Everyone likes a good children's book, but you know what makes children's books way better? When someone else reads them to you. This children's YouTube video is about a boring homebody named Mrs. Tapir who won't take any suggestions from the other animals about how best to avoid extinction. It's a sad story, really, but it's just like Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel: Mrs. Tapir may be unwilling or unable to change, but eventually someone will nail her to a basement floor so she can shovel coal into an incinerator for the rest of her earthly existence. Enjoy your crosswords while you can, Mrs. Tapir — the industrialists are coming for you.
