The Art of Eccentricity

A typical conversation at my home, Saturday afternoon:

Dad comes to visit with Step-Mother and 5 year old Peanut

Mum: Hey, guess who I saw?
Dad: Who?

Az and T singing Barney is a Dinosaur in the background

Mum: Dino!
Dad: Dino?
Mum: Yeah Dino, remember him?
Dad: No
Mum: Dino Dino man! You know him.
Dad: Dino? No I don’t remember

Az and T are joined by Birdy and Peanut singing Barney is a Dinosaur

Stepma: Who’s Dino?
Mum: Well when we had the shop he used to come around and sell those spares.
Dad: Dino?
Mum: Yeah Dino Dino!!
Dad: (thinks hard) Dino?
Mum: Dino, remember that time he sold us that transmitter?
Dad: (frustrated) I don’t know any Dino
Mum: Yes you do, Dino Dino man!

Az and T switch from singing Barney is a Dinosaur to Dino is a Dinosaur

Dad: DINO?!?
Mum: DINO, DINO, DINO!!!
Dad: (Frustrated, Angry & Dead Serious) Is he a fucking dinosaur?

Everyone stops and bursts out laughing

  2. So who's Dino?

    Was your mum right or did she get the name wrong?

    Now I have Barney songs in my head!
