Even more than milkshakes

  8. Eating something bigger than your head has got to be a rule of cute too.

  10. That’s not quite correct.
    The real quote is: Never eat
    More than you can lift.

  11. One too many syllables at the end, but what a cute photo

  14. It was B. Kliban– one of his cartoon collections was “Never eat anything bigger than your head”
