Obviously, Not Woody

Buzz?

A friend of mine has a child who shall hitherforth remain nameless. This nameless child and I recently had a conversation over dinner (he’s 1, I’m 22, so I felt we were equals). During this conversation, his mother (Alethea B.) presented him with a drawing of Sheriff Woody from the movie Toy Story.

To show his appreciation for the icon, as well as his general approval for the movie and cartoons in general, this child responded with:

Buzz?

I tried to correct him various times, explaining patiently that Buzz was a spaceman and Woody was a cowboy (see attached photo).

Obviously, Not Woody
Woody: Cowboy, not Spaceman

Obviously, this cowboy he was staring at was not a spaceman and therefore not Buzz (If Buzz, then Spaceman; Not Spaceman; Therefore, Not Buzz). As a general response to my argument and to put forth his own counterargument, he responded:

Buzz?

I knew I was lost. When correcting him didn’t work, and he insisted on his answer, I simply changed the question accordingly in hopes I could trick him into a true statement. Let’s watch:

  • Child: Buzz?
    Pixel: No, it’s Woody.
  • Child: Buzz?
    Pixel: Woody.
  • Child: Buzz?
    Pixel: Woo-Dee.
  • Child: … buzz?
    Pixel: Okay then. How’s this: what sound does a bee make?
  • Child:
    Pixel: What sound does a doorbell make?
  • Child:
    Pixel: Who was the second man on the moon?
  • Child:
    Pixel: Synonym for ‘hot topic’ or ‘chatter’
  • Child:
    Pixel: Many military men sport a BLANK cut.
  • Child:
    Pixel: There’s something seriously wrong with this kid.
  • Child: Buzz?
