Dante is in the back yard celebrating Mother Nature in all her glory. And what better way than to play a game of "Mother May I?". It is May, after all.
"Efurryfing is gettin' verreh green", says Dante. "Mudder Naychur has sent sum rain to kwench da earth. An' yoo noes wot dat duz, huh? Earth an' rain makes MUD! An' I reely, reely DIGS mud. Hooray fur Mudder Naychur!"
"Mudder May I dig rite heer?"
"Yes, Dante -- you May!"
"Mudder May I dig ovah heer?"
"Yes, Dante, you May."
"An' wot about heer? May I?
"No you May not! -- You forgot to say "Mudder May I", declares Mother Nature.
"Oh well, I can't argue dere", says Dante. "Mudder Naychur is always rite!"
