Oz foetus becomes Facebook star

'Bubba Waring' joins the social networking revolution

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

An Australian foetus has become an internet "star" after doting parents-to-be Claire Gillis and Luke Waring decided to set up a Facebook page to keep friends up to speed on the pre-sprog's progress, Reuters reports.

Gillis explained to Oz's Daily Telegraph: "We have friends and family all over the world, so we're using it for them, to post updates on ultrasounds, scans, and what it has been doing all week, so that's how it started."

Pretty quickly, a "grainy black-and-white ultrasound image" of "Bubba Waring" had attracted 29 chums, and a queue of eagers punters wanting to pile into the embryofest. Gillis added: "I'm considering whether I should just open it up to the public because I'm just receiving the most ridiculous number of emails and friend requests."

The sex of Bubba Waring is unknown, but most apparently favour a chap based on the limited evidence. Gillis concluded: "We're not going to find out its gender, so it'll be a surprise to everybody when the baby is born."

Should you wish to join the party, you can apparently find Bubba Waring here. We can't be sure, because this hack would rather chew off his own right arm than go within 1,000 light years of the Facebook social networking phenomenon. Bah humbug, etc, etc. ®
