“Euphemism”

Sketch for the Day-

eu·phe·mism [yoo-fuh-miz-uhm] 
noun
1. the substitution of a mild, indirect, or vague expression for one thought to be offensive, harsh, or blunt.
2.the expression so substituted: “To pass away” is a euphemism for “to die.”

EX. Baby butterflies are born from a caterpillar blowing bubbles from a hooka…..

I decided to add to the list of Euphemisms for baby making- the stork, the cabbage patch, the birds and the bees, etc.  Add a fascination with the caterpillar from “Alice in Wonderland” and you have this sketch.  The caterpillar was the most magical character to me and the one that really made me realize Alice had really stepped through the looking glass.
