  3. My mother always told me that, to her, all cats were girls and all dogs were boys. Her brain just made it that way for her. She calls my female dog “him” and my male cat “her” every single time she mentions them.

    IRT Sai Baba: For all his purported knowledge of JC and his comparisons of himself to JC, he chose (he said he would choose when he would die) to die on Easter Sunday instead of on Good Friday? He should have known better! Plus, if he’s the new JC, as he sometimes claimed, the schedule requires that he should have been back yesterday. Anyone seen him?
