I once worked with a woman who, in her late 30s, still didn't eat birthday cake because she got sick after eating it once -- on her 5th birthday.

If you pull up a garment with a too-short rise, you're likely to make it too tight/binding in the crotch, which is something I imagine most of us would rather avoid. :-)

A few years back we bought a Thunder Shirt for Rin. As soon as we put it on, she started dragging her hindquarters behind her as if they were paralyzed. Fortunately Thunder Shirts are returnable.

Doodle's vocalizations are tiny, high-pitched, chirpy, and short. This has gotten even cuter since he has grown so big (est. 11 pounds at 8 months).

Unfortunately, even when it's done well, people often mistake ridicule of racists with ridicule of the targets of racism -- as with All in the Family and Blazing Saddles.
