Why Do People Always Want to Eat Newborns?

The more newborn shoots I do, the more I realize, we're all really just inherently cannibals.  And it always comes out around newborn babies.  As soon as you put a little hat or tie on the baby, everyone wants to eat the newborn!  "Oh my gosh, he's so cute!! I just want to EAT HIM."  Without fail, every time.  It's as if the baby props are basically Nutella.  Sweet, delicious Nutella.

I believe it when they say there's no bond like a mother and her child.
