This goes along with when people ask me how it can be light for 6 months and dark for 6 months. I just gave up on the answer that deals with laws of astrophysics. My new and forever answer is this: yeah, one day the sky gets dark, and then God flips on the light switch 6 months later.
The following media was found and posted by my friend Mary Beth. I must thank you for this gem.

Wal-Mart? What is that? I have seen pictures of stores and buildings, but we only have ice houses called igloos. Also, please tell us about these fancy automobile thingies. I hear they go faster than the dog teams we use to commute with.
Do you have to clean up poop from cars too?
Which end do you feed?
