I totally thought of you today. I just might have to write a post about it. Just picture a truck stop and a 4 year old's bladder. Yeah. It happened. I kept thinking to myself, "If I was Jo at bumbumgerms I would be calling 911!" Seriously. LOL Yeah- This is bird feeding business is sick. Lets all pool our pennies and buy her a food mill.
Oooh! I so want to read your post about it. :)And I know....if Alicia Fucking Silverstone can't afford a food processor, I don't know who can.
I mean, it grodes me out enough when birds do it...don't they KNOW about BIRD FLU???
PS-- I think Cher would TOTES not approve of this behavior: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/__pBBSlTatl0/S_CgeWYWV8I/AAAAAAAAAfo/VBAbK7eZsF4/s1600/Clueless_621.jpg

Ok this is disgusting I totally was working on my WTF Friday this am and this is the first WTF on the list. I find this totally wrong and waaaayyyy to tree hugger to totally get. Ewwwww
Ha! Yay, I want to make a guest appearance on your blog!! :)
So from what I understand, it has something to do with the foods that must be chewed and broken down in order to get the nutrients, which 1. food processor or blender? 2. maybe take it as a sign they are not developmentally ready for such food. I don't want to judge her, because to each their own, but I can't get past the idea of how grossed out I personally am thinking about eating food someone else has already chewed up. (not to mention that a lot the strep mutans that cause early childhood caries are passed through the parents saliva which is why it is recommend to not share utensils or drinks with babies.)
Exactly. There are BETTER WAYS to feed your child food that must be squished up.Cavities, strep throat, colds, flu, there are endless things that she could be passing along to her kid by chewing his food for him. Barf.
This is icks, but whatevs. Much worse: I have a friend who has a friend who owns one of those trucks that goes to festivals and fairs and makes funnel cakes and corndogs, etc. SHe tells a story about a wife who chewed the food for the husband because he had no teeth and spit it into his mouth. I believe this was at a country fair somewhere deep south. Working at fairs you see some pretty strange things, but she said this one left them the most in shock and awe.that's all I got. I did eat a jelly bean that A had in her mouth the other day because we were in an office and I didn't have anywhere to throw it away. It was not chewed, only slobbered on. I should have made a video and become an internwebs sensation. Another opportunity missed...
I just lost a little bit of my soul, reading your story about the husband and wife. I will never get it back.
I cannot imagine needing a funnel cake so badly that I required someone else to chew it for me. *shudders*
hahahaha. I do love a good funnel cake, but day-um. sorry to skeeve you JoJo. Go wash. you will feel better.
I'm grossed out too! Poor kid!!
Pretend you're this kid.Pretend you've forgotten about this.Then pretend you come across this when you're 20. Hoo, boy.If I found out my Mum did this when I was a toddler I'd not cope. I can't even watch the video, knowing what it's about. The thought of it makes me want to throw up with such force that my eyeballs spontaneously burst into flame.
Worse, after pretending you're this kid, pretend your friends come across this video too. You will hereafter be known as Regurgitation Ralph.
I just threw up in my mouth a little.Then I saved it to feed to Caius later.
I just saw this earlier today in a magazine. Why did it have to hit me twice in one day? I mean, ok, I get some of it. I've read Alicia Silverstone's book, "The Kind Life," and it's true that chewing is the first step in digestion. Saliva begins to break down the food--it's not just smashing it up or whatever. I get all that. She talks about how people don't chew their food enough. She says it should be thoroughly chewed into a pulp into your mouth with plenty of saliva first. So I guess she's thinking she's starting the process for her son who can't chew that much yet so it digests properly.Having said that, I have to now say that chewing MY OWN food as much as she advocates almost makes me sick, so I'm pretty f-ing sure I'm not going to be spitting into my kids mouth. I'm sorry. I just can't. I have to go. Oh man.
The book is called "The Kind Diet." Sorry. Her website is The Kind Life. I was too shaken up to get it right.
