Consider the lemming and its stereotypes. This could come in handy if you are a fox working on a fish trawler called the S.S. Cliff with a bear captain and three very impressionable lemmings. Being illiterate and team players, the lemmings seem incapable of hearing anything but the word “jump.” After several challenging water rescues, Foxy realizes that his lemming friends are not dim; they just don’t know how to read. Whew! Now there’s a problem we can solve, right? Literacy for lemmings! Go team!
