Out of the mouths of babes ... come some pretty amazing words sometimes. Take this little boy from Brazil, for example. Luiz Antonio was just sitting in his high chair, getting ready to eat a plate of potato gnocchi, rice, and octopus -- when something suddenly occurred to him: "This octopus isn't real, right?"
Any parent who's ever attempted to feed a toddler some sort of meat has most likely witnessed the same milestone moment of truth. I remember my daughter squinting at her plate and saying, "Chicken! Like the chicken say 'bock, bock!'" (Except actually she said "kitchen" because she used to get "chicken" and "kitchen" mixed up, but that's beside the point.) When my daughter realized that chicken was chicken, she just sort of shrugged and kept eating. But not Luiz the future animal activist.
