Peter Rabbit had sort of that kind of thing too... Sally: The other people's name was MacGregor. 18,19,20,21,22,23. Hmmm.

In this report, I plan to discuss the sociallogical Implications of family pressures so great as to drive an otherwise moral Rabbit to acts of thievery, which he consciously knew where against the Law. I also hope to explore the personality of Mister MacGregor, in his Conflicting role of farmer and humanitarian. Peter Rabbit is established From the start as a benevolent hero, and it is only with the increase of Social pressure that the seams in his moral fabric...

Such as lettuce, and carrots and onions, and mushrooms How can they conspire to make (continues to list Vegetables (oops.)
