We do our best in the Unknown Household to give the Unknown kids a classical education -- Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Popeye, and (as soon as I get the DVD) The Three Stooges.
They're still getting the hang of practical jokes. But I'm trying to do my part.
Tonight Unknown Son, Unknown Daughter, and I planted a LARGE (and very realistic) rubber cockroach in the middle of the kitchen floor. Unknown Wife was blissfully aware, talking on the phone with her mother, with her back to us. The kids peeked around the corner and were barely able to keep quiet as they waited for things to unfold.
Unknown Wife didn't disappoint. The scream was priceless, and made the kids' night. Looks like they'll have something to tell their new friends in school tomorrow (today was the first day).
Like I said, a classical education.
