Two thumbs

If sucking one thumb brings so much pleasure then sucking two thumbs should be twice as good, right?

Miriam decided to try this theory out the other day.

"Twos thumbs!" she said, and jammed them both into her mouth.

According to Grandma she then proceeded to say the rhyme Here is the Church, all the while mumbling around her two thumbs.
I grew up saying an LDS version of the song:

Here is the church and here is the steeple
Open the doors and see all the people
Close the doors and let them pray
Open the doors and they all run away

When we sing it, we always end with a tickle fight as the people run away. Who even knew that it "really" goes:

Here's the church, and here's the steeple
Open the door and see all the people.
Here's the parson going upstairs,
And here he is saying his prayers.

I'm not quite sure how the actions go for the original wording, truthfully. 

But here's a picture of Rachel making fun of Miriam, saying, "Twos thumbs!"

As it turns out, one thumb is all you need (for sucking on, that is) and now Miriam only sucks on two thumbs when she's being silly.
