caged butterflies.


  1. From Lagniappelair

    What did I say?
    So yesterday I entertained some friends and they wanted to see the Audubon Insectarium, which contains a large room that you walk into with butterflies that are flying free and flitting all around you. Naturally there are signs like this one all over the place.

    A couple women where in there with a herd of small kids and one kid next to us read the sign aloud. Another, smaller one, asked his mom if he'd get in trouble if a butterfly landed on him. Mom replied that he would not, and that the butterflies can touch you if they want to but you just can't touch them. The kid looked a bit puzzled by the concept so I tried to explain more clearly.

    "It's kind of like a strip club," I said.

    Next thing I know, the moms are evil-eyeing me to death as they dragged their kids away.

    I mean, did I say something wrong?

  2. It took me a second because I'm not a dude. But I'd probably say something equally inappropriate.
