I'll bet one‐fifth of American kids don't know what animal their hamburgers come from. They probably don't even know where their milk comes from. What are they teaching our kids nowadays?

Paul asked, "Honey, where does pork come from?" She said, "Pigs." He asked, "Where does lamb come from?" She said, "Sheep." He asked, "Where does money for your books and clothes come from?" She said, "I'm not sure. I think it grows on trees." 2.9
