She loves tomatoes

More than anything there is

Even more than milkshakes

Here’s Eloise the box turtle snacking on a tomato, c/o Haley L.

    Miss Piggy once said:
    You should never eat something
    Bigger than your head

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

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

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

    Didn’t Eloise (the one who lived at the Plaza) have a pet turtle?

  18. Eloise looks pretty happy to have found a yummy snack and a hooman who loves her that much.

  19. Yet no greater love
    Exists than ‘twixt a tortoise
    And her strawberry
