We took the kids to the zoo when they were young and my oldest, then about three, asked me if the Eland was tasty. I thought the lady next to us was going to have a seizure.

But at least they're not like the Japanese kids at the aquarium I visited in Tokyo, who went to each tank and pointed saying "Oishi! Oishi!"

(Delicious).

Too true!

Half a year spent fasting - the real reason there are no Greek cowboys.

It is really only during lent that I can't shake those words from the Book of Jim Gaffigan: fun to pet, better to chew.

Oscar Wilde was right: I can resist all things except temptation.

Thanks for the laugh!
