"Animals also have some special dietary needs," Josh agreed, "You can't feed your goldfish chicken bones."
"The bone is probably bigger than the fish anyway!" Rosh joked, "And you can't get your dog to eat grass clippings".
“How black is too black, Pa?” Hosh asked, “How would I know if it is dirty enough to change?”
“Oil turns black pretty quickly,” Rosh smiled, “but that doesn’t affect its quality. Rub a little between your thumb and index finger. If it leaves a dirty smudge, it probably needs to be changed.”
"Really?" Josh was discovering a whole new world, "Do birds have no dicks at all?"
"Some birds have them," answered Rosh, "and they use them too. Males of ostriches, cassowaries, kiwi, geese, and some species of swans and ducks, do not use cloaca for reproduction. They have a phallus."
"This is also the reason why people drink more in noisy pubs and discoes and then make stupid decisions there. Because their brain gets too overloaded. It simply can't think properly in all that din."
"And when you drink there, it gets even worse. The dumbest chick starts looking like Aphrodite."
"But I don't understand, Pa," Josh concluded. "Looks to me like the hermit justified everything that happened, as being the right thing, after it had already happened."
"But hindsight is not really wisdom."
