  The family film ‘Dolittle’ opens in theaters this weekend, telling the story of a quirky doctor who talks to animals. John Dolittle is a quirky-but-brilliant doctor who doesn’t like people—and who hides in his manor hoping never to see two-legged creatures again. He prefers fury, four-legged friends. Like elephants.

Somebody can add two more numbers and misidentify the year you intended to write. I’m waiting for Babylon Bee to come out with a spoof report about somebody having a financial crisis over a misdated personal check. Here’s the first 2020 edition of...
