Chairs, you got a dinette set. No chairs, you got dick!

That works great...I bet that would work even better now that my kids are teenagers and easily embarrassed. They don't necessarily have to have a fit, I might just do it traumatize them and amuse myself.
I should try that...
I like the way the baby in the shopping cart reacts. What a cutie! :)
Excellent. I usually just start singing show tunes. Works every time.
We have our satellite aimed at the VERY narrow BBC Freeview beam from England, and this ad comes on a lot. I LOVE it.First Defence works pretty well, btw...it stops about 3 out of 10 colds from forming. It can also cut the duration and intensity of the cold once it comes on. CAN. Not always.And yeah, I have done exactly this when Max was about to pitch a major warbler ages back. I wasn't that loud, but yeah, I did it. Worked like a charm, too.
Oh, yeah, I can see myself doing that. Love her little head tilt at the end: "there, made my point?" -- haven't done it with someone else's kid yet, but I've come close...
I've heard that works... lol. I just might try that.
Having once made my toddler throw up (all over the dinner table, three times) by pretending to cry one time, I am too traumatized to ever try this. It's an awesome commercial, though. And I agree with MountainMama - the look and head tilt she does after she's done tantrumming is the best part :-)WV: nogiade - a preventative for eggnog-induced hangovers?
I never tried that but once there was a kid about 6 years old jumping up and down in a shopping basket screaming at the top of his lungs, knocking stuff off the shelf. His mom was up the isle a little ways not paying any attention to him at all (probably hoping someone would take the little brat).So I strolled over and told him to shhhh, then I leaned in and whispered. "If you don't stop this right now a clown is going to come to your house and kill your parents in the night." He fell instantly silent with a dumbfounded look on his face.I walked back to where my wife was and she asked how I did that. I told her is just asked him nicely to be quiet.
I do that every time they close the bar. Not so cute though.

He fell instantly silent with a dumbfounded look on his face.Oh God, that is just so wrong. What's even worse is that I totally pictured that kid losing his shit every time he saw a clown after that...word veri: evelosh, what Eve became after Adam invented booze.
I used to do this with my daughter, although not publicy and not as enthusiastically. It stops them in their tracks!
Randy - YOU ROCK.
I've tried this. Didn't work.
Worked with my niece. I don't take my kids to the grocery very often.
