Potty Humor for Boys

Seven brought home his graded papers folder Friday night. One of his papers was an essay he wrote after learning about Martin Luther King, Jr in which he had to answer the following questions:

"What if you could do one thing to make your school even better? What would you do?"
So he wrote (I left his spelling the way it was on the paper):

"I would make a law tha Everyone will be nice to each other. It would help owr school a lot. It is my Dream. And people will shar."

His teacher wrote a smiley face and said, "I like your dream." I was patting myself on the back, having a big Prideful Mommy moment that I'm raising such a conscientious kid and a good little writer. Then I saw what he and his big brother had written on my white board downstairs:

If you can't read it, I'll tell you what it says...

"Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's an egg salad sandwich! NO! It's The Crimson Crud! And his sidekick Patrick the Pee Brain. "

Then there's a picture of "The Toxic Flusher," complete with a toilet plunger in his hand.

Wow, the pride that is bubbling out of me at this very moment. It kinda (sniff) gets you right there, doesn't it?

On an even more prideful note, my man is DA MAN! Before leaving to put in about nine hours at the mall on a busy Saturday (while I was out getting my brows waxed like the girly girl that I am), he FIXED my garage door opener. Not just a little bit fixed, mind you, but all the way, truly, and wholly, every single part works, fixed! He rocks.

I love me some Fix-It man. And he can write too.

What exactly is crimson crud and how is it related to the toilet plunger? Or do I want to know? Does it bear any resemblence to butt hanks?

I just asked Ten and he said, "The Crimson Crud is a superhero made of poop. The Toxic Flusher is a human that was mutated by radioactivity and wants to destroy all all costs. Patrick the Pee Brain and The Crimson Crud are always there to stop him though. They have other friends too: The Bionic Burper, Peter the Pooter, and The Abominable Toilet of the South. Their base is the sewer--big surprise, huh?"

He has no idea what butt hanks are--and neither do I.

But I think SOMEONE has been reading too many Captain Underpants books.

For inquiring minds (or people who have nothing else to ponder about this weekend) jog on over to Jody's cat's blog to find out what a butt hank is.

You'll be glad you did.

LOL Too funny. My son actually wrote a fully illustrated book about 20 pages long similar to captain underpants but all named different. Dave sure inspire lots of kids.

I love coming over to your blog. ALways good for a laugh and a reminder that we are all trying to do the best we can inspite of "The Toxic Flushers" that live among us.
Your writing and storytelling is great.
