To set the scene, we have Fuzzy and Pumpkin both in the family room while Mom is making lunches in the kitchen.
Pumpkin: I am not watching ESPN!
Fuzzy: Too bad, I got up first, I pick.
Pumpkin: MOM! Fuzzy has on ESPN and is making me watch it!
Mom: Fuzzy, change it to your choice of 'kid' morning programs.
Fuzzy: It isn't fair, I got heeeerrreee fiiiiirrrrrsssst!
Mom: Pick something neutral...
Pumpkin: MOOOOOMMMMM, he isn't changing it!!!!!!
Mom: Fuzzy, I DO NOT need this in the morning!
Fuzzy: (to Pumpkin) Fine, I am putting on the Teletubbies then!
Pumpkin: Fine. YOU will have to watch it, too.
(silence for a few beats...)
Fuzzy: Okay, I will put on 'Suite Life'. ( with all the dejection one can muster)
Pumpkin: Oh good! You can watch ESPN from 7:30 to 7:45!!!
Now, why couldn't they do this from the start... I'll never know.
