Overheard on the playground

10 year old: "Hey, lets watch 'The Barber of Seville'! "
8 year old: "YEAH! That's soooo funny!"

Must be children of professors of some branch of the liberal arts. Is this the moral equivalent of my (MDPhD) friend's 5 year old talking coherently about gravity? Or is there some pop culture reference I'm missing here?


  1. Hmm.... That would make a lot of sense. Damn! I liked the image of humanities professors sitting their kids down for a nice evening of opera on PBS. ;)
