"Hey, these new animal crackers are unbelievable," I said. "What are they called?"

"Snackimals," Gloria said. "So they taste good?"

"Forget the taste," I said. "Have you seen the carvings?"


"Look at this," I said, holding up a hippopotamus for her perusal. "That's remarkable work. It might be Mayan."

"Good grief," she said.

"There was a Mayan animal cracker exhibit at the Smithsonian for almost three decades in the early 1900's," I said. "But it was finally determined that pre-Columbian lapidary tools couldn't be used with that degree of precision. I suspect that these are just clever fakes."

"I suspect that you are very odd," she said.
