I wonder how many of you have ever either heard or said the following to a child who misbehaves, then resorts to the defense of: 'But all the other kids were doing it...' The parental response is always, 'And if all the other kids run and jump off a cliff, would you follow them?' A few days ago, I met a young man in court who would have a great response to that old line. His name was Michael Lemmings.
'OF COURSE if all the other kids run and jump off a cliff, I'd run off the cliff too! I'm one of the LEMMINGS, fer cryin' out loud!'
My pharmacist has an extremely lucky name. He's named Lamberjack. That means that the worst anyone is ever going to say about him is that he's OK.
