My son came home from school the other day with "Skifidol Puzz" Cards. Check out the link for a dose of Italian culture at it's finest. They're cards showing cartoons doing gross things... typical school age humor... with the added bonus that some of them come with the appropriate smell. It's pretty disgusting. For example, one card shows a kid urnitaing in public and the card smells like piss. Yea, just a bit too much.
As disgusting as these cards are, it's all in good fun, right? I'm torn between being utterly revolted and endeared by the timelessness of gross childhood humor.
Remember Garbage Pail Kids? Or Totally Twisted After Dark. I remember laughing myself silly over cows bungee jumping with defective ropes and steaks falling off them when the rope snapped. Or what happens when you combine the cats and lawn mowers screen savers.
Sometimes being older is a good thing. I don't have to remember these!!ReplyDelete
My kids used to buy these plastic noses that leaked green slime out the nostrils that they would let. drip. very. slowly. onto their tongues. Excuse me whilst I go puke.ReplyDelete
Especially boys. . .they tend to like those things more. My kids had vomit tasting jelly beans for a while they would give to unsuspecting people.ReplyDelete
I'll take the disgusting, revolting things over anything Barbie. Barbie was reason enough for me to pray for boys when I was pregnant.ReplyDelete
But piss smell. That is just too much!
I want a card!!! I would totally love it!ReplyDelete
I am cool that way!!!
Ah the eternal childhood mentality!ReplyDelete
Don't forget the Captain Underpants books (ick). Or plastic poop/vomit... or (my personal favorite) whoopie cushions (they seriously do make me laugh... 'cause I'm a 9 year old boy at heart ;)ReplyDelete
Children and childhood !! Hmm !!ReplyDelete
Makes me nostalgic !
As mom to 3 boys the parade of gross-ness never stops. They want to see every cut that's oozing blood, every poop that is accidentally left unflushed, any thing that elicits an "EEEEW!!" response from anybody else in the house. It is actually pretty funny when someone yells "EEEW! YUCK!!" upstairs and all the boys race to go see what it was. ;-)ReplyDelete
And whoopee cushions are ALWAYS a hit. With ANYONE! :D
And, p.s., your blog does NOT stink.ReplyDelete
I'd forgotten all about Garbage Pail Kids. Thanks for dragging that one up.ReplyDelete
Don't forget frog-in-a-blender!ReplyDelete
