Preschooler Astrophysicist

Cue theme music and opening titles.

ANNOUNCER: It's time once again for another exciting adventure of.... PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST!

Scene: PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST'S bedroom, nighttime. PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST and DAD are sitting on the bed. Dad is reading PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST a bedtime story.

DAD (Reading): "Pipkin was a very small penguin who was always asking very big questions. How wide is the sea? How high is the sky? Is the moon made of cheese?" *

DAD (Looking up from the book): Well, that's a silly question. Everybody knows that the moon isn't made of cheese. It's made of pickles.

PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST: No, it's made of land. You can tell because it goes in, not out.

Announcer: Join us again next week for another thrilling installment of.... PRESCHOOLER ASTROPHYSICIST!

Cue closing titles & music.

Enough rambling. Here's a picture of Preschooler Astrophysicist looking for weak points in the security system at Disney's monorail station.

I'm sorry...what?

It goes IN not OUT? I don't get it.

But then, astrophysics is not my area.
