Sheer lunacy

Today, courtesy of the wonders of the Interweb, I bring you two examples of lunacy.

Instance of lunacy #1: People are willing to take a pay cut so they can bring their dogs into work.

Hello?? It's a dog. It may be lovely, but it's a dog. If you need to take something special to you into work, try a photo, or even a special blankie.

Instance of lunacy #2: Japanese mummies who have waaaay too much time on their hands when making their kids' lunches.

Um, my mother used to occasionally slip a note in my lunchbox, and her peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were very good, but lunchbox art like this is definitely a sign of a deteriorating mental state.

(But Mum? If you wanted to make me a delicious, nutritious bento box every day and decorating it like this fulfilled you, I would probably still eat the lunch. Hell, I'd have to - I wouldn't be able to afford to buy lunch as I frantically saved for your "special home".)

I tell you, I used to think all the crazies had my number. Now I know they don't - they just know which websites I visit.

I saw a Sheila Kitzinger book in which she suggested cutting the kids' food into cute animal shapes so it'd be fun to eat it (and showed lots of examples). Yeah right.

Is this how the phrase 'Yummy Mummies' came about, I wonder?
