“Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies
from crying. (Put an empty cigarette pack on your nose for a horn and
make loud “snort” noises.) I don’t know why parents don’t do this
more often. Usually it makes the kid laugh. Sometimes it sends him
into shock. Either way it quiets him down. If you’re a parent,
acting like a rhino has another advantage. Keep it up until the kid
is a teenager and he definitely won’t have his friends hanging around
your house all the time.” ~P.J. O’Rourke
