Dad, I Want to Be in a Jug Band...

Tonight's bedtime chat with Mr. Z:

MR. Z: If I ever have a punk rock band, I'm going to call myself 'Saggy Boobs.'

ME: Saggy Boobs?! Where did you get that?!

MR. Z: It's like that guy Iggy Pop. [pause] Saggy Boobs! [laughing hysterically]

ME: [trying not to laugh as hysterically and failing miserably] What would your band be called. Saggy Boobs and the what?

MR. Z: [thinking] Saggy Boobs and the... Breast Avengers!

ME: [nose laugh almost sending giant snot ball across room]

MR. Z: [suddenly serious] But that's only my nickname. My real name would be Sagbert Boobyoolus.

[silence]

[We both fucking lose it.]

ME: All right, c'mon. That's enough. Now try to chill out and go to sleep. And please don't tell any of this to your mom.

MR. Z: I won't. [chuckling to self] Heh... Saggy Boobs...

Is it wrong that part of me really wants him to form that band?

You know what I like about reading about you and your fam? (Especially the spawnage?)

Sounds like my own escapades with my son.

Except, being that I'm the mom, we don't talk about saggy boobs...instead we'll sit in bed coming up with different names for farts and laughing hysterically:

Butt trumpet

Lumpy snufkits

Stinky plinkers

Foof nuts

Butt clouds

Crackin' a rat

Poot piccolo

Flabby flumers

Stink muffins...

...you catch my drift (no pun intended...okay, maybe a little bit.)

Is it wrong that part of me really wants to write about that band?

You guys have the best fun! I totally love the name of the band. And I love Tiffany's air escapades with her son. xxoo

Oh man - that is awesome. It totally reminds me of this list of fake "bands I've toured with" that George Carlin (R.I.P) wrote a little funny blurb about in a book that I would give my left ovary to track down again.

I remember a few of the names - one of them was Gorilla Tits. Also Anal Lace, and Margaret Mary Nofstedder and the Thrills. I have always, always wanted to be in one of those bands. :)

Saggy Boobs on tour in support of their new album 'Under Wired.'

I would SO buy that album...AND read whatever Nora writes about them...because anyone who writes about PEZ AND the Indiana State Fair is alright in my book.

Tiffany....'barking spiders' and 'wolfbait' are common visitors in our arse blasting discussions.

I LOVE this blog! You guys all rule.
