Educational Value of Spongebob

The other day in the car, I was talking to Katie about the Katrina victims and how the people that had lost their houses were being taken in by other states. How some were coming up here to Illinois and how others were going elsewhere. I mentioned that Texas had taken in a lot of the people without homes. When I mentioned Texas she said "Where Sandy used to live?" I repeated the name and started trying to think of someone that she knew named Sandy. Then it hit me. Sandy is the squirrel that lives in Bikini Bottom with Spongebob Squarepants. They had done an episode on Texas. So much for my argument that the show has no educational value. Leave it to my daughter.

Great! Being ganged up on. :P I'm not totally a hater. I let Katie watch it. I even watch it with her sometimes. But she does say "You don't like this" whenever it comes on. :)
