It's not always a positive thing to have your surname immortalized in verb form. "Tebow" may be quirky and complimentary, but "Sheen"? Clear negative connotations there. In Jimmy Kimmel's capable hands, the newest name-verb -- to "Silverstone" (or to pre-chew food for your children) -- is pure comic gold.
In honor of Alicia Silverstone's controversial premastication video, Kimmel asked parents to submit videos of their kids' responses to pre-chewed meals; the best entries were compiled and broadcast Monday night. Don't stop watching until you see the boy who screams, "I don't want your germs to chew it!" (at the 1:30 mark) or -- our favorite -- the little girl who's flat-out speechless (4:20).
Of course, the scenarios depicted in these clips are not quite the equivalent of Silverstone's feeding technique. Premastication of food for infants is a thing; pre-chewing for grown kids most certainly is not, as the feedback in Kimmel's video makes clear.
