"I love surprises!"
-Gordon the Garden Gnome, this morning on ABC Kids.
Why? On what grounds do you love surprises? The bubonic plague was a surprise. Still is, for those who catch it. The explosion of the Challenger Space Shuttle was a surprise. Our dog weed in the lounge room yesterday. That was a surprise.
This idea of loving surprises seems to be a remarkably stupid attitude with which to approach life. Why are are we teaching it to little kids?
They never pray on Gordon the Garden Gnome, either.
