It's just a harmless little free-range joke, pecking and scratching in the femme yard. Indeed, it's interesting to note what happens when the hens leave the room -- the place turns into a pigsty! ;^) I often agree, Bobinwales, that splitting the human race for reproduction purposes into two genders...

It's hilarious, and features, among other delights, a 4-piece band called "The Craze". Now,...
Whole language, phonics, "sound it out" -- "Oh, no, Phil, no!", I gamely shout, "With all these rules play fast and loose! For sure success, read Dr. Seuss." Now Phil, repeat after me: One Fish. Two Fish. Red Fish. Blue Fish . . . (That was fun. I started going for a second stanza, but realized I re...
