Internet Baby Naming Contest Thankfully a Hoax

Natasha Hill internet baby name
Huffington Post

Last week we reported that a horrible  mom was letting the internet vote to decide the name of her child for a measly $5,000. We can now thankfully say that the whole thing was a big, stinking hoax, perpetrated by none other than the company holding the contest.

It turns out there may be hope for humanity yet, because the company in question, Baby Ballot, which bills itself as a social baby naming startup, couldn’t get anyone to actually enter their contest. Like, nobody was willing to do it. The woman who pretended to be pregnant art teacher Natasha Hill is actually unpregnant actress Natasha Lloyd.

Since they couldn’t even come up with one measly contestant, they decided to make one up and enjoy the delicious, delicious free publicity that came raining down on them like so many chocolate raindrops.

Rest easy tonight, knowing that a child won’t be named HurpDurp Bacon Kitten. At least, not because the internet said so.
