Answer: Little Amoeba

Child A, the one on the arm of the chair is Amoeba’s younger brother.

Child B, the one seated in the chair is the eldest in the family, is Amoeba.

Child C, seated on the floor, is Amoeba’s little sister and the youngest in the family.

Amoeba’s brother was well-known for making his own rules.  If you want to hear his story go see his widow, Tilden; or his daughter, Amanda.

Amoeba you know and love.  He was the kid who aimed to please and hated to be in trouble.  He’s still a perfectionist and likes all his Ts crossed and his Is dotted so everyone is on the same page.

Amoeba’s little sister is a caring and dedicated nurse.  She loves laughter and fun.

How’s My Driving?
[Phone number]
We Reward Safe Driving

A wonderful example of corporate responsibility in these tough times. Right?


Well, maybe.

Did I mention what kind of truck this was?

It was an armored car.

So of course this company rewards safe driving. The drivers surely belong to the Teamsters, and their union isn’t about to let its members work for free.
