One Potato Review

Birds on a wire: “Tell Peter it’s time to fly home for dinner,” says a mother pigeon to a cardinal holding a bat, who naturally passes along the message as “Hit pop flies and homers.” We hear what we want to hear: “Prop planes are for fliers.” “Put your wet socks in the dryer.” “Rock stars are admired.” “Crocodiles are bad liars.” Until, before you know it, someone is hollering about a giant monster lobster named Homer.  A heads-up in our Twitter age. And scenic and hilarious to boot.
