I gotta get something off my chest.
My kid Owen loves Thomas the Tank Engine. (Like, obsessed.)
Needless to say, we end up watching Thomas videos a LOT around the Gilder house.
And I have to admit…Thomas annoys the crap out of me. Every episode goes like this:
- Sir Topham Hatt has a “very special” job for Thomas.
- Thomas screws up the job.
- Sir Topham Hatt is “cross.”
- Thomas makes everything right.
If I was Sir Topham Hatt, I would have fired Thomas a long time ago.
(I don’t care if the show is named after you, you big blue hunk of metal.) (more…)
