WTF?

My daughter would just say "I don't like the red thing!" (or green thing, or whatever color she doesn't want to eat that day)

My son would probably shove the whole thing in his mouth without realizing what it was. Or play with it until it was inedible.

How does this guy have this kind of time?

There's something slightly pathetic and highly disturbing about that.
 
2010-01-11 08:12:56 AM  
It's clear he spends time on it, but I'm with the people who say they'd either shovel it in their mouth or play with it.

I've wasted more time doing dumber things.

NEEEERRRD! Although it's cool he's that devoted to his kid. I guess.

The kid's "other daddy" has a full time job

When my sister and I were in School, dad would pack our lunches and everyday there would be an index card with a famous historical quote. Probably didn't take too long but looking back, it's just one of those things that showed us he cared.

70% cool.

I'm going to go with this, but I think it is cool. Sure the kid may have hesitance to eat the "red thing," but I think less so. Good on one of my two dads.

"hey dad, wanna go outside and throw the football around with me and create some classic childhood memories while deepening the bond between us?"

"not now son, i've got to spend 3 more hours creating your lunch for tomorrow, which you will inevitably trade away to one of your classmates for a spiderman lunchable."

Yeah, I've done Subby's sister, too.

Wait'll you see what Japanese mothers do with their kid's bento box.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Yep. Just thinking that.
 
2010-01-11 10:52:35 AM  
Well I'm totally stealing this idea for my kid when she goes to school. Now that's just cool.
 
2010-01-11 10:54:11 AM  
Did subby get any money for posting that?

Nothing new really, the Japanese have done this for years. Just google "Bento Box Art" and you'll see what I mean.
 
2010-01-11 10:55:45 AM  
Having not read TFA, I just now realized how in the gutter my mind is when reading these comments without their proper context.

*clicks article*

Yup. I'm a sick person.
 
2010-01-11 10:56:05 AM  
Stay at home dad? His greatest skill seems to be unmarketable.
 
2010-01-11 10:57:06 AM  
"hey hero lunch kid. give me your milk money."
 
2010-01-11 10:57:22 AM  
This just screams, "look everyone I care about my kid more than you do your own! I am the best dad that ever lived!"

I don't know, the whole is thing is just a bit OCD for a kid's lunch. Very creepy.
 
2010-01-11 10:57:25 AM  
My issue is the practicality of it. How is a six year old going to eat a meal that is laid out as art without making a mess of everything. Kids have crappy hand eye coordination, that's why we give them sandwiches.

/just jealous

Sorry, but this dad is way cooler. This is the "treehouse" he built for his kids. I'd link to the original page, but it seems to be lost to the winds in the tubes.

Gah, video link. Boo!
 
2010-01-11 10:59:27 AM  
That's pretty cool looking.
Everyone has hobbies. His is modified Bento Box Art.
He may do this after the kid goes to sleep at night instead of posting on Fark or watching football.

Get a job, hippie!

[/snark]

Ok, that was pretty awesome. I'd just hate it if the school bully took the sandwich.

/I chuckled at the Lunch lady land reference, too
 
2010-01-11 11:00:20 AM  
I know how you guys feel.

Just like you, my immediate reaction to witnessing someone else's superior creativity and devotion to their child is to call names and cast aspersions.

But then i smother the impulse and say "that's pretty cool of him."

And i am able to do that because i am better than all of you.

It's a short jump from 'cute with lunches' to overly obsessive helicopter parent.

Genie: I'm telling you, nice to be back, ladies and gentlemen. Hi! Where you from? What's your name?
Aladdin: Uh... A-A-Aladdin.
Genie: Aladdin! Hello, Aladdin. Nice to have you on the show. Can we call you Al, or maybe just Din? Or, how 'bout Laddie?
[turns into a Scotsman]
Genie: It sounds like, "Here, boy!"
[whistles]
Genie: C'mon, Laddie!
[turns into a dog]

He named his kid Laddie....wow.

I'm going with 51/49
 
2010-01-11 11:01:33 AM  
Huh. When the video first started and there was that one little kid sitting all by himself, I said, "Bingo!" (or Laddie.)
 
2010-01-11 11:01:38 AM  
Coolest? What about this guy who tried to hire a prostitute for his 14 year old son?

Sniff. I miss you, dad.
 
2010-01-11 11:02:16 AM  
Ugh. So THAT's what happens when you let the gays adopt.

karmaceutical: Gah, video link. Boo!

Agreed. I don't understand why affiliates and shiatty "news" sites feel the need for video when some text and pictures is easier to put together, easier to digest, cheaper and doesn't clog up all the goddamned tubes.
 
2010-01-11 11:03:18 AM  
Do i detect a whiff of "but, but my Dad..."? Yeah, your Dad was too busy doing whatever to play ball with you.
He's probably a skilled pastry chef bored out of his gourd who loves his son. That and doesn't want him trading it for packaged crap. Kid's probably a bit of a picky eater to begin with. Dad's just making sure he eats when not at home.

No wait. I do. People are dumb and they see higher ad revenue from video links. It's PEOPLES fault.

Goddamn people.
