Yesterday Miss Pink was singing in the car, to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”:
The cows give us milk, the cows give us milk
Hi ho the derry-o, the cows give us milk
She went on to sing about chickens giving us eggs, then a thought came to her: “Mom, what do pigs give us?”
I said, “Bacon.” Then immediately wondered if I would have to explain exactly how that happens. It’s not like the pig just donates the bacon and goes on its merry way.
She then said without skipping a beat, “Oh! Then I guess I need to sing the cows give us beef, too.”
She ate her chopped steak with gravy at dinner without any complaints.
