Stunning revelation (if you're dh)

So last night we were eating dinner and watching "Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!" when all of a sudden I hear dh exclaim, "Widget is a GIRL?!?" (for those unfamiliar with Wubbzy and his friends, that's Widget on the left, Wubbzy in the middle, and Walden on the right).

Cuddlebug and Bearhug both replied matter-of-factly, "Yes, Widget is a girl." Dh looks at me. "Did you know Widget is a girl?" Um, yes. She's pink, wears a pink outfit (with a heart on it), and sounds like a girl. I was a little surprised that he thought Widget was a boy. He went back to eating his dinner and watching the show.

A few minutes later, another exclamation, "Widget is a GIRL?!?" Me, ROFL. Yes! Widget is a girl (thought we just went over that a few minutes ago?). Apparently, this was life-altering information that he was having a hard time coming to grips with.

Just in case there is any lingering doubt, if you listen to the song at the beginning of the show, it refers to Widget as "she/her" and both Wubbzy and Walden as "he/him" so it's confirmed.

Dh cracks me up.

My DH will get so glued to the kids shows that THEY sometimes have to ask HIM whats going on.

Men are like that. Sometimes you have to beat the info into them. :)

Thanks. I actually got on a board and bit the dirt. It was fun though.

I was always unsure whether Wubzy was male or female. I can understand your DH's confusion.

Hehehe...that's funny. My son has just gotten into Wow! Wow! Wubbzy; it's second only to Little Einsteins.

lol. I would've expected that the overwhelming amount of pink would have tipped him off. Then again I always though Tweety Bird was a girl.

YES! chicks can be quite handy with tools too!

My husband has a strange obsession with childrens' TV. I have come in to find him watching The Wiggles. ALONE...
