The Saturday Picture Show, April 6, 2019

Anthropomorphism - the assigning of human characteristics to inaminate objects - is never more popular than when she see things like this purse, with the zipper eyes and mouth.

Down in New Orleans, they would take yesterday's baguette and stuff it with some of yesterday's shrimp and some lettuce and tomato and hand it out to those in need of a meal. A kind gesture, even though calling the sandwich a "Po' Boy" seems a bit old-fashioned.
The pollinators are coming back, so let them do their thing!
