The Darwin Lite Awards

Let's hope she falls for it again and gives us 2 cookies each :)
Our famous buddy Bertie has asked us to share some examples of how our peeps are not as far along the evolutionary scale as they may think and our Mom is a prime example. Our Mom has a terrible time with numbers - especially phone numbers. Now of coarse Dad sets up Mom's phone for her so she can call someone just by name but on the few occasions she has had to enter the phone number to call someone .....well lets just say the people in New York, San Francisco and Atlanta were NOT the ones she was meant to be calling.  

Equally Mom has a habit of mis-reading things. Like the other day while driving down the road she asked Dad why the Bank was offering Free Chicken - he of coarse totally cracked up and said the sign said Free Checking!   Or reading Bearded Chicken on a menu instead of breaded - gawwooof! Mom says she could write a book about the things she has mis read over the years. Luckily for her we would NEVER take advantage of her lack of Darwin Evolution :)

PS - Mom called Dad last night to check when he would be home so she could have dinner ready - he said it would be around 6.00pm so Mom turned the oven on at 5.00 - there was just one problem - she forgot to put the food in - we could of told her we couldn't smell anything cooking but it was much more fun watching her reaction when she went to get dinner out - bbbbaaaawwwaaaahhhhh


  1. Mum does that thingy with the oven regularly. Turns the oven on, wanders off, gets distracted and forgets to go back and put the foodables in. Or, she puts the foodables in, wonders off, gets distracted and only remembers at the burning smell!

  7. This is sooo funny! Too cute.

    Our brains sure can play funny tricks on us.

  8. Love it! Forgetting to put dinner in…not long ago I left a baked potato in the oven to keep warm when I pulled out a casserole. It's so hot I rarely use the oven nowadays, and next time I preheated the broiler…let's just say you guys would have evacuated the kitchen pronto. I love the illustration too btw; Temple Grandin says we've had dogs so long that the relationship affected human evolution.

  9. OMD OMD we would LOVE that BANK.... Free CHICKEN.... OH YESSS....
    Those are funny thingys.... Peeps are just NUTTY aren't they.... butt we love them anyway... RIGHT????
