Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

The little package of Ageless Oxygen Absorber, in the Beef Jerky Packages you find.

You know...I think I managed to get my son thru life (he's almost 18 years old) without him eating non-edible items. That's what you call a picky eater!

I don't have kids, but I purportedly ate a screw when I was young.

Half a cockroach. Apparently they don't taste good because she spit out the back half. We couldn't ask her about it - because she couldn't talk yet - so we can only speculate on the taste.

Her poop. She got into her diaper once after waking up from a nap, and when I walked in it was smeared on the crib, her clothes, hair, face and around and in her mouth. I still prefer this over half a roach though, Paulpnevada. I have an awful phobia of roaches.

It would have to be between LEGO bits and dead flies from the windowsill.

Oh, wait. The rat poop. Right.

Damn you, long-term memory, I told you to never mention that again.

There is never a bad time to not want to need something. Except now.

Mechanical Pencil Erasers. My daughter would eat them by the dozen if she found them ... which lead to some interesting diaper changes.

Once she made it to the cat box while the gate was down. Panic and desperate calls to the pediatrician followed by semi-hysterical laughter. And a few drinks during her naptime.

a worm off the driveway after a rainstorm. We were out there to play in the puddles and my daughter puts a worm in her mouth and slurps it in like spaghetti.

My oldest liked to lick and chew everything long beyond the timeline where that's acceptable (turns out she has some sensory issues - who'd have thunk it?). Windows were an issue, but the worst was that one time we found her chewing her dad's soldering lead.

Oh, we dealt with that, too! Poison control assured me that it isn't actually poisonous.

The furniture, she starts at the corners. She ate a crayon once, but that didn't bother me that much because they are just food grade wax and pigment.

I have to admit, some of the stuff kids eat is really funny.

I caught mine with his mitts in my tub of CJ's BUTTer which is a diaper cream. Luckily it is an all natural balm made of non toxic ingredients like coconut oil etc - but he was covered in it. On the plus side he smelled wonderful.

He also likes to go after our dog's chewing hoofs (actual animal hoofs for chewing - they smell awful - imagine the scent of one giant toenail that a dog chews on).

A foam "rubber" ducky that was SWAG from a tradeshow. She also looooves leaves and shares them with the dog. But she's only 9 months so the fun is just beginning.

Antique glass Christmas ornament. He was 2.

Listening to the voices is calming. Except for Fernado, he pushes my buttons.

what's wrong with woot? why isn't crap an answer when you know your kid ate some. I know mine did, but it wasn't on my watch so I didn't have to brush her teeth.

My wife woots too

You decide, either a worm or sand because he's eaten both.
