Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance — Part III: Handle With Care


Elf: Brad explained it to me. Kreelies don't grow up to be smart unless they're raised by smart Kreely parents.
Schlock: What, they can't learn stuff when they're old?
Elf: Sort of. He said that unless they get this special infection during their second growth spurt, they'll never get smarter than, say, a really smart dog.
Schlock: Dogs are what puppies turn into if you don't eat 'em before they go all stringy.
Schlock: I'm just saying. . . you give me a choice between a Kreely and a dog, I'll eat the Kreely every time.
