Uh, why not? the kid was probably wondering. And this mom from MI is not the only one having to deal with kids putting food in, um, interesting places:
"An English muffin is not a floppy disk to put in daddy's computer" - said to a 3-4 year old in the 80's after dad's computer went down.
"Tucker, get that string bean out of your nose." - a dad said he remembers calling home while on a business trip..."I no sooner asked 'how are things going?' than my wife turned away from the receiver and shouted those words."
"Bananas do not go into the toilet." - posted in a preschool class list of rules. This mom explains, "Apparently this was enough of a problem that the teacher felt the practice needed to be formally banned."
This is quite a popular topic and there are many, many more hilarious quotes related to food in strange spots, so I'll stop now and continue later!
