Platypus? What about it?

It lays eggs and then lactates. It’s covered with hair… and has webbed feet. It has a bill (which can sense electrical currents, as if the bill itself weren’t special enough). The babies have teeth; the adults do not. And whoa be unto him who takes a shot of venom from the rear claws of an angry male – morphine can’t touch the month-long aftermath.

Say whaaat? Not what you expect, a little bit of everything thrown in together.

Kind of like life. Kind of like art. Enjoy your time here – and don’t try too hard to figure it out (I’ll do my best to take my own advice).

    Technically, sweetums, it’s “woe be unto him,” but your “whoa” is funnier.
