xkcd: Late-Night PBS - ダークな子供向け教育番組

Late-Night PBS(夜中のPBS)

女: Have you ever watched PBS late at night?

I fell asleep after Downton and woke up at like 3 AM.

[Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego was back on, except the host hadn't aged well and he'd clearly been drinking.]
 (「Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego」が復活してた。司会が歳を取らず、彼が明らかに飲んでいた事以外は。)

[Every question took them to some horrible place like Mogadishu or the Cambodian killing fields.]

女: The kids were freaked out, but they kept playing. eventually they were told they'd found Carmen Sandiego giding behind a bookshelf in a dutch apartment.
 (子供たちは怯えていたけど、ゲームは続いた。結局、オランダにあるアパートの本棚の後ろに隠れていたCarmen Sandiegoを見つけたと言ってた。)

女: The chief appeared and asked "Are you proud of what you've become?"

Then Rockapella walked out and just glared at the kids until they started crying.

男: I, Uh, don't remember the old show being that dark.

女: Maybe we were too young to pick up on it.

Alt-text: Then it switched to these old black-and-white tapes of Bob Ross slumped against the wall of an empty room, painting the least happy trees you've ever seen. Either PBS needs to beef up studio security or I need to stop using Ambien to sleep.


 PBSは、アメリカの教育テレビ(ETV)みたいな公共放送。「Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego」はそこで放送されていた番組らしい。
