I just thought this was funny. For once, the comments on an article are actually more amusing than annoying, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>

I'd flip out if someone did that to my (theoretical) kid. Especially when that young, too.

They did the kid a favor. Nobody should have to eat at Applebee's sober.</div>

Like the people who left the comments said, how did anyone not notice it was a margarita and not apple juice before the kid drank it? Did the server put salt on the rim of the glass with the apple juice by mistake, too?

Some of the comments really were funny:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Ok,no one mentions the pissed off guy who ordered a margaritta and got an apple juice.</div>
</div>
<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">I hope they took away the keys to his Tonka truck</div>
</div>
<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Mom became suspicious when her chilld and the kid from the E-Trade commercial starting hitting on the cougars at happy hour.</div>
</div>
<br>
Given how stupid the comments usually are on Yahoo, this is a vast improvement. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

Lol, the comments are great. And they're just interviewing lawyers Papayamon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I'm sure a mistake as severe as that is worth atleast a couple million dollars, right?

I don't even drink, and *I* can tell the difference between an apple juice and a martini. I hope that idiot lost their job.

I find it ironic that the mother is only 18 and the father is also under 21 and aren't legally allowed to drink yet their son is sipping on a margarita.

The CNN article on this debacle says that:<br><br><a href="http://articles.cnn.com/2011-04-11/us/michigan.toddler.alcohol_1_apple-juice-toddler-restaurant?_s=PM:US" target="_blank">Linksareashark!</a>

Oh! I thought somebody was being snarky about the parent drinking (when it says they were having smoothies).

They have to start sometime. Why hide them from the truth?

this is a horrible situation and I didnt know the parents were underage....I am not a parent and wanna preface this by saying that but they didnt look at the drink or smell it.....when I baby sit family or friends kids I am uber paranoid at home and at restaurants about what I am allowing them to eat./drink....I am just suprised the parents didnt notice.....not judging....just curious.<br><br>

No, they really don't.<br><br><br>
But here's another way of looking at it...****, this kid's born into a world where the average person eats corpses every day and where "gay" is used as a pejorative term. I'd say he'll be poisoned in one way or another growing up regardless.

I saw this news this morning. Maybe if it wasn't so dark in all their chains (in broad daylight), they would have been able to distinguish a margarita with an apple juice!<br><br>
This could have turned out worst than it did. They're just lucky the child is ok.

Ironic that <i>Applebee's</i> can't even get an order for <i>apple juice</i> right.<br><br>
Glad the boy is alright because he had a desginated driver.
