Jose stood there incredulous. The unicorns could pass, as all other animals other than the armadillo and man could. It was invisible, but impenetrable. Jose hung his head, knowing the trek back to his small camp, back to his wife and bambinos would be a sad, long one.

Thoughts of the state of the country, the devastation, the over population, the political upheaval, and the squalor and ruin that had taken over in the last few years dominated his mind. His family’s hopes for escape from hell dashed in that one moment.
Tears ran down his face as he walked toward her, but she had to know.

thanks, harry. I thought you were spouting off disparagements against my world-famous armadillo sausage without even trying it first.

Knowing that your story was meant as humor brings it into a hole new armadillo den and explains your use of hyperbole in setting this poor critter so far from its habitat while engaged in an act it would never consider.

I never said my little blurb was meant to be humor. I think it makes a point. The bit about the armadillo was both humorous and a plot point.

Okay, I get that you use armadillos as humorous plot points, but shouldn't you have used an animal that might actually want to live in Canada?

Besides, if the Canadians ever tried my sausage, they would be importing the little critters.

The armadillo is there to confuse. It looks as if it's done the job.

Thanks harry, now I get it. You're saying that your ability to confuse the reader requires him to look inward in order to discover how easily he can be misled by too little information.
Why else would Canadians want to dissuade these tasty critters from a mass migration.

It's pure genius. You so clever. Sausages for everyone.
