Luiz Antonio only recently entered this world, but he's already made up his mind about eating the planet's animals: He wants nothing to do with it.

What starts off with a simple plea to eat his octopus gnocchi ends with the toddler's mom weeping tears of pride at hearing her son passionately speak out against consuming animal meat.

"When we eat animals they die!" Luiz Antonio exclaims. "I don't like that they die. I like that they stay standing up."

This kid is a genius: He just came up with a foolproof method of getting out of eating something he doesn't like.
