Proud

Felt tip pens and bath-time invite a six year old’s take on ‘body art’.

Alex: Shane, look – I’ve got a Harry Potter tattoo!
Shane: Ah yes – though I think Harry Potter’s lightning strike is a scar, and it’s on his forehead – not his arm.
Alex: No – this is still Harry Potter.
Shane: Really? I’d have said that your lightning strike is a bit more felt tip pen than scar, and a bit more Barry Potter than Harry Potter.
Alex: (pause) (insulted) Well Shane, you look like Barry from the Chuckle Brothers.

Though my familiarity with the Chuckle Brothers was slim, I sensed that this was a most impressive put-down. (the one on the left)

Alex has nailed you (even though I thought you were much prettier).
