FREMONT, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just because corporate honchos wear a grown-up suit to work doesn’t mean they’re not whiny little babies.

Just wait and see at the National Baby Food Festival this Wednesday (Jul. 21) through Saturday (Jul. 24) in Fremont, Michigan – the birthplace of Gerber baby foods.

Attendees will participate in infant-style competitions like a baby food eating contest, baby crawl race, and a cooking showdown where one ingredient has to be baby food.

While most of the grown-up contenders can play without acting like crybabies, the corporate suits that participate tend to throw major tantrums.

Spokesman Ron Vliem says there’s an event called “The Corporate Olympics” in which local business owners have to compete in their own baby-inspired games like a tricycle race and diaper throwing.

It gets so intense, they kick and scream just like bratty kids.

Vliem explains, “Corporate types tend to be babies anyway, but the get much more competitive here.”
