Sender-Inner Leila J. says: “Our office hamster, Peaches, is a bit of a trollop, and somehow managed to become impregnated and birth a litter of 11 without us noticing she was “in the family way.” It’s a happy-ending story, though, as she didn’t eat any of them and instead instructed them all in the worldly delights of noshing on fresh pattypan squash and strawberries. (related story: anyone want a hamster?)”

Save me Mr. Gershwin!
