    Any overweight platypus can forget about lap band surgery.

    So where does a platypus store its food to be digested? Congrats for the thirteenth time, Mr. and Mrs. Schwandt.

    What of the Redskin scores? Did the Democrats and Republicans predict them?

    I think they should keep trying until they have a girl.

    About 1/4 of fish don’t have stomachs. Adult platypuses, platypi or platypodes (take your pick) don’t have teeth, baby ones do.Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Shwandt for contributing more than your share to over population of the planet.

    Our first one was so underfoot all the time, I don’t know how we had time for our second.

    Are they angling for a television show?

    When I read about the Schwandts on both before and after the birth, I never expected them to appear in Ripley’s Believe it or Not. They had liked the idea of having a baby girl. Sometime after the birth of their thirteenth son, it was reported that it was “medically impossible” for them to have a girl. For each pregnancy, they chose to be surprised by the baby; no seeking to find out before his birth whether Kateri was carrying a girl or a boy.

    It’s always nice to see the vitriol flow.Myself, I looked up the Salary range for his Profession.$30,391 – $83,438.If he’s anywhere from the Middle to the Top of that range he can afford the kids with careful Budgeting..(He Does Commercial Properties, so he’s unlikely to be in the bottom of the range).AW, Darn. He might actually NOT be such a Burden..
