One day, Adam said to them, "I need to name you."
All the animals crowded around Adam to receive their names.
The line was very, very, VERY long.

Adam gives a name to every animal from the aardvark and the aardwolf to the bandicoot and the bongo, and all the way to the zebra and the zebu. But Adam is at a loss for words when he meets someone who looks a lot like him...only a bit different.
