Shocking innocence

Tonight at dinner we were reminiscing about how Hamslice used to eat squid when he was two years old. We showed him how he would have the tentacles from the squid hanging out of his mouth and he would laugh and chomp it down.

Hamslice's comment back was, "Yeah, and then I had sperm breath."

To which Hambone and I did our best to keep a neutral expression, and we asked simply "How so?"

And he very eloquently described how Sperm whales eat squid, therefore if you eat squid you will have the same breath as a Sperm whale. And while we were so relieved to hear this explanation, we know it's going to come up in conversation among adults for years to come.
