"I can't believe it's not boobies!"

WARNING: The final photo in this post may not be safe for work. Though, technically, there's no reason why it shouldn't be.

The fam and I were goofing around, as is our wont whenever we happen to be in the same spot for the evening, when TG remembered a little trick he learned from a classmate in the third grade. He offered to demonstrate.

Ever on the lookout for *cough* enlightening blog fodder, I pounced.

DD played photog, and documented it. She's also responsible for the title (or should that be "tittle"?) of this post, so you can blame her for that. Though I came up with "tittle," which is probably just as bad. It's so heartwarming when you realize your children are following in your footsteps. *happy sigh*

Okay, so HERE is how we entertain ourselves at Chez Grimez on a slow evening. Allow me to apologize in advance.

WHY BUTTER IS BETTER 

Gather the Essential Supplies:



Disassemble the butter box:



"Meditate" until you are in the proper artistic frame of mind: 




With an exacto knife, make a flap where the Indian maiden is holding up her butter box:



Tape the other side of the box behind the side you just cut so that the Indian maiden's knees are centered under the flap: 





Lift the flap and see your surprise!


TG tells me he was eight years old when his pal enlightened him about the Secret of the Land O Lakes Indian Maiden. See what lengths boys were driven to before there was easy access to naughty pictures on the internet?

(On a side note, see what lengths I am driven to when I don't have an idea for a blog post?)

What's the silliest "naughty" thing you ever did as a kid? Or, heck, as an adult? Inquiring minds want to know.

Sorry, but I had to share that. It had me laughing until I about hyperventilated. Sure am glad s/he found the info "useful"!

Careful you'll get banned! :-)

*snort*

Anne Gallagher said...

Linda, are you sure this isn't porn? (My brother did this in 7th grade and got a whoopin' from the nuns!)

Linda G. said...

Michelle -- Sure! Join us any time. :)

Al -- Nah. I think my knee loophole is a good safety net. ;)

Kimmie -- That's what I said when TG first showed me! ;)

Anne -- I'm pretty sure it's okay to show bare knees on a blog. ;)

Summer Frey said...

Haha! That's pretty funny. I'd like to know how the original kid came up with that...

We still get a kick from typing 5318008 on the calculator and holding it upside down...

Linda G. said...

Summer -- Ha! We'd type 7734 on the calculator and look at it upside down, but I like yours better. *grin*

Kristina said...

This is so great! Although I did have to put my glasses on in order to fully appreciate it. :)

abby mumford said...

ha ha ha. classic. i've never seen the butter trick, but i have typed 77348008 on a calculator, though summer's numbers do make more sense. the things kids do.

Jason Beymer said...

Hilarious! I've learned something new and useful this morning.

Linda G. said...

Kristina -- LOL! Yeah, TG says the butter box is smaller than it used to be. (Honestly, I did NOT mean that to sound dirty, but it kind of does, doesn't it? Sorry!)

Abby -- Ha! Some things never get old. ;)

Bill Cameron said...

That is so hot. As they taught us in biology class: stimulus -> response. Ahem.

A Novel Woman said...

I remember a kid answering a biology question with "orgasm" instead of "organism" to the delight of the class. He was known as Jack Off for the rest of the year.

We don't get THAT kind of butter here.

Kelly Breakey said...

Oh. My. God. (just imagine that said in the voice of Janice from Friends.) I am still laughing.

Teri Anne Stanley said...

When I was in high school my junior class float made a football player for the homecoming parade with the jersey number 69. The next year they made us change it. We did. To 77 (8 more).

Linda G. said...

Bill -- Almost as hot as old issues of National Geographic, right?

Novel Woman -- Snort! Oh, that poor kid!

Kelly -- I could just hear that voice. Glad to provide a little laughter. :)

Linda G. said...

Jason -- Yes, I do try to provide educational content whenever possible. ;)

Teri Anne -- ROF,L! Subtle, but oh so funny! Love it. ;)

Karla Nellenbach said...

ahahaha! *snort* I don't think I will look at butter quite the same way again.

GĂ©nette Wood said...

I never have Land O'Lakes anything, and today I happened to be drinking their milk when I read your post. I think milk will be ruined for me for a time. *kneast milk* ;)

Trisha Leigh said...

That...is pretty awesome. Can you sponsor a camp for these types of crafts, because I would definitely attend.

Candyland said...

AHAHA!!! OMG, I have to make one of these for the hubs's bday!!!

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

hahaha! Too flippiin' fun!
Since you are such a fan of my son, I will quote him again, when he was 2 and had his head on my chest: "Mmmm...boobies. I like boobies!"

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Too funny! The things males will do, eh? Although I didn't participate, a bunch of the guys in my high school's class of '65 pulled a pretty good fast one. In those days, each senior responded to a bunch of questions to provide some interesting "color" to the yearbook. A whole group of guys all claimed to be heading to the Florida University of Cultural Knowledge. The yearbook staff didn't catch on until it was too late.

Linda G. said...

Karla -- Me, neither. It's a lot more fun now. ;)

Genette -- Serendipity. ;)

Trisha -- Well, that's the only naughty craft I know...unless you count making stripper tassels from cut up pieces of Swiffer dusters & double-stick tape.

Candyland -- Let me know his reaction. Men pretty much always like it. ;)

Dawn -- Ha! Your son is most definitely a guy. ;)

Linda G. said...

Susan -- Now, that's hilarious!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Hmmm ... it seems like a lot of trouble to see that Indian gal's boobies. I'm not sure my attention span would last long enough to complete the project!

Bess Weatherby said...

Wow. Some things never change, eh?

I think sometimes the random posts end up being the best. This had me cracking up!

Geoffrey Cubbage said...

My little trick with folding a $20 bill to show the Twin Towers falling suddenly seems woefully inadequate. I think I'm switching brands!

Steve Clayworth said...

I remember you guys showing me that.

Did I show you the Aggie peep show, which involves a shiny spoon and some tobacco or black pepper?
