^^^LOL! Good one.
Goes to show you how "degenerate" the new generation is.
Do they even teaches kids where their food comes from in schools anymore???
I know in my DD's class some classmates think meat came from only as far as the supermarket & money from the ATM... yikes! Not good, not good at all for the "super spoiled" generation.
