Grow Up!

A couple of weeks ago, my daughter came home from school with a Solar System project. What planet did you get? Uranus. Tee hee.

Yeah, the wrong family got "Uranus" because I have not stopped giggling for two weeks. Did you know that Uranus is gassy? Uranus is 14 times the size of Earth! That's rich- you can't make up stuff that good!

I currently have a blue paper mache planet hanging in my kitchen drying...

My husband: what's that?
Me: Uranus (of course, I say it kind of crude and emphasize YOUR ANUS- it's just funnier that way!)
Me: I'm painting 'Your Anus'- kinky, right?
Me: Don't touch Uranus- it's wet.
My husband: you are so dumb!
Me: Uranus!
(it just doesn't get old! Try it!)

More random examples of how I need to get past 9 year old humor...



  • The Bloggess recently got a dog and posted about possible names, "My Vagina" being one of her favorites. The humor in that has endless possiblities!

  • Yesterday during the inauguration, Obama said "duties"- tee hee.

  • I was on the phone with my sister and she asked why are there so many inaugural balls? Tee hee.

  • Brittney mentioned yesterday was "get rid of Bush Day" and scheduled a waxing appointment in celebration of the auspicious occasion (genius!). The exact moment I'm reading that, laughing my ass off, I SWEAR TO YOU, Tom Brokaw and Lester Holt on NBC were talking about Laura Bush's carpet!!!

Under the Influence said...

You make me laugh! Apparently, I am full of 9 yr. old humor, too.

I want to know, who named that planet, anyway? Did you learn that? Maybe his name was Mr. Butts.

A. Kichu said...

That was hilarious...Thanks for sharing!

Brittany said...

HAHAHAHAHA! Bush is officially gone:)

And I snickered at every mention of balls yesterday, HILARIOUS!

Annie said...

As long as Laura's carpet matchesher drapes,she's fine.

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

Literally ROTFLMAO...really!!

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

Yes, yesterday was the perfect day to get a Brazilian...

Legal Diva said...

I was at my school and had to run around the corner to the neighborhood bar to watch the inauguration. So me and a bunch of old men sat and watched when at one point one (who voted for McCain) says, "There is nothin wrong with Bush", and his buddy next to him says....

"I prefer smoothies myself".

Teehee.... :) I'm right there with ya...

Tiffany said...

If you grew up you'd be boring. And boring blogs suck ass. Keep it up kiddo. Or I'll kick Uranus. hehe

Madame Mommy said...

Your freaking hilarious!!!

Deb said...

honey? is that you?? did you skip school and travel to the nice lady's house and hack into her computer?? are you SURE you didn't, because it sounds exactly like you, my sweet. or your younger brother.

bsouth said...

You're a comic genius. And have many readers with a 9 year olds sense of humour!

Heinous said...

I love that. Never lose your inner 9-year old. Things would be so dull then.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

That's just as bad as trying to figure out what was wrong with the leaking toilet in the bathroom. I told the plumber, I think there's something wrong with ball and cock thingy. (I looked on a picture diagram and that's what it was called.) I was so embarrassed that I started giggling as I said it and couldn't stop!

HappyHourSue said...

As my tween said to me recently, "You're really immature for a mom..."

Bug-N-Bee said...

You know, anytime my son starts talking about plants, Uranus is usually the one he needs me to remind of -- and I have a lot of trouble just saying it and not breaking into a fit of giggles.

the RaMbLeR said...

OMG!! Hilarious!! I'm about to pee my pants and just thankful that none of my gang are here to see it!!

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

That's great!!

I hope URANUS is dry now.

I find that stuff pretty funny too, some of us just never grow up :)

Jenni Jiggety said...

Oh...I posted a blog about uranus once! Uranus is FUNNY!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Hilarious!! Laura Bush's carpet?

Reaching to fill the time, boys? Did anyone mention her drapes?

I still haven't gotten over Pluto not being a planet any more. Sigh.

Sabrae Carter said...

lmao!!! i swear we r alike! lol

Sass said...

Came across you from Scope's page...And I'm thinking we must be somehow related. I cracked up laughing at "duties," too.

And when my daughter did the solar system in 2nd grade and came home talking about Uranus, I couldn't quit laughing.

Scope said...

It kills me that astronomers have found DARK RINGS circling Uranus.

Maybe that's where the Klingons hang out?

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

I guess I'll be 9 with you because, i too, laughed at all of these. Unless it just doesn't take much to make us laugh anymore. Or maybe I'm just drunk... Either way, 9 year old humor is funny!

Soxy Deb said...

Hahahaha!! I am laughing my effing ass off at Laura Bush's carpet - Bwahaaahaaaa!!! That is priceless. Maybe she should have gone with Brit to get a 2 for 1.

Dr Zibbs said...

Haha. My son said in school there was a teacher pronouncing it the non funny way. He said the kids weren't buyin' it.

Aubrey said...

Laura Bush's carpet. That's good stuff. You know they were giggling like schoolgirls inside!

Momo Fali said...

Oh yes, you and I would get along just fine.

Mrs4444 said...

Wow! I laughed all the way through this post. NICE.
