Michael Fassbender is NOT in "The Avengers"
We saw The Avengers last night in a rare night-at-the-movies date night. Rare because we have a baby. Also because movies are expensive.
The Avengers win.
Shocking, right? It was a little touch and go there for a while, but in the end they came through.
On the way home, my husband and I were talking about the movie like two normal people who had just seen a movie, and I said that the bad guy was a good bad guy and this is how that went:
Me: The bad guy was a good bad guy.
B: Yeah, and that's the guy from Inglorious Basterds.
Me: Which guy?
B: The bad guy.
Me: No, which guy is he in Inglorious Basterds?
B: Oh, he's the English guy in the bar that does the "three" wrong and blows everyone's cover.
Me: What? No. The guy that plays Magneto in X-Men: First Class?
B: Yeah, same guy.
B: Want to bet on it?
Me: Absolutely. If I win, you have to put "My wife is the supreme knowledgeable being of all cinema, including, but not limited to, X-Men: First Class, The Avengers, and Inglorious Basterds. Oh, and Star Trek. And if you win, I'll put that as my Facebook status."
B: No...let's do something else.
Me: Oh, so you're scared?
B: No, I just want something better when I win.
Me: Fine, what?
B: Whoever loses has to change all the diapers for the rest of the weekend.
And I haven't changed a diaper yet.
Moral of the story: You should never argue with a Sicilian when death is on the line! And also, you should never argue with your wife when you, of all people, know she's seen X-Men: First Class at least 137 times. (What? It's a good movie.)
