(Sweeney Todd spoilers below)
Kid: What is this song?
Me: ‘Funhouse’ by Pink.
Kid: What is it full of now?
Me: Evil clowns.
Kid: Okay, what’s this from?
Me: Sweeney Todd.
Kid: (in a tone that indicates he suspects he knows the answer) … why have all the cats disappeared?
Me: Mrs. Moody put them in her pies.
Kid: Well, no wonder she has the worst pies in London.
Me: Actually, Mrs. Moody’s doing really well–Mrs. Lovett is singing this song, and her pies are awful because they have no meat.
Kid: Cats don’t go in pies!
Me: They’re not dessert pies, they’re meat pies. Like a pot pie.
Kid: CATS DON’T GO IN PIES!
Me: You know what Mrs. Lovett puts in her pies, right?
Kid: No … what?
Me: The people Sweeney Todd kills.
Kid: I don’t want to see this play.
Kid: Okay, who is *this*?
Me: Tori Amos.
Kid: Is it from Sweeney Todd?
note: this is the second time in two days we’ve discussed cannibalism.
