Parenting Lesson #1

When your kid comes home from school and tells you that a bully was pushing him around, show him this picture:



Then say, "Son, at least you're not a six-legged deer. Imagine how the other deer treat this freak."

Who wouldn't feel better after hearing that? Life is all about putting things in perspective.

Wow, your plan may backfire considering that, when full-grown, this creature will have the capacity to run up to 50% faster than its peers - thus enabling it to
(1) outrun predators and leave other slower and weaker deer to be consumed,
(2) outrun it’s inferior 4-legged counterparts to the pasture in order to consume all of ‘the good stuff’ before the others arrive, and
(3) reproduce at a more rapid pace considering it’s new levels of speed and the two pelvic regions now offered by its advantageous fortune -- conclusively materializing the theory of Darwinian evolution and placing in extinction all ‘4-leggers’ of its species. So you might want to reconsider your choice of photograph. Maybe choose a picture of Hillary Clinton?

Imagine how this deer felt when it heard the story about the deer who didn't have any feet...

Oh, the picture of Hillary that Drudge posted would be perfect!

Maybe the kid has six legs, too.

Reminds me of the six legged kid I mocked vehemently all through grade school.

The ridicule ended our junior year when he beat the crap out of me in the three legged race. Weirdo ran it twice as fast as me, go figure.

Did you mean a kid or a yearling?
