Channel Surfing

Me: No. No. … No.
Bryan: But this is Batman vs. Dracula.
Me: No.
Bryan: Csssh! I can’t wait until Hank is old enough to get a vote.
Me: Hank only counts for a quarter vote.
Bryan: And so, it will always be 1.25 to 1.
Me: Shit, I suck at math.

    Kids get a quarter vote? Dammit. I’m so screwed when it comes to the Backyardigans tour.

  • Matthew Says:

    I got excited for a second since the twins would count at .5 of a vote. But then I remembered that Andrea has 1.75 votes. Bummer.

  • Beth Says:

    BWAH! You guys rule.

  • Jenn Says:

    I have two little boys and one hubby. This means I am forever destined to episodes of “suvivor man” “man vs. wild” and “deadliest catch”. Not to mention vacations that are all inclusive of testerone driven events. C’est la vie!

  • Christy Says:

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that will have to pass the math homework questions off to someone else! :)

  • Nate Says:

    Funnily enough my wife and I flipped through this yesterday on the Cartoon Network and I got the same response. Jeez… I mean, what do these chicks have against Dracula?

  • Spatula Says:

    Wait, was it two separate things, or a single thing called Batman vs. Dracula? Because I would pay to see that. Not actual money, but I’d pay in currency like chocolate or emergency socks.

    As I like to say in my home, “My math is broken.”

    Someone really should commence a study as to why men are attracted to old craptacular movies on TV. I’m sure there is a gene we can wipe out if we try hard enough. Be strong….pull the labour/birth card if you have to.

    I think there’s a “Batman vs. Dracula” animated movie or something, but at our house it’s the movie “Batman Begins,” which features Gary Oldman, a.k.a. Dracula from Coppola’s “Dracula.” There’s also “Batman vs. Wolverine” — a.k.a. “The Presige” feat. Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman. And finally Batman vs. Maximus,” that is “3:10 To Yuma” with Bale and Russell Crowe. Yes, we are movie geeks. :) But then I want to watch “The Jane Austen Book Club” and somehow get outvoted…

  • Jack Says:

    Ah, I know exactly what time and what channel you were watching. The big boy and I over ruled the wife on that one. Go Alfred!

  • Spatula Says:

    I bet everyone would watch The Jane Austen Book Club if Angelina Jolie was in it.

  • Alyce Says:

    @Spatula: What are emergency socks?

  • Melissa Says:

    Totally unrelated…but am I the only one who’s page seems to start under the MightyLife list? This is a new problem, last week the page format worked fine for me.

    Not me. She is not bad looking, but not much of an actress.

  • Agustin Says:

    Batman vs. Dracula was stupendous and you totally missed out… Cartoon Network rocks.

  • Aimee Greeblemonkey Says:

    The sad part is, in our house, it is Aimee & Bryan vs. Declan. Meaning, we want Batman vs. Dracula and he wants Sound of Music.

    OK. I want Sound of Music too.

    *Batman versus Dracula*? Why was I not informed of this earlier?

  • Deb (Missives From Suburbia) Says:

    Never forget: kids can be bought.

  • John Says:

    Batman vs. Dracula is awesome. I watched it.
    It was a special movie length version of one of the more recent Batman series cartoons where Dracula is trying to raise his dead bride, and is turning Gotham into his vampire army.

    I do not feel bad saying that I loved it. Nor that I still have it on my DVR.
