Today’s Theme: Baby Eating


Welcome Dear Readers! Well it seems the time has finally come to talk about baby eating, a topic that some of you may find a tad offensive. However, for those of you brave enough to continue reading past this point → •, let’s dig in and talk about baby eating, shall we?

Cue the first slide:

Disaster-Being-eaten-Lion-eating-baby
NO! WAIT! Don’t eat my baby!  At least let me run home and get the ketchup first!

Is it just me, or does this woman look like she’s not really trying very hard to save her baby?  I mean, she could just reach over and pry the baby out of the lions mouth.  Maybe she could even get the lion to open his mouth on his own with a few “here kitty kitty’s.” But no.  Instead she looks like she’s about to say, “Wait here while I run home and get the rest of my children. I’ll be back in two shakes of a lambs tail and I’ll even bring the lamb for dessert.”

Cue the next slide:

Medieval-Mythology-Saturn-eating-babies
Excuse me honey, sorry to bother you while you’re . . . uh . . .  whatever-ing, but can I have some money? The traveling baby-spice salesman is here.

Okay, here’s a mother who will clearly never make mother of the year.  She seems far more concerned with the fact that the window washer is squeegeeing the underside of her husband’s calf than with the fact that one of her babies is playing with a fire-breathing dragon while another one is being eaten whole by a farmer on his lunch break.

And don’t you get the feeling that the man at the gate just sold her a case of Big Daddy Magellan’s Medieval Mesquite Baby Seasoning Salt?

And the next slide please:

Mythology-Demon-Demon-eating-people1
These aren’t really babies he’s eating, but in keeping with our baby-eating theme, let’s just pretend they are, shall we?

Okay, here’s a baby eater that can’t even keep up!  He’s got babies coming out of his ears!  Clearly this baby eater has it all, wings, a full head (and body) of hair and a bellybutton that looks like Mickey Mouse. And even though he’s feasting on a baby, he still has rather kind eyes, don’t you think?

In fact, I have a feeling he’d make a better mother than the other mothers pictured above.  Maybe that why people babies  are lining up to be eaten by him — probably figuring that since they’re going to be eaten anyway — they might as well be eaten by a kind sort of monster — at least one who has a belly button shaped like Mickey Mouse.

Linda Vernon Humor Baby Eating
“Hey! Getting my leg bitten off isn’t even making me cry. Well that’s refreshingly unexpected!”

Whoa!  Here’s a baby eater that can clearly pack it away (and probably never gain a pound!).  He’s got no qualms about chowing down on a baby two-thirds his size. I just hope his eyes don’t prove to be bigger than his stomach and I just hope his stomach is able to handle an entire baby-leg in one bite.

Nobody would eat a baby like this today.  The potential for choking is far to great! We can only assume that this man is competing in some sort of Medieval  baby-eating contest for which the prize is an all you can eat baby buffet.  Let’s just hope he’s got a big supply of Big Daddy Magellan’s Medieval Mesquite Baby Seasoning Salt on hand cause he’s gonna need it!

And that concludes today’s baby-eating themed post.  And if you enjoyed it enough, perhaps there will be more Baby-Eating Themed posts in this blog’s future.

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. This brought up some very painful memories for me.
    Because a dingo ate my baby!!!
    (anyone? anyone?)

    Oh, and the mother in the first pic couldn’t dart after the lion, or it would have made the painting blurry.

    • And here you were finally coming to grips with the dingo eating your baby . . . I’ve got to remember never to bring up the subject of baby eating when you’re around! Sometimes my brain, Peanuts can be so awkwardly insensitive! 😀

  2. Oh, this one made me giggle. I can tell that lion is over-tenderising the baby, you need to respect your ingredients. It’s not the done thing these days is it, of course it’s not as bad as eating veal but it’ll soon end up that way

  3. My mind is wondering…..what is with these artists and baby eating?! Wow, enough to give one nitemares. And people wonder why I have no kids. ahaha! 🙂

  4. The farmer one looks more like the grim reaper deciding which kid smells the best to take. Modern day baby eating has been stymied by risk assessment procedures which take so long the actual baby eating dates are passed before the fun can begin. All a bit disappointing really.

    • LOL!! Something tells me you might have spent a few years as a professional in baby preservatives! I can only imagine how many people you’ve saved from the heartbreak of eating expired babies! My bonnet’s off to you Summers! 😀

  5. I really liked this one! I had some different perspectives, but I won’t gob up your space with my interpretations. Suffice it to say: I may steal some pics and interpret. 😉

  6. It’s a good thing I just put Henry down for a nap. All this baby eating is making me hungry!

    Judging by all these medieval pictures I’d say there must have been a vitamin shortage that made people crave babies. Vitamin B perhaps.

    • I got these pics from a really fun site called Vintage Printables and they all are in the public domain. I can’t remember now how I thought the idea up in the first place though LOL!

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
