    Ha! That reminds me of Larry Carty’s little seen short (30 min) film Oreos With Attitude that screened as part of the Christine Vachon season at ACMI, and which I briefly commented on.

    As I say on my blog:

    Oreos With Attitude is a very entertaining and subversive parody on race in New York City. A black couple are ambitious social climbers who make all the ‘right’ moves. They decide to adopt a white child (at any cost) because they don’t want to risk having a child of their own who has a 30% chance of being darker than themselves. If white couples can adopt a black child, why can’t they adopt a white child? The film details hypocrisy, deceit and superficiality in a very amusing way.

    Yep I think we have a winner here. Seriously I might just go see this movie because there’s no way it could disappoint with a premise like this.

    LMAO i love it, in this day and age it would topple the 100 million mark in 1 weekend in theaters

  5. Am I nuts, or is “the donor” a guy in blackface?

    Firesign Theatre, on their album “Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers”, which is movie themed, have a gag with a similar theme.

    “Recommended for persons over 17 years of age!?!” What? This looks like an Enquirer cover from the 50’s. Was this really a movie!?!

  8. Dave M says:

    “Donor” and “carrier” make sense, but what do the “transmitter” and the “recipient” do? Does this actually take four people?

  9. Sushi says:

    Oh my gosh a medical phenomenon! who would have thought a white woman could have a black baby!

  10. sueann says:

    made by “hallmark relasing”? is this the same as the hallmark CARD company??!

  11. Steve says:

    I think I saw this, but there were a few more characters initially. The donor, the carrier, the cook, the thief, his wife, her lover ….

    Hallmark: when you care enough to send the very best. . .

    Here’s the story folks:

    Supposedly, an African American baby was born to while parents as a result of the father having had unprotected sex with a prostitute who had just had unprotected sex with an Aftrican American man. The sperm of the Aftican American man entered the uretha of the husband (transmitter) and that sperm got transmitted to the ovum in his wife.

    Whether this is true or not, I do not know, but I heard it as an Urban Legend type of thing about twenty years ago.

    Stranger things have happened though.

    I don’t believe this. Okay if sperm had entered the white man’s urethra, they would have instantly been killed: sperm are killed by urine.
