So, there's nothing on, but that doesn't prevent us from watching anyway. We just flip through the guide until the description of a show catches our fancy. Which is how we ended up watching some ancient aliens show on the History channel, which in turn led to this conversation:|
Narrator (referring to carvings on an unexplained ancient arrangement of stones): Some of these carvings have misshapen heads with bulbuous eyes.
Middle Daughter: It looks like ET. Obviously, they saw the movie. It's a lot older than people realize.
Me: That's the purpose of the stones. They were a movie trailer.
Narrator: One of the figures holds up a mysterious disc-shaped object.
Middle Daughter: Duh. It's the DVD.
This show was followed by a show about finding hidden messages in the Statue of Liberty.
Narrator: Many people believe that portraits where the subject has one hand tucked into the front of his jacket are a secret sign that the subject was a member of the Illuminati.
Middle Daughter: I think it's just because hands are really hard to draw.
