Tastes Like Chicken

The other night we were having chicken wings for dinner. Connor and Liam were pretending they were eating dinosaurs instead of chicken when Liam decides to throw some variety into the game.
Connor: I'm eating a pteranodon.
Liam: I'm eating an airplane.
Connor: You can't eat an airplane.
Liam: No, the guy who flies it.
He's a bucket load of cute, but I'm having trouble sleeping now.




PS. Yes, he's eating ice cream in this picture but I didn't have any of him eating a make believe human part.

  1. Sounds like something Indy would say! And I'd be very afraid.

  2. I don't want to throw a spanner in the works but that's an ice-cream, not chicken.

    *blink*

    In Canada, do you guys have chicken-flavoured ice-cream? Or on that note, what about ice-cream-flavoured chicken?

  5. The way it showed in my dashboard was with the headline and that picture. It made for a WTH moment.

    That is very funny.

  7. Grilled cheese men are a gateway comestible, you know...It starts with them and then...well, you see where its going, don't you?

    Sweet dreams, my friend :)

  8. LMMFHO!!! That is too funny, eating the pilot. HEH!

    I'm gonna play 'for the sake of sleepy time devil's advocate'. Perhaps ... he wanted to be the dinosaur doing the eating, thus eating the person ... flying the itty bitty people plane?

    See that's where I would have gone with it ... if only for the sake of my sanity!

  9. That kid is gonna do what he has to do to survive.

  10. It's perfect. He's got that, "HELLO - I'm not stupid enough to eat an airplane, you idiot. It's the human - YUM - duh."

  11. I believe that's pretty much how Jeffrey Dahmer started out.

    ReplyDelete
  12. well...if you have any animals that go missing...that is when I would sleep with one eye open..or if he wants his own freezer for Christmas!

  13. The cone does kind of look like a femur bone. Just sayin'.

  15. My niece and nephew had chicken for fingers not too long and ago and Mistah asked our niece, "I didn't even get to see you at dinner last night. What did you have?"

    "Um, chicken.... chicken hands."

    Now we call *every* piece of chicken we eat "chicken hands."

  16. If he asks for Fava beans and Chianti, you need to run like hell and don't look back.

  17. hahaha that's awesome! I think it's funny that he had such a good comeback :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. hahaha. Very funny. And I love the picture of him eating his ice cream. Such a serious expression for a little boy. :)

  19. To this day, I still can't help but think back to childhood when I eat broccoli. I used to pretend I was a dinosaur eating trees.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe he's been reading some of your ZNN posts...preparing for the inevitable.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Don't let him watch "Silence of the Lambs" anytime soon.

    I can't believe you didn't make a grilled cheese body part for the photo op!

  22. L-O-L! You're kids have so much personality!

    ReplyDelete
  23. well, I guess I have found my smoking gun. Canadians are cannibals. I mean, we've always suspected, it's in the name and all...

    I've forwarded this post to homeland security. We've moved out "wall" from mexico to Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I love it! Quick thinking on his part. And here I always heard cannibals were on some isolated island somewhere, who'd have thunk they are in Canada?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my, your posts are so often so enjoyable. This one sure tickled me and had me smiling.

    BTW, also appreciate the posts that make me think - ah, of great and serious concepts.

    ReplyDelete
  26. hheheheh he seems to have gotten dads sense of humor, lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, one of your boys knows what a pteranodon is and the other doesn't know that a guy who flies a plane is called a Pilot or Captain. Strange education system you have.
    What is your boy imagining that ice cream he's eating is? Great photo.

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOVE that face!!!!! Man I love some of the stuff that comes out of kids mouths

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do your kids do that thing when they eat animal crackers where they bite off the heads of the animals and make little screaming noises? :P

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those two sound like very interesting kids, really! :D
    I'd like to know how it'll be when the 3'rd is old enough to be a part of it all! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Have you seen Ricky Gervais guest star on the F-word with Gordon Ramsey? First it's eating animals with names, then it's cousins. It's not a far jump from a wing to a pilot, I'm just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The shit they come up with is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I guess I would take the attitude that he moved from eating dinosaurs, to being a dinosaur,and only then onto eating pilots.
    Does that help any?

    ReplyDelete
  34. My youngest went through a dino phase too... he was a carnivor to everone he encountered. Then he found out dinos were canibals as well, so then he became a canabalistic carnivor. Now he wants to be a secret agent. God help us all if he puts them all together.

    ReplyDelete
  35. that's a boy who is much too comfortable with eating meat products...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  36. HAAA! Keep him away from chicken bones...apparently, everything tastes like chicken.

  37. My two little ones are into being a vampire or a werewolf. I have no idea where they are getting this stuff. *blinks innocently*

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm eating my words. But I do that a lot.

    Those boys have ramped up their cuteness factors!

    ReplyDelete
  39. You should tell the boys that Girl Scout cookies are made with real Girl Scouts.

    ReplyDelete
  40. very insightful that boy...wait til he's 5!
    ps MelanieD's post, what do you mean, "one
    of Mom's hats!" Is that a slur on Red Hatters?

  41. If he starts throwing spices at you, run.

  42. I was going to leave a witty comment, but I got distracted by the trainwreck that is Private Practice. Sorry. :-(

  43. Hell, I'M worried, and I'm 2 provinces away.

    ReplyDelete
  44. All of a sudden I'm really glad we never figured out we were in the same province before I moved away. :)

  45. How's that therapy fund going? I might throw a few extra bucks in for cannibalistic tendencies....

  46. Gotta love it! Sometimes I wonder if I'm raising a kid with a healthy immagination or a serial killer.

  47. Oh that scowl is wonderful. You've gotta love a good scowl with the eyebrow wrinkle. I can see him in an eyepatch like the old man yelling, "Aye!! Ye scurvy nave!!"

    ReplyDelete
  48. He's gonna kick some teacher's ass.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My sister would pitch a fit about this because your son said "the guy" flying the airplane instead of "the person". LOL :-) It's only because I've been berated so many times that I noticed. Funny.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I hope he never gets stranded in the Andes with a rugby team. It would be like a buffet! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  51. just looking at that cone is giving me a craving for ice cream...with that magic shell, hard chocolate dip on it. Yumtastic!

    p.s. when you tried to leave a comment, what did it do? i tried to comment to myself and it let me and it showed up. i love comments, so I hate to know that it might be screwed up so I can't receive any! :) have a good weekend dude!

    ReplyDelete
  52. everything tastes like chicken... even a pilot ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Eating people is just a natural part of growing up.

    ReplyDelete

    But I am going to give you a secret - I don´t like chicken.

  55. Okay, if he gets hungry and starts jonesing for a human, I would like to volunteer my ex.....he might be a bit marinated in the "sauce" if you know what I mean, but he could be some good eating

  56. If you all ever survive a plane crash in the Andes, you better watch your back.
