Tell your child to tell her class they come from blue berry bushes, Tabby. Though some people might claim they are the leftover food of blue berry fairies, they would be wrong. (Trust me on this one, OK? I know it's pretty hard to believe...)

Tabby, just so your poor child does not grow up with the US egocentric view of the planet I would like to assure her that Downunder we grow our own blueberries .. we do have to be careful though as they are the favourite food of the blue tailed bunyip a species of lesser bunyip that is very shortsighted and has been known to mistakenly take a nip out of anything coloured blue so the pickers who work in the blueberry fields never wear blue jeans .. true story Tabby .. *grin* ..
