Children and Animals

It’s been suggested that a well-placed dose of adorable goes a long way in helping to sell a product.  Take, for example, Oscar Mayer hot dogs.  Get a kid with a few missing teeth to smile and exclaim that they wish they were a weiner and it’s advertising gold.  Get a guy in a grubby sweatshirt with a few tattoos and it’s a public service announcement.  Statistically, children and animals are basically irresistible to the average consumer.

However, I think I’ve found the exception to that rule.

At first glance, he may seem like your run-of-the-mill cutie pie.  He has great taste in clothes, is polite to the neighbors, and knows when to flash that winning smile.  For all intents and purposes, he is a perfect example of the innocence of childhood.  Now, fast forward 15 years.

I knew there was something fishy about that kid.  He just wore that adorable costume to throw you off while he was casing your home.  He’ll wait patiently until you drive away in your Subaru Legacy and  :::bam:::  kick in your back door.  I’d keep an eye on that one if I were you.  Next thing you know, he’ll be showing up to your dinner parties and catching you off guard with his winning charm (and door-kicking-in abilities).
