An Immature Poll

What other kind can I come up with since I'm the most immature one here, but here goes.

I just got back from Costco (buying non-grey meat) and while I was waiting in line I happened to notice the contents of the cart ahead of me as the woman was pulling them out (yes, I'm one of those who look). She pulled out a big can of Poppycock popcorn. So after I stopped giggling like a girl I wondered which words or items make others laugh.

Hifi - I went to a really conservative college and my friend and I had a list of words that made most fellow students uncomfortable and we would use them in the cafeteria in order to get other people to look at us (and usually cringe...)

The List:
grope
probe
erected
panties
masticate
moist

Bonus points for getting several words into one sentence.

Poppycock. Hee hee.... He said Poppycock.

How about the fact that I once had a student named John Thomas?

Or reading, "Malted Milk Balls" on the side of the Whoppers box?

Or when someone at the Mexican place orders a tuna taco? When I was growing up, that was slang for vagina.

Yeah, even though I recently left middle school for elementary, once a middle school teacher, always a middle school teacher.

SOFTBALLS

When I was a kid, I signed up for a softball league. My mom called a local sporting good place and asked the man on the phone if he had softballs. My mother started hysterically laughing and hung up the phone. I had no idea why she was laughing. She finally explained it to me so I still chuckle when I hear it!!

BTW... love Poppycock!!

This reminds me of a time when I was working at the front desk of a hotel; a few of us were there, including a teenage coworker. One of her friend stopped by to visit with us. We talked her into going down to the local ice cream parlor to pick up treats for all of us. We all gave the girl our order and money, but an older lady who worked with us wanted a vanilla sundae with wet walnuts. The friend was horrified and refused to go in and order something with wet walnuts. It was funny; not sure how that one was resolved - maybe we just called in the order, so all she had to do was pick it up.

My first job was at a Carvel. My friend's parents owned it. Somebody came in and asked for wet nuts. I was trying not to laugh but I had just started and had no idea what wet nuts were. I had to ask my friend's father and we all just started cracking up.

Forgot about that one!!!

Our kindergarten classes have a whole unit on balls, and I love to visit them during science. Balls, balls, balls. Boys and girls, compare your balls. Who has the biggest balls? Who's balls bounce the highest? and so on... The Kdgn. teachers are just as immature as I am, so it's lots of fun. And it gets me started on the SNL skit with the "schweaty balls." Too funny!

Most of those get to me.....

When I hear someone call out to our friend "Woody," I always laugh!! Cannot help myself....

If I hear someone say an obese man looks pregnant, I have to bite my tongue. When I laugh because in college, my friend Sonny would always stick out his abdomen and say to unsuspecting girls that he was pregnant. When they would question him, he say, "Yeah, I'm having a baby elelphant...wanna see the trunk?"

I was at a potluck Christmas party last year, and I'd made caramel popcorn. The hostess asked me, "How long did it take to do the poppycock?"

I had never heard the term before this, so you can imagine the look on my face.

Also, we have these seed pod things at our school that the kids call itchy balls. It's taken me 10 years, but I have finally learned to NOT smile when I heard this term. In fact, the kids were dumping said seed pods down each other's shirts, and the principal sent out an e-mail about this with "Itchy Balls" as the title. She still hasn't lived that one down. The faculty is now calling them Itchy Bombs to try to change the old expression.

It doesn't take much to make me chuckle, especially since being married to my husband who has a hilarious, although inappropriate sense of humor... Here's a few of mine, now that I'm done laughing at the others:
  • crushed nuts
  • When we come in from the playground I say, "hold your balls," meaning don't let the playground balls bounce in the hallway. Last year I had to say "hold your spheres" because a few cracked up everytime I said balls.
  • I thought I had more, but that's it for now.

Balls...the word always makes me laugh. I also have told kids to "hold their balls" and asked our male teacher if he had any balls (to play kickball with). One day a kid in my class asked on the way to recess if they should take their balls out with them. The whole class cracked up.

In football when a player "penetrates the hole" I crack up.

Other words:
nuts
peacock
Moby Dick

I was student teaching and using SRA direct instruction thinking skills. The lesson that I was on introduced the word "masticate". On this particular day I was being observed by my supervising proffessor. He bust out laughing when I said the word and couldn't stop. He finally had to excuse himself from the room. Needless to say I received an excellent observation.

Our school was installing a new playground. A group of parent volunteers and teachers worked together to "erect" the playground. One of the teacher's who was unable to help install the playground walked into the teacher's lounge and said "Did any of you help with the erection of the new playground.?".(She WAS NOT trying to be funny, honest!) We all just looked at each other and then she said, "I heard it took more than four hours" and then another teacher said..."I heard, that you are suppose to consult a doctor for erections lasting more than four hours". At this point I was in tears!

