Found Friday: Children's Menu

While eating at the Springfield Diner last weekend, I noticed the rather amusing and somewhat horrifying children's menu.




Children's Menu
For a larger size, click on photo. Then, on Flickr page,
select "Actions" and pull it down to "View All Sizes"



The children's menu tries to appeal to kids by using cartoon names. But ordering the "Nemo" and getting a fish fillet? Or ordering the "Big Bird" and getting chicken fingers? Can you say "creepy"?

And yes, I know that they serve all sorts of things at Disney World made in the shape of Mickey's ears. But wouldn't it be horrific if the food being consumed was actually made of mice?

At least now we know what Pokemons really are: roast turkey.

Moral:
Generally speaking, kids prefer not to eat their favorite characters.

Better made of mice than of mice droppings...

but, yeah, someone was not thinking when they came up with that menu...
or if they were thinking, I don't want to know what...

Maybe, "Let's turn all the kids into vegetarians."

The "Hulk" is a Grilled Cheese? I hate to see what happens if it actually did come out green... :-p

Maybe it's hard enough to smash the table with it?

While they're infringing copyrights all over the place, why not just use Spongebob? (That is, who the hell is Sea Captain Stan?)

Maybe because they don't sell sponge cake?

I bet there are kids who do cry when they hear the options!

I have never been able to stomach the idea of eating kangaroo ever since someone joked about "eating Skippy" when I was like 8 and it traumatised me ;) Same with venison = eating Bambi. THAT is possibly the way to turn kids vegetarian!
