A question of relative viscosity

No, boys and girls, we aren't talking about multi-grade motor oil. Here's the lede from an article in this morning's Star Tribune:

After 69 years and two generations, the legacy of a Carlson as the chief of Carlson Companies is nearing an inglorious end.

A bitter brawl among heirs to Minnesota business legend Curt Carlson burst into public view Tuesday with the filing of a lawsuit by grandson Curtis Nelson against the company and his mother, Marilyn Carlson Nelson.

As Spot was saying just the other day: How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Spot is also put in mind of something a professor told him long ago. He said, "Spot, blood is thicker than water, but money is thicker than blood."

Spot isn't sure which is the pithier remark.

Update: Nothing personal pups.
