Why I Don’t Have Children
Watched “March of the Penguins” tonight. I wonder if I’m the only one who was surprised that none of the daddy ‘guins were shown eating their offspring.
I mean, c’mon, some of them must at least consider it.
You can’t tell me that enduring four months without eating wouldn’t have some of the poppa ‘guins eying up their newly hatched chick and thinkin’ “I feel like chicken tonight!”
Think about it – you work hard skillfully cradling an egg between your feet and blubber gut through all manner of freezing foul weather and you deserve some kinda reward for your labour – a nice snack.
Yeah…if I happened to be a species other than human it would be highly likely that I’d eat my young.
