Every so often I do some slumming to see what CG and Sam are up to. When I do, I cannot help but think of a poem called, The Duel, by Eugene Field. Here are the most relevant stanzas:

The gingham dog went "Bow-wow-wow!"
And the calico cat replied "Mee-ow!"
The air was littered, an hour or so,
With bits of gingham and calico
...
Next morning, where the two had sat
They found no trace of dog or cat;
And some folks think unto this day
That burglars stole that pair away!
But the truth about that cat and pup
Is this: they ate each other up!


Kind of like Kissinger's quote about the Iraq-Iran war, “too bad they can’t both lose.”  ::)
