Now really. Tone-deaf much? Would you trust your kids to something called "Hansel & Gretel Day Care"? Should you worry if they dole out extra snacks to fatten them up? Where do you suppose they do the baking? And just what is that little playhouse out back made of? And why are all those birds pecking at that line of breadcrumbs?

I read your comments to me on Rurality's blog about the Stellers Jays and so I thought I would stop by. This was a funny post and made me laugh out loud.

Welcome, and glad you laughed too. Sometimes I wonder if people see the same things I do.

There are local daycare/preschools with names like "Love Child Daycare" (Joe asked, "Is that a requirement?" and I still don't know; do they check the records for "illegitimacy"?) and "Color Me Children," which evokes piratical face-painting. It's probably possible to make a long list of such odd names.
