Sheldon: In any ecosystem, you’ll find a delicate balance between predator and prey.
Some well-known predators include Panthera leo,
and star of the 1987 film Predator, Predator.
Now, examples of prey include Oryctolagus cuniculus,
Gallus gallus domesticus,
and weighing in at 58 pounds soaking wet, diminutive Homo novus
—curiously, a close relative of Gallus gallus domesticus.
Meemaw: I bowled a new high score last night.
Sheldon’s dad: Nice.
Meemaw: I got two turkeys.
Missy: What’s a turkey?
Meemaw: It’s three strikes in a row.
Missy: Why do they call it a turkey?
Meemaw: Well, when they first invented bowling, they used to just throw frozen turkeys at the pins. Eventually, they switched to balls to cut down on the smell.
Sheldon’s dad: Why you lying to her?
Meemaw: I find it keeps my mind sharp.

Sheldon: Existing in a world of predators isn’t easy, but we prey have developed several natural defenses to help us survive—there’s playing dead, warning calls, camouflage…and, last but certainly not least, good old-fashioned running away. A little screaming never hurts either.
