Conversation overheard in local grocery store -
The mother looks like one of those tennis moms, kid is boy, mid grade school, in striped shirt and shorts:
Kid: Hey Mom, they have purple cabbage!
Mom: What's purple cabbage?
Kid: It's the good kind! (singsong)Green Cabbage bad, Purple cabbage good. Can we get some Mom?
[you would think any normal parent would jump at the chance to encourage their child to eat veggies of any kind, not to mention having the kid beg for it...]
Mom: Well, how do you COOK it?
Kid: You don't cook it, you put it in salad. Can we get some? It's really yum.
Mom browses off.... totally ignoring the said cabbage.
Hell, I raised my kids vegetarian for the first half of their childhood, and I was still trying to get them to eat more veggies!
Some adults are just too farking stupid to make good parents.
