Best Poker Stars Icon Ever?

Poker Stars icons suck.

Unless you like baby pictures…of babies you don’t know.

Now no offense to the babies seen below.  They may be perfectly cute babies to the parent or the rest of the world, but no one wants to see drooling little tykes at a poker table.  This is poker, not daycare.

No crying in baseball?  No babies in poker.

Playing a recent cash game, we finally found one Poker Stars icon that sums it all up (um, the middle one).  It even got, we hate to admit, a legitimate LOL from Wicked Chops Poker:

    I find myself blocking the images of 40-50% of the players on PokerStars–not b/c they’re gory or otherwise graphic, but b/c they’re (1) pictures of somebody’s kid or (2) pictures of somebody’s gay pet. Everyone should try to bust these people first–and then let them know why we did it.

    better than the ready-made, cartoony avatars offered by fulltil or nothing like the rest of the pack. If you don’t like them, don’t display them idiot! Guess you didn’t know what to write/complain about, hey? FOOL

    wow, I am not the only one who feels this way. I also find myself removing 40% of images, almost all of which are babies. I am curious. why do they put babies on the site? is it to show them off? I got news. nobody wants to see them. They DO NOT belong at card games. when you go to a home game, do you put your baby picture out and flash it to everyone. maybe it is to bug us.. I dont know… I have 24 nieces and newphews and love them all, but please.. no more babies…
