All parents get strange questions from their kids, but Sunday I got the craziest one yet in my 8 years of parenthood.
"Dad, why don't animals have buttcracks? They have holes but no cracks."
The query came from my six yer old son while we were sitting in a hunting blind watching a young doe. Yes, she happened to lighten her load while we were spying on her, which is what provoked the question.
Summoning all of my worldly wisdom, I said, "Humans have complex brains, opposable thumbs, and butt cracks. That's what makes us special."
