Me: That monkey in Night at Museum is so cute!
Mum: Awwww yeah (Grinning like Ian Hislop).
Me: alright calm down, it’s not pet rescue!
In the scene, the monkey slaps Ben Stiller, and in return, Stiller slaps the monkey.
Mum: OMG did he just do that to that innocent monkey?
Me: It’s computer animation… (while looking like Angus Deayton)
Mum: Bet it’s not, it’s too real!
Me: It’s computer animation, and I highly doubt Ben Stiller is going to actually slap a monkey!!!!!
Mum: Poor thing…
Me: Mum, computer animation is really advanced, look at avatar for heavens sake! Even though gran DID think Avatar was people covered in blue paint … and thought of all the cleansing wipes they would had to have used.
Film credits now roll up.
Mum: Americans have unusual names dont they?
Me: Yeah, suppose, yeah.
Mum: Awww someone’s called Fawn, what a lovely name! When you have a girl call it that!
Me: OK, i’ll jot that down for when im in labour in the FAR FAR FAR future, i’ll tell my husband that I picked my baby’s name when watching the end credits of Night at the Museum. It’s a tradition to watch film credits and pick names you would like to consider.
George’s note – she knows someone who would name their child Leif, after a Ninja Turtle voice actor. It does happen.
