Winnie the Pooh, silly old bear.

"Rabbit is clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."
"And he has Brain."
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit has Brain."
There was a long silence.
"I suppose," said Pooh, "that that's why he never understands anything."

Reading Winnie the Pooh as an adult is quite different than having it read to you as a child. I envy that bear all stuffed with fluff.

"Pooh!" he whispered. "Yes, Piglet?" 
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

The Salton Sea

"What is the Salton Sea exactly? I mean how did it come to be?"
"A mistake."
