Overheard in the video store

What follows is a conversation overhead yesterday in the video store between a father and his son, who appeared to be about 8.

Son: *Looks at DVD box, reads title* “Carnival.”
Father: “Read that again.”
Son: “Car.. Carb… Cannibal.”
Father: “Yeah, that means ‘meat eater’.”
Son: *~10 seconds go by* “Another word for that is ‘carnivore’.”
Father: “Oh, I guess that actually means ‘one who eats their own’.”
Father: *~15 seconds go by* “You know, once at a job site I was working at we had a guy who was arrested and taken away for cannibalism.”
Father: *~10 seconds go by* “But that wasn’t in America.”
