A local grub has sought to improve his public image by posting a series of images of him posing with his cousin’s best friend’s newborn baby girl to his Instagram account.
James Nerada was able to convince himself moments before asking to be handed the child that if he did share some candid pics of him with the bub that his female followers, who currently don’t think much of him romantically, might begin to look at him in a different light.
“I’m not getting any younger,” said the 20-year-old. “I need to start thinking about my future. What I want to do with my life, who I want to do it with and where I want to be. It’s scary, but I’m ready to put my party boy reputation to bed!”
“I think that if I post some cute pics of me with a baby, I’ll get a stack of likes for starters and all the girls who follow me might think of me differently. I’m ready.”
However, not everybody is convinced.
A close pal of James’ reckons that the platonic females friends he’s trying to impress will see straight through his charade.
“Mate, he had his stomach pumped last week. Does he think we’re dumb? A few happy snaps of him and some fatherless bastard won’t change that,” he said.
“Perhaps if he took the time to properly launder his clothes, clean up his appearance and stop saying like the most racist things you’d hear this side of the Warrego – then maybe thing would improve for him.”
More to come.
