"Shoo Wee Momma, You Farted!"

The children began to identify the flavors by their color: Red was cherry, Yellow was lemon, Green was lime, and Orange was of course orange.

Finally the teacher gave them all HONEY lifesavers. None of the children could identify the taste. The teacher said, 'I will give you all a clue. It's what your mother may sometimes call your father.'

One little girl looked up in horror, spit her lifesaver out and yelled, 'Oh my God! They're ass-holes!

The teacher had to leave the room!

This story makes me laugh because it reminds me so much of my son! He always says the first thing that pops into his head no matter how embarrassing or uncouth it may be.

As we were wheeling and dealing with a car salesman today, Tyler comes up to me and says, very loudly..."Shoo Wee Momma, you farted." Thank goodness I hadn't because I would have been completely and utterly embarrassed. I told him to stop saying that and he continued to get louder and proclaim that I DID fart because he could smell it. Finally I used the 'ole Elementary school tactic to shut him up. I admitted that it was not my fart he was smelling, but his stinky upper lip. He stopped, puckered up and began to sniff. This preoccupied him enough that he forgot the whole charade within minutes and I wanted to tell him after the salesman had left the room that you don't ever say things like that in the presence of others. It's not nice and it makes people uncomfortable and embarrassed. I am not sure that a four year old can grasp that concept, but hopefully next time that I really DO let one slip he won't announce it to the world! *LOL*

OMG, I would have just died right there in the showroom. It reminds me of those granola bar commercials or was it snickers? Where they stuff one in the kids mouth b/c he's ratting the parents out for something. Too funny!
