Oh Captain, My Captain

There’s been lots of talk through the blogs about Greg leaving the Wiggles. The Wiggles are the staple of most households with kids ages 3-6. Parents talk about them all the time.


However, this was the conversation at our house this morning.


Larry: “We’re watching the Wiggles?”

Me: “Yeah, I’m too tired to generate intelligent conversation with Corey.”

Larry: “This is the Christmas special?”

Me: “Uh huh”


(pause)


Larry: “Is Anthony gay? He’s looks gay.”

Me: “Nope.”

Larry: “He should be. He’s cute.”

Me: “Then he’s yours. I’m all about Captain Feathersword. I think he’s utterly hot.”

Larry: “That’s probably because you have that uniform fetish.”

Me: “Yeah, could be.”

Corey: “What are you guys talking about?”


(pause)


Me: “Doing the Monkey.”

Corey: “Oh okay.”

I hate it when the kids pick up on stuff you don't expect. Good save! (Well, at least for now. There was a whole conversation this weekend about pinatas and sticks (in the pants) and the 10-year-old behind us GOT IT ALL!)

Okay, I need to know what it is about Feathersword. You aren't the first person I've heard that loves this guy. I'm just not seeing it.

Are you sure Anthony isn't gay?

I'm all about Sportacus on Lazytown. You can keep your wiggles.

I have to agree with Brian, Sportacus makes watching children's television worthwhile.

my son doesnt get into the wiggles too much. maybe he's too young, besides the show is a little wierd for me. ;) but he loves the wonderpets and the upside down show.

kids pick up on all the things we wish they wouldnt, dont they? ;)

Just found your blog. Very cool setup.

This post is just plain funny.

Granted, I'm straight, but I still don't get the feathersworth thing. He scares me a bit. I'd go for Anthony if I was so inclined.

The good news for me is that my girls don't dig the Wigs. But I am a Madeline aficionado, now.
