Out of the mouths of babes

My parents stopped by with my nephews last night and we went out to dinner. As I drove to the restaurant the boys were playing with their new toys I got them for Christmas. Since I'm the coolest uncle in the whole wide world they got G.I. Joe figures, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.

They were using their swords to fight each other until the youngest suddenly decided to let his brother know that he cut the penis off his figure. This sent shock waves through my mother and she made had my father give a lecture on why it's not appropriate for action figures to be swiping at genitalia.

I laughed good and hard.

My mom asked why I found this funny. I told her I used to do the same thing when I was little. This did not please her as she asked where was she during all this. I told her I was smart enough to not do such activities in her presence. I think this sent her mind racing wondering what kind of things I was doing when she was not around. Poor lady. I think there are some things, okay a lot of things, that are best kept from them.

Thank god they don't read this blog.

I thought all little boys threatened to chop off penises? I had a friend who's son said "we'll beat your penis off" when they were about to race. She didn't know if she should laugh or cry? That video is hysterical...
