What Have Phineas and Ferb Taught Us?
Both my girls love Phineas and Ferb -- it's like teaching kids how to be likable geeks. Which, since they are my offspring, they have a natural propensity toward becoming, anyway.
So what have we learned?
We learned that the plastic sheath at the end of a shoelace is called an aglet.
We know that the Eiffel Tower is in France and that Big Ben is a famous tower in London.
We've learned that platypuses are aquatic animals who lay eggs when they're not on a mission.
And, as Lindsey announced loudly, "We learned that it is a really, really, really bad idea to time travel into the future. Bad things happen."
Yep, that's a good one too.
