Silly Serendipity

Watching Sesame Street with my daughter just now, I saw a segment where a hard-boiled private detective was trying to discover the letter of the day.  As he searched his office he found…a lizard eating an ice cream cone.  At the same time, my daughter had laid out a dinosaur-themed coloring book for the two of us to color in as we watched.  She opened it up to a random page in the middle, which happened to be a picture of…a lizard eating an ice cream cone. 

Now, I imagine that the odds of seeing a single lizard eating an ice cream cone on any given day are probably pretty low, but the odds of seeing two unrelated lizards eating ice cream cones–at the exact same time–are most likely even worse than that.  Maybe even as low as the odds of Michael Bay directing a movie without car chases and/or explosions, Joe Biden going a week without saying something remarkably inane, or Paris Hilton ever exhibiting a quiet, dignified nobility.

And yet, it happened.  Check this off of your list of signs of the times, folks.
