We were loaned a nature DVD to watch with the boys.
(Can you guess where this is going already?)
Since we don't have a TV, we took it up to my parents',
to watch on their big HD flat screen...
and because it's fun to see them.
Oh, it was fun all right. It was hilarious.
We might have been able to get past the narrator's goggle-eyed worship at the altar of Darwin,
or the sight of a very sincere middle-aged woman seriously believing she could
sing the "song" of the humpback whale.
(I hope she met the fellow later in the show who
sings hoots like a Siamang gibbon.)
But when the narrator decided to challenge a bird for territory, using recorded bird calls,
the living room descended into hysterical chaos.
Because when you combine three boys with a very animated Brit exclaiming,
He's saying, "I'm a Great Tit and this is my patch!"
guffawing hilarity is what you'll get.
For what it's worth, this is a Great Tit.
And oh boy. Whaddaya bet my traffic goes up. Sheesh.
