Sometimes these relationships are referred to as "Jack Sprat" from the popular childeren's nursery rhyme.
Jack Sprat could eat no fat.
His wife could eat no lean.
And so between them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean
Double Chin Donna pulled a corndog on Billy, i get you couldn't see nothing but his skinny legs and feet.
"Yea sure im down ill roll up a corndog."
Friend: Kids want to learn, are curious. Parents are stupid
Me: yeah, because the guy that is in charge of the coffee can't be the same one in charge of the horn. if we talk to them like people instead of like corndogs, maybe they'd be smarter
Me: and maybe if instead of telling them everything we let them just watch, they wouldn't think we're ask as dumb as corndogs
Friend: Corndogs :D
Me: fookin corndogs, dumbest meat on the planet.
