First Nation Whirlms

The little guy was playing Viva Pinata the other day.

He asked me to come see the First Nations whirlms. For those of you who haven't seen Xbox Viva Pinata, a whirlm is a little colourful, happy worm who likes to live in a tunnel home and wander around the garden.

Me: First Nations whirlms? What are those? (I knew what a "whirlm" was, but a "First Nation whirlm" was a new concept for me.)

Him: I call them that. They are the whirlms with the Indian feather hat, but I call them First Nations whirlms.

Me: I like that.

For those of you who haven't seen Xbox Viva Pinata, the whirlm is also the very first animal to inhabitat a garden once you set one up. Kinda puts a good spin on it, doesn't it?
