Have you ever seen the word "baby" at the end of a sentence?  Do you know what it means?

Usually people use "baby" to sound a little bit cooler.  It's also usually used as a joke and if used correctly, can make other people laugh.  I'm not sure where it started, but it's used quite a bit. 

If you've ever watched the Austin Powers movie, you have heard this happen.  Austin likes to use "baby" to seem cool and laid back.  He uses it a bit too much.

Always use a comma before the baby.  For example, "I love English, baby!"
