I admit it: I’m a SpongeBob SquarePants fan

I appear to be enjoying "SpongeBob SquarePants" considerably more than my one-year-old daughter.

I actually don’t mind watching it at all, as it is full of in-jokes for grown-ups. Take its theme song, which says of SpongeBob, "Absorbent and yellow and porous is he".  You have to appreciate such playful touches.

So I’m a SpongeBob SquarePants fan.  Is that so wrong?


At this point, Raihana seems to enjoy Jerry Falwell’s favorite, "The Teletubbies", above all other shows.  A show that I’m supposed to find dull, of course, but its tendency to replay long educational clips (e.g., today, an extended scene involving young boys picking oranges in an orchard with grandpa) can make it positively numbing.

God knows how much mayhem she witnesses due to her parents’ longstanding and unabated "Law & Order" addiction.
