Tacklerism Tuesday: Angry Birds Doppelganger

There are just certain things you never expect a child to say.  Or anyone for that matter.

“Baby sister has a fruit box on her head.”

In reference to a plastic toy fridge tray that he placed upon Lil Diva’s head.

“But I had to hit her with the ball. I’m Zurg.”

Ok, I admit it. He does look really creepy. No wonder he was left out of the books.

Even Toy Story 2 justifies violence toward his sister. I suppose I should be glad he hasn’t watched Toy Story in a while and hasn’t tried to blow her up with a rocket.

He’s probably saving that for the teen years.

He’s also scared of the Evil Cymbal Monkey in Toy Story 3, so hopefully he won’t try dumping her in the trash.

Then there was this keen observation the other day:

“Is that a new Angry Bird?”

If not a complete doppelganger, a least a distant cousin.

He “helps” Daddy play the Angry Birds application on the phone and loves this game.  While “helping” me fix smoothies the other day he spotted a plastic cup on the counter with Cy – Iowa State’s mascot on it.  The similarities are striking.

He looks ready to smash some ugly pigs.

Go Cyclones!
