Sh*t Crunchy People Say – A Comedy Quartet

It started as a silly homage to a video that was blowing up at the time, Sh*t Girls Say. We put the call out on Facebook, and hundreds of natural mamas like you helped us write this first one.

Sh*t Crunchy Mamas Say

To our surprise, a few hundred thousand people found that video in the first few days. Well, that was fun! So much so, that we did it again the next month, once again written by our Facebook community.

Sh*t Crunchy Mamas Say – Part 2

Not to be outdone, Papa Natural got into the act with this version for dads (again, written by all of YOU).

Sh*t Crunchy Dads Say

So far, these videos have been seen over one million times total! That’s a lot of crunchy living goodness going out into the world.

And now, here is part four!

Sh*t Crunchy Pregnant Mamas Say

So far, these videos have been seen around two million times! That’s a lot of crunch that you’ve helped us put out into the world, so THANK YOU!

  1. I don’t know how I found this site but once I clicked on the crunchy videos I LAUGHED OUT LOUD…and I was alone in a hotel room…!
    OMG there are other people out there saying what I say…?! Thank you for teaching me I’m not that weird after all!
    I SO agree with the idea of a kids’ crunchy video “mom! there’s no hydrogenation!” That would hit close to home!

    • I second the motion of doing a Crunchy Kids video. .I actually have 5 year olds at my homeschool co-op asking me if the snack is gluten free or has high fructose corn syrup. .those kids are out there. .

  2. So funny! I was excited to see the tula and refrence to baby wise.

  3. You can tell by my email that I’m an older dad. I have two adult children from my first marriage and am now blessed with a one year old from my second. I’m so confused. Lol

  4. Love , love, love these !!
    you must do more!!
    from the crunchy teenager

  5. Hilarious crunchy mom’s!

  6. You should do a ‘sh*t crunchy kids say.’

  7. Ha Ha. I related to almost everything in these. Love it!

  8. Thank you for helping me feel less alone. 🙂

  9. hysterical!

  10. Well done! LOL! Please do one with crunchy kids sayings!

  11. Love the videos, they always make me laugh. My children are starting to show signs of crunchyness. Here’s some sh*t they say.

    I’m homeschooled, Are these vegetables organic? Mom, do we have almond milk? Mom, that baby needs a boobie. Is it Tula time yet? What flavor is our diffuser today? I’m sure there’s more I’m missing but my point is the whole family is officially crunchy

  12. I hope if there’s another one it includes things like “My baby poops in the toilet” and two words – “Elimination Communication”. Seriously, protect the earth from plastics while reducing shit smeared on baby butt, and making diaper laundry sooooo much easier (no, to poop sprayer isn’t necessary). Less shit on baby’s ass = life is easier in long run! Thanks for the great videos!

  13. These are all brilliant and spot on! Just shared 🙂
    You know what gets me though? If there are so many of us “crunchies” out there, why the feck are we the weird ones? Don’t those conventional living folk know that They are the freaking weird ones! Yes we think it’s weird that you fill your bodies with chemical sh*t!! Amongst other things!

  14. This is me. I am so happy I found this website.

  15. I cannot wait to show these to my husband! So funny. There needs to be a “sh*# crunchy KIDS say” like “you were born in a hospital?” And “more kombucha, please” and “what’s a vaccine?” Teehee.

    • Such a good idea. I’ve actually heard an 8 year old crunchy kid say to his mom, “mom, this has white flour. I shouldn’t eat it.”

    • My husband and I were talking about this!! Our daughters are so funny when they don’t know we are listening! I have overheard them say things like: “Okay, we can buy it, there is no soy in it!” and “Does your baby like egg yolk? Mine does”…I would love to see another video with kids!!

      • I love these – happy to be a crunchy mama, and I can so relate to these videos. I agree on a crunchy kids one – my 8-year-old has been begging to eat cereal – a “treat” in our house. She has been begging for almond milk, and I brought home almond milk and cereal and she saw the boxes and squeaked “oh my gosh – mommy, this is fabulous – there are NO GMOS!!!” Only a crunchy kid would get excited about that. 😉

  16. Oh my goodness, these are so hilarious!! The dad one made me laugh out loud because it reminds me of my husband! Especially the “you should ask my wife about that” part, haha 🙂 Well done!

  17. Fantastic videos! Only had one issue that needs to be corrected… DO NOT text your doula to let her know you are in labor, call her! 🙂

  18. OMG that is some funny sh*t

  19. LOVE THESE!! I think I identify with each of them.

    I have a few to add: prenatal yoga, fermented foods, “oh, that’s the scoby/mother in my kombucha!”, unbleached organic wool diaper covers and nursing pads, orgasmic birth, and Waldorf School.


  20. The guy’s face when he says “They got my foreskin but they’ll never get my son’s.” PRICELESS hahahaha

  21. OMGoodness… I just watched the Dad one since I’d never seen it before, and that last line has me CRACKING up! Too funny! Love these!

  22. Love the videos and I have to know why is “he” wearing an “Inca Cola” shirt?

  23. LOVE these!!! hahaha, I am laughing and nodding at the same time!:)

  24. Seriously, I can SSSOOOOOO see myself saying these things and the reactions….Priceless! LOVE IT!!

  25. OMG, sh*t crunchy dads say is the BEST! LMAO!

  26. I’m more of a crunchy mama than I realized 🙂

  27. Thanks for the fatphobia… Always love a good dose of that… smh

  28. “They got my foreskin but they’ll never get my son’s.” LOL

  29. No matter how many times I watch- I always laugh out loud. Hope the family is doing well and you are in baby heaven. 🙂

  30. Hillarious!

  31. Omg, these are hilarious! !!! How had I never seen these before!?

  32. ooooh I’m excited! I love these. my husband laughed so hard at the sh*t crunchy dads say. he always said he wasn’t crunchy, but you proved him wrong.

  33. I love your videos. My hubby and I could’ve done them. Can’t wait for part 4 🙂

  34. Well, Genevieve, I can hardly wait until tomorrow for Part 4. It’s a great distraction from my graduate papers.
