Food Chain

At dinner the other night, The Rooster discussed her day at pre-school.

She led us through a list of proposed names for class pet hermit crab and we weighed the merits of each proposal.

"Joseph suggested Hermie," she told us.

[Oh, the original!]

The Mayor rolled his eyes and wryly contributed his own idea.

"Why don't you just call the hermit crab Bait?"

[!!!!]

It's usually his sister's role to be the macabre one.

Growing up, our kids named the cow 'meat' and the pig 'bacon' (which they eventually became)

That's hysterical! We used to have a cow named Tbone... Of course, we had two fish named Pete and Repeat; we're just not that original.
