No, Chinese families are not eating 'baby salad'

Before you freak, no one is going to eat the baby.

A Chinese family simply decided to put their baby in a salad bowl and cover him head to toe in salad leaves in order to take these hilarious photos that are going viral online today.


A modest proposal


A joke which, apparently, "made the whole family laugh so hard their stomaches hurt."

Not too happy about his location in the salad bowl or his parents new found take on a baby leaf salad, the poor little guy looks pretty distressed.

Not for long though...



According to parents, "he tried to get up, but he was too young to do it," so instead it looks like he came to terms with the situation and decided to take a nap.

The predictably politically incorrect comments on the Daily Mail story have had us rolling on the floor laughing more than the baby pics though.

One comment read: "Greetings. I am from the future. It is bleak. Salad baby destroyed all hope for humanity." Another chimed in: "As Prince Phillip would say, if it has four legs and is not a chair, has wings and is not an aeroplane, or swims and is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it."
