Since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by the fact that some animals feed their young by eating something, then regurgitating it into their mouth. First, let me say how happy I am that humans are not among the species with this charming habit, and secondly, perhaps we should be. Some babies have difficulty digesting certain kinds of foods and perhaps a little pre-digestion would be a good thing. If anyone decides to try this with their own baby, let me know how it turns out, and remember that I am not a doctor nor even a particularly well-educated person so don’t blame me if your baby is irreparably damaged by this experiment.












As long as I’m helping raise other people’s kids, why not try turning your child’s life completely over to the Internet like this fine fellow? It’s going to happen eventually anyway.












This Lincoln gag is one of my favorites in a long time. I have my buddy, Cliff Harris The King Of Wordplay to thank for it. I wish I was this clever, but, alas, I guess I’m not.










BYGONE BIZARRO: Just so you don’t think I’m not clever at all, here’s one of my favorite gags from my archives that deals with the baby-food-puke issue. Bon Appétit! Bz BirdPuke 10-05-07 SM

  1. I have seen a mother chew up food and then feed it to her baby.

    That kid has a pretty nifty bedroom.

    Clever answer to the Lincoln, Lincoln I’ve been thinkin’ rhyme.

    Thanks, Dan.

  2. Some people do pre-chew food for their babies. Alicia Silverstone is a famous example. It’s also the done thing in China. It makes me quite ill to think about it, but maybe that’s just me.

  3. Up to a certain point in history, and still done some places today, all human mothers pre-chewed food for their babies. No regurgitation, that I’m aware of, since we have hands with which to carry food.

  4. I’m reminded of a Futurama in which Bender had recently recovered from living among penguins – under the delusion that he was one. Penguin chicks flocked around him – and he regurgitated food for them. He then said to Fry “I look down into their little faces, and it just makes me want to puke. But in a good way!”

  5. Actually, there may still be small tribes that do “birding” still. Some “civilized” humans are bringing this back. Alicia Silverstone made the news a couple of years ago showing a video of her feeding her baby by prechewing his food and then depositing directly from her mouth to his. I guess our ancestors did this long before blenders and whatnot were used to make baby food. I could not have brought myself to do this. (Sorry I don’t have cites, I’m sure this can be looked up on the web.)

    About 23-26 years ago when I had my babies, I did read that they could eat table (adult) food once they could take solids as long as you passed the food through a food mill, which I did as much as I could.

    Meanwhile, as humorous as ever. Thank you very much.

  6. Mothers chewing food and feeding it to baby is not at all unheard of. It may be quite uncommon in modern western societies, but it goes back a long way. I have a friend whose mother used to do just that. She would chew something up, put it out onto a spoon and feed it to baby. It was a bit eew to me as a teenager, but nowadays (I think) I have a better understanding of this. (don’t get me wrong, I love the cartoon, and full kudos for it (and all of them on this page), just letting you know there is more to this)

  7. Bill Maher recently had Chris Hardwicke (of @midnight on Comedy Central) on Real Time as a guest. Perhaps ‘Winning the Internet’ on his show springboard you to The Big Time…. ;]

  8. What has happened to one of your other good friends “Wayno?” Neither in your comics or his blog have he been heard from….
