  1. I must say this illustration suddenly brought back memories of something I hadn’t thought about in years.

    My first experience as a kid of being ostracized for being an irritating non-conformist.

    I think it was the summer before I entered Grade 2 or 3.

    I remember I was kicked out of a kids’ playhouse in some guy’s backyard because I wouldn’t stop singing the song Yellow Submarine (I think we were supposed to imagine the playhouse was a submarine).

    Although the kid who owned the playhouse might not have liked my own particular take on the lyrics,

    “We all live in a yellow submarine,
    we eat our pork and beans in a yellow submarine.”

    1. Especially if he was Hebrew.
      Uncle Ernie refuses to eat pork
      sausages now that he’s become
      a born again Ashkenazi ✡️ Yet
      he’ll stick one down his sequined
      g-string when performing his
      drag extravaganza, ‘Cumelita,
      Queen of the Kosher Bagel’.
