This slow motion video of babies eating lemons for the first time is bittersweet.
Sweet, sour, cute and cruel.
At first glance, this compilation of babies tasting lemons for the first time seems kind of mean and exploitative, but it's actually an invaluable life lesson which will better prepare them for the sweet and sour nature of the human condition. Whether it's a piece of fruit, a kindergarten teacher or a Match.com profile, just because something or someone appears to be sweet at first, it can still leave you in tears with a bitter taste in your mouth. We all learn that lesson eventually, so you may as well get it out of the way while you're able to dry your eyes with the bib around your neck.
Also, you can usually trust your parents. That is, until they pull out the video camera, then they're liable to subject you to all sorts of cruel treatment, all in the name of a few YouTube hits.
