This sight cracked me up, I must confess. When my grand daughter was only about two, her parents took her on a picnic. They discovered that their usually sunny and happy little girl shreiked hysterically at the sight of a pine cone. Later that same summer, I took her for a walk in the woods and she had to be picked up and carried around any pinecones we came across. It made for a pretty short walk.
My theory is that she had overheard the expression about bears doing in the woods and in her two year old mind, that is what she was seeing. I'm sure she must have been wondering why the otherswise sane and sensible adults in her life would think it a good idea for her to set foot near such disgusting piles,