I love the infomercial for the Slap Chop "you're gonna love my nuts" youtube it, you'll pee yourself.

anything with the words "balls" or "nuts" hilarious. I have the mind of a 12 year old boy. Boobies are pretty funny too. Poop and doodie are funny too. Oh and this year the "boogie touch" went around my classroom, took all my strength not to laugh.

While looking for Kozy Shack low sugar rice pudding at my local Meijer last month, there, on top of the refrigerated cooler, was a can of "Spotted Dick". I did one of those double takes you see cartoon characters do and re-read the label. Yup, Spotted Dick. I looked around on the sly to see if I could spot the hidden camera -- surely this couldn't be a real product, it had to be a joke. But it is -- it's a pudding of sorts. I did what any mature educator would do -- I snapped a picture of it on my cell and sent it to my other middle school teacher friends. We had a great laugh.

Let's just say that have been teaching middle school for 16 years, and the majority of my kiddos have been 7th grade boys. 'Nuff said.

I used to think it was better to ignore them when they giggled or act like I didn't know what they were talking about, but I finally surrendered and just laugh with them.

Some immature publisher somewhere is probably still giggling about putting the list of writing transitions on page 69 so I could remind the kids to refer to page 69 when we were writing. And then I had to explain what "lively intercourse" meant . . . in terms of conversation. Oh, and I never thought I'd get past the moment when I had to read an old pirate novel aloud, and they kept referring to Mr. D*ck and the sea men. That has, however, been surpassed by this past year when I said "pecker" instead of "peeker" during my read aloud.

And the more all-male classes I have, the worse I get. Last year I had several boys who would wait for an "immature" moment to present itself and look at me and say, "Be the adult, Mrs. H."

Summertime....

Spotted Dick is a dessert that comes from England...it's like a sponge cake with raisins and custard. My husband is from England and I'll never forget one of the first times I was visiting there we went out to dinner with his Gran. They brought the dessert menu out for us and she goes "oh, I think I'll have the spotted dick! would you like some spotted dick dear?" I seriously could not stop laughing!

We have a tea pot at home that has all these desserts written all over it...things that are good to eat while drinking tea. Anyways, spotted dick is one of them. Not that long ago, my 14 year old DD noticed that the tea pot said that and asked "what's that all about"...my husband explained the dessert to her and she asked with a very serious face "does that mean they have a dessert called hairy crotch too?" We laughed so so hard!

Luv2teach77, thanks for the culinary scoop. Your daughter's comment is too funny! I love that she could say that to her parents. I bet you have a happy house.

LMAO!! Those pics are classic, Ima. Some of these comments- Spotted Dick with gran - haha

Kiwi makes me giggle now, as the first time I went out to a restaurant with my future MIL, she picked up a kiwi and said something like "doesn't this look like XXX's balls?" I about choked. How do you respond to that one?? (XXX = dh's name, btw)

One time we drove past a Strip club and on the sign outside it said "All You Can Eat".

Like a PP said, duty makes a bunch of us chuckle at school.

OK, when they talk about the Big Balls on Wipeout, it gets me. I know there are more out there, but I am drawing a blank. Often when teaching, there will be something we are reading/learning about and in my immature moments, I will mentally laugh but not out loud because then that would be a whole other lesson to teach the kids. I try to avoid phone calls about things like that!

The best I remember it was an old combo drive-in restaurant, gas station, and store. Apparently if you wanted gas or drive-up service, you were supposed to park your car and blow the horn.

About 10 years ago, when Harry Wong was all the rage, our district bought everyone copies of the book "The First Days of School" and if someone wanted to see your copy, they'd ask, "Who has a Harry Wong?"

...and I taught middle school

My husband caulks

My teenage sons love to tease DH when he brings out his tool kit.

"Gonna caulk, Dad?"

"Got your caulk gun loaded, Dad?"

"There are some spots in the bathroom that are just begging for some caulk, Dad!"

"Whoa, Dad, put away that caulk!"

"Watch out everybody, Dad's got his caulk out!"

I guess it never gets old... 'cause it never stops!

Blue Ball, PA then
Bird-in-Hand, PA
Intercourse, PA which is part of Leacock County, and ended in Paradise, PA

saltpeter.

Who the heck invented that one?

In a high school lit class the teacher was asking students to take turns to read a story out loud. When it was my turn, I dove in, but almost slowed to a stop when I saw the bomb coming up...intercourse. Sure, the story meant "conversation", but that's definitely not what a single one of us was thinking when I had to read it.

Remember that after all these years
