Catapults and Orgs and TVs - Oh My

Captain Jake Sparrow just threw a ball at the 61" HDTV.

It was a soft ball, but a ball nonetheless.

So I asked the obvious question.

"Jake? Why did you just throw a ball at the TV?"

Captain Jake Sparrow furrowed his brow in annoyance and responded:

"Because Fred wants to play catch."

Yeah, that's a GREAT reason.

If you're FOUR.

And pretending to be an Org from the Lord of The Rings whilst you have made a catapult out of your belt and attached it to your arm.


  1. I am glad that you are also a Lord of the Rings fan. Maybe your brother can let up on calling me a nerd all the time. Actually he calls me "Dungeons and Dragons" which I assure you I NEVER played. There is nothing wrong with some hobbits and elves every once in a while though.

  2. Yep, that sounds like my almost 4 year old son. They throw everything at everything. What is it with boys and throwing? My girls didn't do that.

  3. Mer:

    Perhaps someone needs to be reminded of how he used to put on his Superman underoos and walk up and down the street putting people's flags up on their mailboxes. And then remind him that there are 33 years worth of similar anecdotes that are at your disposal, courtesy of another nerd.

    With love!

    Your favorite SIL

  4. He And Me +3:

    See my other post entitled BALLS. That's my theory.

  5. Next time I'm walking through Middle Earth I'll be sure to respect the ones that that have walked there before me. I truly mean that, since the entire movie consists of walking. Walking to a valcano, and then walking home. Wouldn't you think to at least wear some shoes. Yes you are both Nerds, but I still love you. I have traded in my Superman Underoos for Tim Tebow pajamas.

    Telling the truth is a dangerous business. Honest and popular don't go hand in hand.
    If you admit you can play the accordion,
    You won't get hired in a rock and roll band.

  7. I, am not a lord of the rings buff so when this comment is made please do not be offended...but if my son had thrown a ball at the 61" TV, I would have said something like..."Gone with your Head"..... =)

    If you're gonna play in Texas you gotta have a fiddle in the band. That lead guitar is hot, but not for a Louisianna man.
