My family has been a little obsessed with British comedy lately. I think it started over Christmas when I popped Aardman's Creature Comforts - Merry Christmas Everybody! into the ol' blu-ray. Have you seen it? Check it out. If you liked the original Creature Comforts, you'll enjoy the Christmas version.
Well then, next, Wesley became totally obsessed with Mr. Bean. I kid you not. What two-year-old likes Mr. Bean? The average American adult doesn't even know who Rowan Atkinson is, yet here is Wesley requesting to watching him 24-7. And I mean that literally. I think we've watched the three DVDs at least 20 times each. By the way, I am well aware that two-year-olds are not supposed to watch copious amounts of TV. Save yer sermon preacher. The other day Wesley knocked on my bedroom door, hollered, "Mama!", then even louder, "BEAN!!" I derived immense joy from that little episode. It still makes me laugh. So how am I supposed to say no to that?
Finally, our family just can't get enough of this YouTube video (which is a lot like Creature Comforts). In particular the marmot who can't seem to get Alan's attention. We've been yelling "ALAN! ALAN! ALAN! AL! ALAN!" like a load of idiots ever since we first saw it. And it's still funny. All I can think of is how much we're going to annoy my brother-in-law, Steve, when we see him this summer. That will make more sense once you watch the video.
(Fair warning: it is a bit crude in some parts.)
When next you see me, yell "ALAN!". Just don't expect me to answer.
