From: Out of the Mouths of Babes by Eric Michael Johnson at Primate Diaries

Sometimes the best response to a viral image is satire or a mash-up. After TIME Magazine’s cover by Martin Schoeller proved provocative about attachment parenting and breast feeding, The Primate Diaries’ Eric Michael Johnson tackles the issue from the perspective of anthropology and primatology in his post Out of the Mouths of Babes. Primate Diaries regular artist, Nathaniel Gold once again proves his savvy for an enlightening image with Attachment.
