The Corner

Some Movie

Took the family to see Charlotte’s Web last night. This morning, I was treated to a 5-year-old’s pig-in-the-mud imitation on the kitchen floor. I also recieved a request that his name be changed to Wilbur. It was denied.

The book is better, in part because it doesn’t include any cow flatulence jokes (which went over extraordinarly well with its target demographic), but the new film is a very nice family Christmas movie.
