Georgia in Strongbadia

So my brother, Khalil came to visit us and showed Georgia and I his favorite Strong Bad e-mails on the Homestar Runner website. If you're not familiar, I'm afraid it defies description except that its a cartoon with a quirky sense of humor. <> Anyways, Georgia is only four, but she thought it was funny (partly because Khalil's giggling is infectious, I think). Khalil can also spout the dialog verbatim and does so liberally. And now Georgia's doing it! From 'invisable' she quotes Homestar saying 'those things aow bad fo you' and from 'caffeine' she quotes Strong Sad saying 'that's not true...that's not true either'. She also enjoys seeing 'japanese cartoon' and 'dragon' over and over and over again.

Georgia has just gone way beyond cute and adorable. Her humor is genius! Although I am not an avid "homestar runner" fan, Georgia and I share the same favorite emails. Now that's just nice.

I'm impressed by her choices too. You and Georgia are kindred spirits so of course you would pick the same Strong Bad e-mails. I just realized the other day that you've known and been caring for Georgia since she was like nine months old. And you've always been there for her since then. Thank you.

I must admit that Strongbad was not my favorite thing until Aaron started emailing an episode or two to the rest of the staff. He (Strongbad, not Aaron) sounds much funnier from the lips of Georgia and, I must confess, Khalil, than in "real" life. It's that old literal humor at work. His voice is terrific (Strongbad, that is). True confessions. If you tell Khalil I said this, I'll have to watch an episode a night.

I won't tell him, but don't you think he will eventually read this himself?
