Another Failure as a Parent

Charlie shared a quote he saw on the internet.

He thought that it was brilliant, but he had no clue where it came from:
CB: You see, Baldrick, in order to prevent war two great super-armies developed. Us, the Russians and the French on one side, Germany and Austro-Hungary on the other. The idea being that each army would act as the other's deterrent. That way, there could never be a war.

PB: Except, this is sort of a war, isn't it?

CB: That's right. There was one tiny flaw in the plan.

LG: O, what was that?

CB: It was bollocks.
I agreed that it was brilliant, and it seemed a bit fmailiar.

I asked it what it was from, and he looked down said, "Something called Blackadder?"

My kids have never seen any of the Blackadder series.

I have failed as a parent.
