On Rocky and Bullwinkle

I have to explain a lot more references in conversations these days. At first it was funny, now its disturbing. I found myself trying to explain Mr. Peabody just two weeks ago. There are no current cultural references to engage this level of humor with so the attempt falls flat. Now it has to be simple, abrupt and fit in a five second sound-byte to be valid. Everyone knows Gilligan though, that's safe. I pick Maryann by the way - always have. Don't know anyone who picks Ginger so why even ask. Really.

The wife sat down with the kids every night for several weeks and they went through the entire Monty Python Collection. All of it. They then did the same with the entire original Star Trek series and have just finished all the movies of the same genres. We feel strongly that this will give then a good religious, political and moral grounding in life. I probably should get the original R&B also so we have someone to talk to about it when we are in the old folks home.

Maybe Faulty Towers also, and some Bob Newhart. Yeah. That would cover it.
