My wife and I don’t watch TV that much. Maybe the news in the evening and that’s about it.
Our kids, on the other hand, not only watch TV, but they download video clips on their iPods.
Daughter WhiteCoat showed us this excerpt from Family Guy where Peter gets all buzzed up on Red Bull. If the video below gets pulled down, just do a search on YouTube for “Family Guy Red Bull.” I have to admit that it made both my wife and me laugh pretty hard.
The problem was that our daughter was laughing at one part and we couldn’t figure out why it was *that* funny. In the clip, Peter starts milking a cow, then milks the cow too fast and the cow’s udders catch on fire. The cow runs away. A few seconds later, Peter’s son comes running through the screen with his crotch on fire. We were sitting there thinking “Did he just ride the cow and catch on fire, too?” “Did the cow come and attack him?” So we asked Daughter WhiteCoat why she thought it was so funny.
“Umm … because the Red Bull made things catch on fire when you pulled on them too fast … duh!”
Here I was thinking I had to have the “sex talk” with my daughter and she’s the one schooling me.
I must need more sleep.
