The original purpose of children…

Free farm labor. Here is an amusing home and gardening blog post about the desirability of having a kid around to help in the garden, and how to acquire one.

A kid is the perfect gadget to make your gardening life simple. Properly utilized you can support one on just a small portion of the food that it raises, leaving the lion’s share of the harvest for your enjoyment. Kids also enjoy working outdoors with their hands and have a primal connection with the soil. Put a kid to work in your garden and it will be grateful for being given a purpose in life.

The hard part about deploying a kid in your garden is acquiring one. Kids are literally everywhere, so you would think it would be easy just to pick one up without anyone missing it. Such is not the case…

The author (WeirdDave), does go into how to make your own kid, which seems to require that you first obtain a female of the species. That is apparently the rate limiting step in a long term project. It might be more economical to rent or lease a few kids, and when they are about twelve years old, get a new group. That way you could avoid all the drama, angst, and decreased productivity of the teen years.

Wile E. Coyote has finally had enough of the injury, trauma, and humiliation inflicted upon him by Acme products—products that never seem to work as intended and that always, in the end, turn against the person (or, his case, animal) using them. So he has lawyered up and taken his case to court.

Originally published in The New Yorker, Coyote v. Acme presents the opening statements of an imaginary lawsuit by Coyote against Acme for his personal injuries caused by the faulty devices, citing 85 occasions in which they “did cause him bodily injury due to defects in manufacture or improper cautionary labeling.”
