Universal remotes are seriously funny things. They're great, aren't they? No need for those pesky, extra remotes. Amazingly convenient. If you know how to use them. Which is why I think it's the perfect subject of hilarity to include in a series like Modern Family. Can't you just picture it? Claire at war with Phil's universal remote. Wonder if any of the kids will wind up as unwanted casualties.
I bet you're marveling at how that's the one thing I pick out of the episode synopsis. But you got to admit, it's already pretty entertaining. Got you smiling. Have fun with the official spoilers for Modern Family, episode 13 "Fifteen Percent".
Of course, there's other funny stuff happening in that synopsis. Get to reading then sharing in the comments! What's already got you laughing?
