Much hilarity last night as we watched an episode of the BBC's latest David Attenborough showcase Planet Earth.
Best Beloved kept making demands of the show, and it seemed to respond. He'd say 'enough pretty views! I want otters!' and within a minute, there would be otters. Then he'd say 'Piranahs. We need Piranahs'. Lo and behold, there were the Piranahs (sp?). Finally he demanded bats. Bumblebee said 'There won't be bats. They don't live in water!' Heh. The promo for next week showed... bats.
We also had the mystery of the barking toad. No matter which area of the world the show was in, Best Beloved would say 'that's the haunt of the barking toad', and we'd hear its cry. It wasn't until Bumblebee shifted cuddles from my couch to BB's that he realised that the barking toad was a lot closer to home -- and very smelly at that :)
Heh. Kids are so gullible.
