Today, one of my parents' neighbors came by to say hi and check up on how dad was doing. My dad was watching Kingsmen when the guy came over. "Oh, I love this movie!"
My dad responds, "Me, too!"
The neighbor goes, "...say...have you ever heard of a show called Archer?"
My dad begins singing Danger Zone. The two of them start geeking out, throwing their favorite Archer lines at each other. The guy even brings up the Kingsmen Meet Archer teaser from SDCC.
Mom hears them laughing and figures the show must be funny. Once the neighbor leaves, mom asks if she can try it.
So my dad puts in the first episode. He only gets as far as the scene where the thought of his mom dying gives Archer an erection.
"HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THIS TRASH?!?"
"Our son introduced me to it."
A call was received.
"WHAT THE HELL KIND OF SHOWS ARE YOU WATCHING?!?"
What are you talking about?
"Some show called Archer!"
Now, mom, I would think me watching that would be a relief to you.
"I raised you better than that!"
Mom, you get embarrassed that I watch My Little Pony, which is for little girls. Now I'm watching a show meant for grown-up men. Which would you rather I watch?
"Don't you watch any normal shows?!?"
So I have been on the floor laughing my ass off and at some point, mom apparently hung up on me.
I need to send dad one of those Archer beach towels for Christmas. The one that says, "Welcome to Whore Island."
