Please to enjoy the following conversation between myself and my son while watching a commercial for Mad Max on the MGM channel last night:
Voiceover Guy: “..and it was a defining role for Mel Gibson, which launched a lengthy career.”
Son: THAT was MEL GIBSON?
Me: Yep. Didn’t you know he grew up in Australia?
Son: No I didn’t but that’s not why I’m surprised. He looked like a completely different person when he was younger!
Me: He doesn’t look that different to me.
Son: Also that movie seems pretty different for him because he almost always does comedies.
Me: Comedies? What comedies of his have you seen?
Son: You know, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, Robin Hood…
Me: That’s Mel Brooks.
Son: Oh. Well. I guess that explains why he looked so different.
Me: Of course you know I will have to blog this now.
