...On Raising Boys

Myspace Layouts

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3.) A 3-year old boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42- pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 x 20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh," it's already too late.

8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9.) A 6-year-old boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year-old man says they can only do it in the movies.

10.) Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year-old boy.

11.) Play Dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12.) Super glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15.) VCRs do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

21.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

22.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

23.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

That was brillant yet again, nothing like a good chuckle to start the day!! So true, marbles also make a lot of noise in the washer tub.

You folks just got me busted laughing in my cube... again! No young'uns for me, but #23? Yeah, I may have to try that one!

Serena Joy said...

Thank you, Queenie. I remember well the sounds of marbles (and many other weird items) in the washer. LOL.

R.E. Wolf, when we've caused cube laughing, we've done our job. Do let me know how #23 works out for you.:-)

Hmmm ... Clorox and brake fluid?...

LOVE the lead of cartoon! )I almost "washed" my monitor with coffee!

Us former boys have no idea what the purpose of the post is.

Excellent post, partner. Can I suppose there is a "...On Raising Girls" post in the works?

Serena Joy said...

I did the boys, Mike. Maybe you should think about Raising the Girls. LOL!
