I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

admiring feelings of a gentle lady
I am soliciting suggestions for a neologism to describe that poetry that comes of a bad translation on the label from an Asian consumer product. Example, my very favorite confection in the worl is Muscat Gummy, brought to World Market by Kasugai, and described thus, "Its translucent color so alluring and taste and aroma so gentle and mellow offer admiring feelings of a graceful lady."
