I don't know what spawned the comment, but I called the children by their pet nicknames - Dork1, Dork2 and Dork3. Unfortunately, that spawned an argument between them about who was who...

So, to assuage further argument, here is the order:

Dork1 belongs to the oldest as this child has been dorkier longer.
Dork2 belongs to the youngest child as this child has taken dork to a whole new level.
Dork3 belongs to the middle child, as this one just kinda makes you shake your head.

In the meantime, they ofttimes refer to us, their adoring parents, as "Pinkie"...according to Dork2, this was being applied as Junie B. Jones sometimes calls her grandfather "Pinkie". It worked about as well with him as it does with us. Anyway, whenever Dork2 refers to one of us this way, it always reminds the wife and I of "Pinkie and the Brain" which then causes us to sing the theme song:

They're Pinkie and the Brain, Pinkie and the Brain.
One is a genius, the other insane.
They're laboratory mice, their genes have been spliced.
They're dinky, they're dinky, they're Pinkie and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain...dun-de-dun-dun

Hmm, maybe they come by it honestly...

No chemical enhancements...they usually refer to it as "chemically imbalanced".
