Jaques Prevert has some very haunting poems and was one of the fathers of the French absurdity movement. I am disappointed that certain people chose to deface this post with inappropriate and irrelevant comments.

I thought this was very useful but I do have a question. Where do babies come from? I know that when a man and woman do the hippidty dipity a little mini version of them come out of the woman's vag. But how does this happen scientifically?
