Save the Babies

I've written before about stupid things you can waste money on at Williams-Sonoma, but this stopped me in my tracks.

They are selling this monstrous countertop machine, the Beabo Babycook:

I don't have kids and I've never willingly cooed over an infant, but this upsets me. Cooking babies — French ones, juicy ones, fat ones, whatever — is just flat-out wrong. I know Williams-Sonoma is desperate to come up with new things to make gullible consumers buy, buy, buy, and I know that die-hard foodies will eat anything, but come on!

I also think the baby powder industry has a lot of explaining to do. More in a future post.
