Yes it is. "Dad's" can also be a contraction. Dad is feeding his baby = Dad's feeding his baby.

Not it isn't, because the actual sentence is:

"Dad's feeding their babies".

We don't say:

"Dad is feeding their babies" (except in the cotext of a single dad a multiple babies, which this clearly isn't).

Or even:

"Dads is feeding their babies".

So the only valid contraction would be:

"Dads're feeding their babies"

It doesn't say that, so it's just plain wrong.

Well you started it...

Super pedant. Even if it WERE trying to agree....(subjunctive case)

LowNSlow, Your solution to that sentence's totally correct. But you have to admit that there's been some good humour value in the last few posters' comments!

Trossie.....

.....it's been like arguing with my very bright 15 yr old Grandaughter who can split a hair into so many strands it ain't true. But I don't lose every time!
She has just finished her first GCE Eng Lit exam this morning.

Not-so-subtle Photoshopped text though, which is in much sharper focus than the rest of the label.

The package in question reads "kipper filets" or such. I think my wife (who hates kippered herring, but I still love her) would rather take a chance on a boiled piss flap.

The placing of the number "5" by W H Smith staff this morning was a bit unfortunate for the author.

I'm opening a gym today that teaches people power walking and door knocking.
I'm calling it, 'Jehovah's Fitness'.

Elizabeth Taylor walks into her plastic surgeon's office one day and says to him, "I'm getting married soon to my aerobics instructor. Over the years I have had my boobs done, my butt done and my face done. Now I would like to have down below done. So her doctor says, "sure, that's no problem".
Elizabeth adds: "but there's just one thing I ask of you, and that is to keep this a secret from everyone. I am tired of the press and the public knowing about every little thing I have done."
So her doctor says, "That's no problem. Consider it done."
The next week comes around and Elizabeth is waking up from her surgery. To her shock she sees three bunches of flowers with cards sitting on the table next to her. Her doctor comes in and she starts yelling because she assumes that her secret is out.
Her doctor calms her down and said. "You misunderstand. The first set of flowers is from me. I would just like to thank you for all the work you have given me throughout the years. The second bunch of flowers is from the nurses who wish you a good recovery. And the third bunch of flowers is from Uncle Jim down the hall who would like to thank you for his new set of ears."
