Coutelier Says The Darndest Things… Episode 1
Snippets of actual conversations between me and my nieces and nephews, all aged between 8 and 11.
Nephew (showing his new laptop wallpaper):- Are you Solar Empire or Luna Republic?
Nephew:- Solar Empire or Luna Republic!
Me:- Oh… it’s a pony thing. Luna Republic I guess…
Me:- But wait… isn’t Luna the evil one? Why would she have a republic? Surely she’d want to rule an empire? Unless it’s to trick her enemies into a false sense of security… I suppose the first rule of running a successful dictatorship is not to actually call your state a dictatorship. Republic sounds so much friendlier to other nations…
Nephew:- No… that’s Nightmare Moon…
Me:- Oh right. Sorry. I forgot what we were talking about.
