In which I am baffled

Yesterday, I said to my son, ‘For goodness sake, turn off the TV!’

‘But,’ he replied. ‘It’s Batfink.’

 I was so puzzled by his logic that I had to go away and think about it. Leaving him to watch Batfink untroubled.

Do you think I’ve been had?

    flutter woman of mystery! you’re absolutely right. some days i’m powerpuffed …

  3. Yes, you have been had because “Batfink” is rubbish, has always been rubbish and ever it shall be thus.

    I suggest that you put your son into therapy immediately so that he can learn to distinguish between rubbish old animal superhero cartoons like “Batfink” and classic animal superhero cartoons like “Dangermouse”.

    You don’t look old enough to have a son that age, by the way.

  4. Oh I get it on a daily basis – Batfink, Lazytown ( I HATE that prog), Scooby Doo, Ruby and Max (I want to kill them). And Chuckle bloody Vision – shouldn’t those two guys be in a convalescence home by now? Fifi and the Flowertots…oh god, I’m frothing at the mouth…got to go and find some more Rescue Remedy.
