There's an awful lot of fish and birds in that list. Do you handle worms a lot?

I love the list. I note that "rabbit" is at the end -- did something happen recently?

All those years, all those pets, and you've never ever been bitten by a flea? (You've already included "punch and suck" in "bite".)

You have fingers left after all that? I think I would take to wearing gloves even in hot weather...

I can believe everything, except the cow. How in heaven's name did you get a cow to bite you?

I echo Pica... A towhee???? What, were you hiding under the leaves?

How ever did you THINK UP making this list!?

Thanks for the laugh... I really needed it this week...
