it's the berries

what do they have to do with straw? they're pretty red berries. i don't see anythin' havin' to do with straw in or around these berries.

at least these are what they're called: blueberries.

but blackberries are purple. raspberries have nothin' to do with rasps, which are hand tools to kinda sand stuff on. are elderberries old? and what 'bout huckleberries? what on earth is a huckle and who decided to name a berry after it. bean language is just plain weird. if we poodins were in charge things would make more sense. i guarantee it.

Hmmm. Edsel, this would make another good tag game. Bean words that don't make sense.

What's a boysenberry? Is a crab apple really crabby?

How about toilet? To me, this means little toy. Mom says no, that's not what it means.

Well, why doesn't it? I can play on it, can't I?

There's no understanding humans, Edsel, just face it! BTW, my humans had raspberries with clotted cream tonight and I got to lick out the cream pot! So much for the diet!

Those berries look delicious! Your insight into the homo sapien language is very thought-provoking!

Along the lines of William and SS&S, I add: driveway, parkway, and eggplant.

yes William, i agree, "toilet" is just stupid. S S & S - "pineapple"- what's up with that? and Zeus - "eggplant" is another perfect example. i've heard that english is the most difficult 2nd language to learn and DO YOU SEE WHY YOU DUMB BEANS? sigh, if only WE were in charge....

How come when we're gettin' into sumthin' we're not supposed to our people say our names in that loud, annoying voice? Sometimes they say it a coupla times, gettin' louder each time! Makes no sense!
