Pearls Before Swine (11/29/10)

I’m a sucker for a smart turn of phrase. That’s why I perked up when I read, “The crocs have learned that the ground is filled with gophers.” The ground is filled with gophers? I suppose it is, along with many other things that we tend not to think about: roots, rocks, worms, moles, dead bodies (human and animal), and air pockets just waiting to become sinkholes. Our elementary school science teachers might have taught us that the earth is 70 percent water, but that’s just the surface of the earth. What happens when we dig? Apparently, we find gophers.
