Scene: The Queen B and I are watching The Big Bang Theory, to which I’ve become addicted. (Thanks a lot, Tr*st*n.)
Sheldon (on TV): What are you reading?
Girl (on TV): Curious George.
Sheldon: Oh, I do like monkeys!
Girl: Curious George is a monkey.
Sheldon: Somewhat anthropomorphized, but, yes. Say, maybe sometime…
Me (watching TV): Curious George is not a monkey. He clearly lacks a tail and has an upright posture, indicating that he’s an ape. Moreover, given his size, innate tool use, and tendency to hoot rather than scream, I’d suspect he’s a chimpanzee.
Queen B: Nice. You out-Sheldoned Sheldon.
