Crazy eights

So a baby was born in Kingston the other day.

Or as the headline read, "Kingston baby weighing 8 lbs., 8 oz. born at 8:08 a.m. on 8/8/08."

Odd?

How about the same in Iowa?:

"‘Eight’ is theme for baby born today at St. Luke’s"

And how about the same again in Minnesota?:

"Baby born on 8-08-08 at 8:08 (and you won’t believe what the girl weighed!)"

I do believe. Three times.
