…Perhaps particularly apropos in the wake of Bush’s nomination of Samuel "Scalito" Alito to SCOTUS…
Rhys just came in holding a clever little doohickey that he built from cardboard slide-together castle blocks:
Rhys: Mama, look what I built!
Mama: Wow, Rhys, that’s really cool! What is it?
Rhys: It’s a courthouse. Do you know what they do in a courthouse?
Mama: Yes, that’s where bad guys go on trial and they decide if they have to send them to jail.
Rhys: (quizzical look) No…
Mama: Yes, that’s what they do in a courthouse, sweetie.
Rhys: No, they go potty in dere!
Mama: Ohhhhh, you mean outhouse.
Rhys: Dat’s what I said. Outhouse. Dat’s where they go potty. Hee-hee-hee. (hands me the sanitary structure) Here, Mama, dis is for you.
So I hereby suggest we change the name from SCOTUS to SOOTUS… and Bush can nominate any of his gay-bashin’ Bible-thumpin’ married-woman-notifying-husband-of-decision-to-have-an-abortion-requirin’ buddies he likes.
Also, here are the kids in their costumes.
Fisher "Anakin Skywalker"…
and Rhys "Wolverine"…
…and a gratuitous extra picture of Rhys just to counteract the ferocious ugliness of that mask. (Funny, I remember Hugh Jackman being *hot*, not scary…)
Happy Halloween, y’all!
