It’s no wonder

At breakfast, we have opened a new tub of spreadable butter.  It coils on top, clearly from the way it was poured into the container by the machine at the factory.  A conversation ensues about what the butter resembles (you can guess what the first suggestion was, of course).

B — That would be gross to eat, if it were poop instead of butter!

Mom — You know, dung beetles eat animal poop and use it to build their homes.

B — Eeew!  Gross!  They eat poop?!

R — So that’s why they’re called dumb beetles…
