King Cake Baby returns to horrify Pelicans fans


The New Orleans Pelicans seem to be intent on building their new brand by creeping fans out. At the start of the season, they introduced their weird looking mascot Pierre the Pelican. He later “broke his nose,” but we won’t get into that. On Monday night, the Pelicans brought back the ultimate nightmare machine — King Cake Baby.

King Cake Baby is one of three seasonal mascots — along with The King and The Jester — that the Pelicans roll out when Mardi Gras gets close.

As Ball Don’t Lie noted, a king cake is a seasonal food that typically has a small, plastic representative of baby Jesus hidden inside. King Cake Baby proves that we would all be best off if the representation remained a small figurine and not a terrifying giant baby.

Sleep tight, everyone.
