Waa-Waa, the Baby Human

The Chicago Baby Humans are a sports team local to Chicago, Illinois. Their mascot character is named "Waa-Waa, the Baby Human."

Background

History

The team's name and mascot appear to be parodying real-life sports teams, such as the Washington Redskins, which have become the subject of controversy. This is due to their insensitive depictions of Native Americans.

The mascot Waa-Waa is depicted as a "furless, featherless dolt" who toddles around drinking poison as the narrator mocks him.

Season 6

In Feel-Good Story, Diane reacts with discomfort upon seeing the mascot character, despite Guy's attempts to comfort her by saying the character is a reference to her "proud human heritage," again echoing the real-life surrounding sports teams that use Native American mascots.

In Good Damage, Diane and Guy are watching a Chicago Baby Humans game. Guy tells Diane she should try a Chicago style baked potato. She then questions why everything has to be "Chicago style" as it's obvious they are in Chicago. Guy tells her to just try it.

Diane notices the fork and knife are individually wrapped in plastic and goes on a rant about the plastic industry and how the Baby Humans are owned by the CEO of Plastico and therefore they are complicit in the money-laundering scheme that is also killing the planet. She then accepts this by saying what are they going to do about it as she shrugs and smiles.

Trivia

  • Good Damage reveals the team is owned by the CEO of Plastico.
  • The Baby Humans is an obvious reference to the Chicago Cubs and their home stadium of Wrigley Field. Their ownership by the CEO of Plastico is a reference to the Cubs being owned by the Ricketts family of TD Ameritrade, and their ties to conservative politics.
