    Happy 61st birthday, Tentoes!

    Also, I didn’t make this connection until just barely, but today is my dad’s birthday, too.

    Apparently Rat did know what he meant since his word balloon spelled it “berth”.

    Where would Rat find a mate insane enough to bear his child? Amityville? White House? US Capitol?

    Legally, you have a spelling to argue with. Realistically, you will be punned if you pun too much!

    Too bad you don’t get paid while you’re on leave.

    If the manager had his way, Rat wouldn’t ever reproduce!

    “Rat, the odds of any female getting within 100 yards of you for the purpose of initiating a birth are statistically less than zero. Shut up and go home. You’re fired.”

    Our dog will take our next paternity leave. I’m 76, she’s passed as well as our dog.

    Rat, legally you don’t. But thank you for playing our game, and do try again another time.

    The folks around me seem to be able to distinguish, by pronunciation alone, words like ‘hem’ and ‘him’ which is magic to me!
