I'm sure by now you've heard of Gordon Ramsay. He's the British head chef and star of television's reality show "Hell's Kitchen." He's also something of a world-class chef, from what I understood. From what I understand now, he's also a father.

And this father has some unusual suggestions regarding getting his children--his daughter, to be exact--to eat vegetables. According to Chef Ramsay, he gets his daughter to eat her leafy greens by telling her they'll make her boobs get bigger! Ramsay admits he tells his ten-year-old daughter, Megan, this story, and that she believes him. His proof? He claims she eats whole heads of lettuce and says, "Dad, look!"

Before I know it, I will have a daughter on my hands. Eventually, she will be old enough to wonder such things as what might make her breasts bigger. I'm more inclined to leave such things to the schoolyard than try this trick. I'm not sure what freaks me out more--Gordon talking to his daughter about her boobs (which shouldn't really be such a big deal), his assistance in helping her think they need to be bigger, or the fact that he refers to them as 'boobies!' Ah, to each their own I suppose.
