image for Kiddie Cappuccinos Sold in Brooklyn; Ho-Hum, Say Kids Out of the mouths of babes.........

The latest rage in Park Slope Brooklyn is the fake cappuccino, developed to convince toddlers they're getting designer drinks just like the ones adults are ordering up. Yeah, right!

A spoof reporter who understands baby talk has conducted interviews with a number of Brooklyn toddlers and has discovered that they are not deceived. Moreover, they are disgusted by the charade. Here's a sample of their comments:

-- "My mom and dad are idiots to pay these prices for frothed-up milk with a few chocolate sprinkles on top. What a crock!"

-- "The fake cappuccino isn't that bad, but actually (close your ears, Michelle Obama!) I'd rather have an ice cold Coke."

-- "I smile and giggle when they give me my cappuccino, just to make my parents feel they're getting their money's worth. But really, the joke's on them, poor things."

-- "Give me a REAL Oreo cookie over a fake cappuccino any day."

-- "I wish they'd shove the fake cappuccino where the sun doesn't shine. If mom and dad want me to think I'm just like them, let them buy me a couple of gadgets; y'know, an iPhone, an iPod, a Kindle Fire, etc. Then we'll talk."

Art Linkletter was right. Kids DO say the darndest things.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
