A friend of mine is a lawyer in the U.S. She is funny. I'll call her "Emily'. That is not her real name. (Yeah, it's totally her real name.) She sent me this email this morning:
I saw a car with the license plate WOLFCUB. I nearly pointed it out to my Dad, who was with me, then saw the " = " sticker next to it and decided it was a thing. I texted my friend Joey:
Emily: "What's a wolfcub?"
Joey: "Dunno. White Fang?"
At this point, I tell him where I saw it.
Joey: "Oh God. It's 20-35 year old guys, very hairy, lots of muscles - as opposed to bears, cubs and otters."
Emily: "I know you didn't just internet that."
Joey: "I knew. Was just hoping you meant something innocent and cuddly."
Ever since, I've had otters and polar bear cubs on the brain. Which I should. I keep reading news and thinking that I'd be happier if only I could remove my brain through an eye socket.
