    Tar baby - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Tar-Baby is a character in the second of the Uncle Remus stories; it is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br'er Rabbit. The more that Br'er Rabbit fights the Tar-Baby, the more entangled he becomes. In modern usage according to Random House, "tar baby" refers to any "sticky situation" that is only aggravated by additional contact.
    I first learned that usage as a child in Uncle Remus' story as well. That doesn't mean when I got older I didn't learn the derogatory meaning, too.

    Nothing in the world like the gay feeling I get while sucking a fag. Although if I hot box a fag I sometimes feel queer.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Maybe you'll like this usage: the war criminals Bush and Cheney sure grabbed a tar baby in Afghanistan.

    I think there should be a congressional investigation to determine if Obama really is a tar baby.
