    This could come in handy in a daycare centre.

    We’d often have up to half a dozen bottle lambs at a time on my parents’ farm when I was young. After years of struggling to hold 4 or 5 bottles at once, while fending off another hungry lamb or two, we did finally build something like this.

    I suggest the caption: “Your Congress at work.”
