Well, the pictures are real. The things in the pictures, not so much.
A while back, I ran across an AI-generated picture of a “Gender Reveal Nuclear Explosion,” which I thought was kind of genius.
I tried my hand at the same pic, with somewhat more elegant, if less funny, results.
Now obviously, the joke of the original is that the gender reveal partiers set off the nuclear explosion. Honestly, given that a smoke bomb at one gender reveal party in California sparked a wildfire that burned down 23,000 acres, destroyed 20 structures, and killed a firefighter, it seems like the logical next step.
But I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if instead of doing terrible things like setting off a nuke, a gender reveal party were subject to various terrible things. And so I created a series of Midjourney pictures in which gender reveal parties were attacked by sharks and gorillas and bears, trapped in caves, and even just stuck in line at the DMV. Enjoy some of the results.
It’s a girl … illa!
Ok, the thing to remember about this next one is that we don’t know for sure what dinosaurs really looked like. They could have looked like this.
Speaking of dinosaurs, here are some gender reveal partiers trapped in a tar pit. Or at least near one. (Midjourney doesn’t always follow instructions exactly.)
Here are some trapped in a cave.
And here are some just stuck in a line at the DMV. They’re screaming because that’s what I always want to do while stuck in a line at the DMV.
BOMUS PIC! Here’s a gender reveal rioter facing off against the gender riot police.
That’s all for this episode of weird Midjourney pics. There will be more to come.

I tried "gender reveal party" on Craiyon few months ago and got half-pink half-blue cakes, sometimes with some mix of pink, blue, white, and purple balloons in the background. "Gender reveal party with guests" instead resulted in pictures of a single toddler wearing a pink-and-blue outfit, with either the cake in front of them or the balloons behind them, but not both. "Gender *conceal* party with guests" resulted in pictures of 2 or 3 people with heavy glamor makeup and high-fashion outfits, some of which looked like otherwise highly feminine women with broad shoulders and bare masculine-appearing chests (but thin and covered waists), and in one case, was also sporting a mustache while kissing a man with a tiny head. Make of that what you will.
These are genius!
