    No idea. Apparently it was found in the display case with no further explanation, it wasn't a special order or anything.

    Acey let's see what the daylight brings

    Here’s one my dad told me as a kid. I don’t remember the original super well ‘cause I was baby, but I will try to reproduce it as faithfully as possible.

    There was one a little kingdom in a forest, populated by a race of little creatures called Trids. They lived peacefully for a long time, never bothering anyone and never being bothered, until one day a huge, ferocious troll attacked the kingdom.

    The strange thing was, the troll did very little damage to the Trids themselves. He just kicked them, and not hard enough to do a whole lot of harm. Still, it was painful, and the Trids eventually forced the troll out through sheer numbers.

    But he came back the next day, and did the same thing. And the next day. And the day after that. Eventually, the king ventured outside the kingdom, searching for someone who might be able to help his people.

    The king was in luck! A rabbi, a caring and virtuous man, happened to cross paths with him.

    “Sir,” the king pleaded, “my people need your help! A troll keeps invading our kingdom and kicking us!”

    The rabbi nodded. “I will see what I can do,” he said, and followed the king deep into the forest, into the Trid kingdom.

    As it happened, the troll had returned during the king’s short absence. The rabbi frowned, and walked up to the troll, who wasn’t much taller than him.

    “Stop kicking these innocent creatures!” the rabbi commanded.

    “Never!” shouted the troll. “Be gone!”

    “Oh yeah?” the rabbi replied. “What are you gonna do, kick me?”

    At this, the troll laughed.

    “Silly rabbi, kicks are for Trids!”

    there's a kids' food company (US? North America?) called Trix; their mascot is an anthropomorphized rabbit, and their.... tagline? motto thing? is "silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!" Above pun flips the initial phonemes.

    Apologies for not explaining myself! I didn’t really realize Trix was an American thing, so I kind of assumed it was one of those things that was well-known the world over, but I should really know better than to assume that. Loq is correct, it’s a play on the slogan for Trix.

    today's Drawfee had a great one, all credit to Nathan:

    Michaelangelo would show people his sketches, and they'd be like "Whoa, you're going to sculpt all that in 3d?" And he'd say "No, it's just going to be up against a flat surface." And they'd go
    "Oh, that's a relief!"

    i said, "did you mean a niche audience?"

    Y'know, folks.. we all have our brain problems, amirite? I'm counting myself in that. Most of us probably came here because we're different, we don't fit, we don't act right, we're a bit crazy.

    Folks like us, we have it rough. Nobody appreciates our struggles. People don't realise how much effort we put into the smallest tasks. Sometimes we summon up heroic amounts of willpower just to make a single cup of tea, and people just brush it off like it's nothing. Like it's a non-NT tea.

    i'm playing a goblin, who in Pathfinder 2e are a core race and get a charisma boost! i decided he'd be a real rough-and-tumble rowdy boy, but one who cares a lot about fair play and doing what's right and sticking by your friends. and chopping down giant monsters with a 7 foot long sword.

    also, his name is Gronald.
