great moments in fatherhood

The boys and I watched some Mythbusters this morning and one of the myths involved an elevator dropping in free fall nine floors with a dummy inside. Needless to say, the dummy ("Buster") was annihilated in the fall.
We turn off the show, I leave the room for a minute and come back to see the boys holding Mrs. Potatohead off the couch, ready for a drop. Not satisfied with the resulting carnage, they decide they want to drop her from more height to see what will happen. I would like to say, for the record, that apart from genetics, I contributed nothing to this appetite for destruction.

The Carnage

Our Very Own "Buster"
It's enough to make a dad very proud. It's also enough to make a mom very concerned for the future.
Silly impressionable youngsters.
