Non-Stupid Thing of the Week

A bit of a departure on this one.

The other day, I was playing a card game with my most loyal friend and his family. The game is complicated, but the basic point of it is to thwart the other players, using occasionally cruel means. After a particularly nasty attack on his brother (by his own father), my friend's seven year old son sat up and proclaimed, "MAGNETO WAS RIGHT!"

It was one of the most sickeningly hilarious comments I've ever heard from a child, since he didn't know the context of that statement (just that I have a sticker on my car that says it), but it was totally appropriate to the moment.

I'm sure that it . . .

Hmmm. Maybe it didn't translate well as an anecdote. Sorry.
