What Thomas And Friends Have Taught Me

My son has become obsessed with Thomas The Tank Engine, along with watching hours of Elmo he usually picks the trains over the red muppet character who takes a weird fancy to babies (although I guess he really isn’t considered a muppet is he? Whatever.)  I figured that Thomas The Tank Engine was so much better than the horrible shows that play now a days, Spongebob and Super Adventure Time will simply rot ones brain until they’re unable to function. Anyways back to the talking trains, a few things that this show has taught me (and believe me I’ve watched HOURS of it) are the following.

Trains are jealous beings, they really like to screw things up with their stupidity because they don’t get to pick up “the brass band.” They cause tons of confusion and delays because they’re too busy playing tricks or not listening to orders.

They don’t listen, when Sir Topam Hat tells them to do something they turn around and do something else making people late! You’re supposed to pick up your cargo and get the carts to the other train, not race backwards through Sodor Island running into other trains.

Trains drive themselves… yep, they’re the ones who don’t watch what they’re doing and run into shit, it has NOTHING to do with their drivers, they’re merely along for the ride.

I really don’t think this show is that much better than the rest other than there’s always a resolve at the end, the crappy train feels sorry for “not being a useful engine” and makes amends for its wrongs, it doesn’t matter that it cost billions in damages because they derailed and ran through a station, all that matters is that they’re all friends in the end and that their passengers (and carts) get delivered in supposedly one piece.

About vanitymom

I'm here to talk about not only the joys of motherhood but also the (not so much joys) of living in a high society world that you're judged upon your looks... where I live you need to be a 7 to gain beach access, an 8 to walk around half naked in the summertime and atleast a 9 to hold your head up high. I'm Vanity Mom. I will be talking about things such as parenting (of course) beauty tips for moms, exercise, and eating healthy... all while doing this with a kid biting the hell out of your leg because he's teething.
