The scene: A family dinner at the table with Mommy, Daddy, Mister Man, and Little Miss.
Mister Man: Mommy, do you know where ham comes from (as he shovels a forkful of ham into his mouth)?
Me: Yes, pigs!
Mister Man: You’re right.
Me: Do you know where chicken comes from?
Mister Man: quizzical look
Me: Where do you think?
Mister Man: I have no idea.
Mister Man: I said, I don’t know.
Me: I mean chicken comes from chickens.
Mister Man: No, it doesn’t.
Me: Umm, I think it does.
Mister Man: Nuh-uh.
Me: Then where does it come from?
Mister Man: From factories!
Me: Well, ok, but it’s still really from chickens.
Mister Man: No, it isn’t.
Me: Then where is it from?
Mister Man: From farms!
Me: Right, from the chickens that are living on the farms.
Mister Man: Are you sure?
Yes, kiddo, I’m pretty sure. Pigs and ham are easy, but chickens … that’s the tough one!
