a hedgehog isn't a bug

Sure, Vanity Fair beat us 18-2, but they apparently don't copy edit their web content (see "throw," last paragraph), so I think I would counter that we're still superior.

Nick Flynn's The Ticking Is the Bomb is superior to most books. If you haven't read it yet, I'm wondering what you're waiting for.

(kindergarten)

Russian boy, naming a bug: SONIC!

Me: What's a "sonic"?

Mexican boy: SONIC! In the game, you know?

Me: Oh Sonic, the hedgehog?

Russian boy, face lighting up: HEDGEHOG!

Me: But a hedgehog isn't a bug! It's too big to be a bug!

Israeli boy: One time I saw this bug, it was like a raccoon.

Russian girl: A frog.
