If you have a son …

Filed under: Funny,Photos — gezi @ 2:09 pm

See, I got this question in an email (thanks, Beverly!) and I had to answwer – yup!

These pictures and the following text definitely resonated with me, and I have to admit I belong to the 80% of men mentioned in the last point of the fact given below.

Now, without further ado, here are the pictures first, followed by some interesting facts. (trivia?)


















And you also find out interesting things when you have sons, like

  1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.
  2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
  3. A 3-year old Boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
  4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20×20 ft. room.
  5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
  6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
  7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh”, it’s already too late.
  8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
  9. A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says they can only do it in the movies.
  10. Certain Lego’s will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old Boy.
  11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
  12. Super glue is forever.
  13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.
  14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
  15. VCR’s do not eject “PB & J” sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
  16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
  17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
  18. You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.
  19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.
  20. The fire department in Austin , TX has a 5-minute response time.
  21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
  22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.
  23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
  24. 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.
  25. 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

  2. This is just as funny as the first time I read it a number of years ago…though there have been additions to it (#25) which truly are hystrical. I live with two men who I am sure have never heard of this list and thought about sharing it with them…when reaching the clorox brake fluid trick I imagined the thought running through their heads for a brief moment of boyhood wonder to try it….I laughed so hard I cried upon reading that 80% of men who read this will try mixing Colorox and brake fluid…The pictures are a fantastic addition and convey perfectly the wonderous joy of being a mischievious boy…Thank you for the much needed laughter…
