Overheard in the video store
What follows is a conversation overhead yesterday in the video store between a father and his son, who appeared to be about 8.
Son: *Looks at DVD box, reads title* "Carnival." Father: "Read that again." Son: "Car.. Carb... Cannibal." Father: "Yeah, that means 'meat eater'." Son: *~10 seconds go by* "Another word for that is 'carnivore'." Father: "Oh, I guess that actually means 'one who eats their own'." Father: *~15 seconds go by* "You know, once at a job site I was working at we had a guy who was arrested and taken away for cannibalism." Father: *~10 seconds go by* "But that wasn't in America."
