I see this funny picture over at Dr. Dino’s blog introducing Shlomo, “Rudolph’s first cousin on his mother’s side.”
Planning to make it a part of a mixed holiday e-card to send to our friends, I forward it to Mrs. WhiteCoat.
Later in the day she comes up to me out of the blue and says:
“That was amazing!”
Having no idea what she’s talking about, I reply “I know. You told me that last night, too.”
“Noooooo, hotshot. The picture you sent me. What are the chances of that happening as a naturally occurring phenomenon?”
“You mean the deer?”
“Yeah. What are the chances its horns would form that way?”
“Ummmm … Honey … have you ever heard of Adobe Photoshop?”
“You mean you don’t think that the horns formed that way naturally?”
“A two-legged deer with the Star of David on his head. Sure. He probably ‘bleats’ in Yiddish, too. In fact, I heard that picture was taken in the woods right near this other naturally occurring phenomenon ….”
Thanks, Dino. Now Mrs. WhiteCoat isn’t talking to me.
