important, I'm the Vice President of the Baby-Sitters Club."
- Caludia Keeshi: Middel Skol Mamma
"My outfit was so special that it was probably going to make Ben fall in love with me. Not to sound conceited but even with my glasses and braces I could easily pass for thirteen in it. I was going to wear my new sweater dress with both my name and a book embroidered on the front. Hello sophistication! To complete the look I had borrowed a pair of tights from Stacey that had little red hearts all over them. She said the hearts would help me to find True Luv."
- Dawn in Prison
"I put my arm around her and did my best to reassure her that I would be coming home to visit very often. 'Well not too often' my father interrupted 'After all you need to branch out, find other friends, families, and places to stay for the holidays'"
- Mallory Pike: College Girl (if you read one BSC fan fiction in your life, it should probably be this one!)

That's just wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG. Worse, even, than the Little House on the Prairie stuff.
