What typical children's snack makes you go "o_O WTF?!"

I never used to wonder about Animal Crackers. Such a nice, innocent little snack that can teach young children about animals and be fun and tasty at the same time, right? I used to think that.

That was before I listened to my daughter eating them earlier today. Now I wonder what mentally disturbed card-carrying member of the NRA invented Animal Crackers thinking that they would be just SO awesome for children! XD

I hear my daughter narrating while she eats. "Adriyan, I'm eating its legs. Adriyan, look, I'm eating its head. *giggle* Adriyan, I just ate its butt."

Me: o_O WTF?! *shakes head and walks away* My daughter is a strange sort of cracker carnivore.

All kids: *laughing their butts off at Silly Mommy*

LMAO It just sounded so violently morbid, the discussion of the consumption of body parts. And now you know why I'm starting to wonder if Animal Crackers are really such a good idea as a snack

  • Thanks for making me laugh! And letting me know I'm not the only mother to a head eater! My girl used to do the same thing with her gummy bears and animal crackers. Head first, butt next, legs, arms, then torso. And she'd do this maniacal laugh each time. Creepy!

  • LMAO! I've always thought that about animal crackers. And gingerbread men. And any other candy, cookie, etc. that looked like something living.
