Pregnant By Kraft Cheese

This afternoon M, C and I sat down to watch Animal Planet's Growing Up "Lion". It is a very cute program and is one that I will often use as part of M's Science education for his homebased education lessons.

As usual, the program was littered with commercials for a variety of products. One commercial stood out for all of us, though...

Kraft produced a commercial for their cheese slices. The commercial was cute in general, but M really enjoyed it. In fact, he put his own interpretation on the commercial and I wanted to share that today:

A young woman is standing in profile on a daily calendar (the kind of calendar that allows you to tear off a page as each day goes by). She is slim, pretty, and healthy. The bottom of the calendar reads "You are pregnant." The lady begins eating her Kraft grilled cheese sandwich and as the days fly off the calendar her belly begins to protrude with the growth of her baby. By the time the baby seems to be full term the sandwich is gone and Mom is cradling her tummy with baby safely inside.

As I said, the commercial was rather cute; but M's take was simply adorable! As the commercial closed, M started excitedly exclaiming: "That lady make her own baby by herself with food!!!!"

I had to obligingly replay the commercial so M could show and explain how the lady used the sandwich to impregnate herself!!!

C just stared at us as if we were crazy, even with the numerous explanations!

How funny! Not that teenage pregnancy is funny, but I can't help but laugh at the thought of my parents' reaction had it happened to me, and had I given "cheese" as the excuse. Ooops!
