On the way home from fetching cat food, I was listening to NPR. They were talking about the flooding on the Mississippi, and how it's difficult to get cooperation because it passes through so many different jurisdictions. The commentator said, "It's like a child with 800 parrots, but he's an orphan."
"Yeesh", I thought. "If my son had 800 parrots, I'd leave home, too."
I was a good ten miles farther along before I realized he'd said 800 *parents*.
