Flamingoes never seemed to me like a particularly smart animal. (I have no basis for this, just a hunch.) And is it common anywhere to eat them? It's only in typing all this that realize how little I know about flamingoes; I do know, however, that no one really knows why they stand on one leg. Okay, flamingo rant over.
Last week I found myself walking on the street behind an attractive woman. From this vantage point I had the displeasure of observing the revolting, lecherous behavior of at least half the men who walked by -- extended stares, creepy grins, and one guy who ostentatiously licked his lips. This was in the course of a single city block. I'd always thought I wanted a bunch of daughters -- as a kindergarten teacher I got to witness how dumb most little boys can be -- but now I doubt whether I want to procreate at all.
