Kerplunk! Wot so Funee?

Wot So Funee?

Daddy hates Kerplunk.

Dress it up, sell the concept to the Early Learning Centre, and call it the Bee game, there is no disguising the fact that it is Kerplunk. And Daddy hates it. Hates the little bees that scatter all over the kitchen floor, managing to get as far as the fridge 5 metres away, where they lurk, tantalisingly visible, but unreachable. Hates the dread as he extracts a likely stick, certain of a disastrous losing cascade. And hates even more the set-up – all those sticks that must be painstakingly poked through not one, but two tiny holes.

He almost never lets us play it. He attempts to persuade us that we are too old; unfortunately for him, we are 5, and 8…


Daddy spied another opportunity to gain the advantage in his argument, claiming that he is far too old to be party to the game – it says so on the box. But I am wiser, more devious, and far more competitive than Daddy. Mummy says I get it from him:

"setting up kerplunk"

  3. That is ingenious! We have the same game and I have similar issues with it; it just takes so long to set up and hardly any time at all until the game is over! We must have misplaced half our bees as well! :)

    Brilliant! Nothing worse than using your parents’ arguments against them. There is a politician in the making here!

    We have that game! And we call it the Bee Game! And it takes 10 times longer to set up than to play!
    Ours has been relegated to the top of the bookcase!

    Hahah that’s hilarious. We have the Bee game too. It really does take forever to set it up. Infact, I’d say not only is 43-15 the age for set up but the time in minutes it takes to set up for a 2 minute game :/

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
