Squeaky Clean Peaceable Kingdom
Cleanliness is next to godliness, it is said. This wasn't a spiritual mission, just a disinfecting one. A preschooler licked and sucked the pinkish bear's feet. I don't want to contemplate the reasons for this action. I just want to send the whole jungle through the carwash.
Now that the plastic animals are disinfected, please join me in singing, "The pink bear went through the dishwasher, the pink bear went through the dishwasher, the pink bear went through the dishwasher to see what she could see.
Quaker preacher Edward Hicks painted over a hundred versions of "The Peaceable Kingdom." 1820 and his death. The theme for the paintings was Isaiah chapter eleven. If you squint just right, you can see the box of Cascade in about thirty-three versions.
