Another hilarious Graham Banks contest title.
For those oddballs like me who like to watch "funny cats" videos, the cucumber on the floor to scare the cat is a common theme,
Graham loves animals, so I guess that is the genesis of this contest title
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
