Another Language

"Mom? Wobuffett is a stale Pokemon. This is what he says, 'Wah-bah-fett!" And he has no brains. And if someone tries to do magna-punch on him they end up punching themself."

"I have no idea what you just said."

"Come on, Mom. Wobuffett is part of Pokemon. It's a video and card game."

"I'm not familiar."

"Wah-bah-fett! Wah-bah-fett! Wah-bah-fett!"

"That explains it."

"It does."


  1. When my son was Bob's age, I had to learn to speak Pokemon. I needed to know that a Weedle evolves to a Beedrill and is not effective against electric type pokemon. That was 12 years ago.

    Now I need to know that he wants to see Bellweather at the Gramercy, Citizen at Irving and Stick to Your Guns at Warped. Always learning a new language...

  2. Just smile and nod. That's what I do when people talk about TV shows I've never seen.

  3. I thought you were saying "waffle-butt."

    I totally know what THAT means.


  4. Is Wobuffet related to Boba Fett?
