how to empty a plate, in 5 seconds or less

At the dinner table the other night: "Those green beans really want to go to your tummy, BR.  There's a party in your tummy going on and they want to get in there and dance!"

The girls looked over at me, with looks of utter disdain.  Okay, so maybe he was too old for that one, but it was worth a try anyway. 

L.: "They want to fight, you mean.  BR, they want to get into your tummy and then fight."

The mama is so out of touch.
