Punch Buggy

Well if you don't know the game you would not understand the ads for the Volkswagon automobiles. Basically, you see a volkswagon bug and you call out it's colour and punch the person next to you. My kids saw the ad and asked about it. Now in the ad there are no bugs, there are regular sedan vehicles.

So now they are playing the game... but it's so unfair to the 7 year old. Here is an edit from the car while driving them to school this morning.

7 year old: "OW! Its not fair I keep getting punched and I never see a volkswagon"

Me: "common guys play fair" (punch buggy is not a fair game)

13 year old to the 7 year old: "Ok there is a gold one in that line of cars parked on the right hand side of the road. It's been there for a while, but you have to see the VW symbol on the front before you call it"

7 year old: "okay!"

They all eagerly stare at the car until the symbol comes into view then the 13 year old and the 11 year old shout out "GOLD ONE" at the same time and punch the 7 year old at the same time. Poor fella. Someone has to stand up for him and I'm the father, so no better person than me.

Me punching the 13 year old: "BLACK ONE! Oh sorry! I thought that Toyota was a VW"

13 year old: "OW! Daddy! That's not fair!"

Me Punching the 13 year old again: "WHITE ONE! Oh sorry! I thought that BMW was a VW"

11 year old laughing in the seat behind me: "Good thing I'm sitting here"

Me: "Now! are we going to play fair."

11 & 13 year old: okay! "GOLD ONE!" and they punch me

and the coup-de-grace

7: year old smiling and not to be left out shouts : "Gold one!"

and he punches ME!
