Butts Are Hilarious

Let's face it, butts are hilarious.

Yesterday, Liam's mom Abigail donated a pair of costumes that her boy had outgrown, one of which was a gorilla suit featuring an anatomically correct butt. And it was hilarious.

The first child to wear it was a bit too big and had to pour himself in, resulting in a butt emerging from his lower back, and it was still hilarious. The second to try it couldn't take the pointing and laughing, so gave it up within seconds. The third to wear the gorilla butt, despite having previously been a leader in the pointing and laughing, grew testy and offended, finally squelching any demonstrations of amusement except those that occurred quietly behind his back.

This isn't the first time we've found butts to be hilarious, nor will it be the last. In fact, butts are right up there with underpants and "knock knock" jokes with non sequitur punch lines.

When we do the Hokey Pokey, putting our butts in and taking our butts out is hilarious, while shaking them all about is the topper.

Last year, we witnessed the acme of butt-based humor as we prepared to end our day. I always sing a song in which I ask the children to "curl up tight," then when I tap them it means I've seen their grown-up and it's time for them to go. Marcus had curled up at my feet. He looked up and a classmate's butt was directly in his face, temptingly, as it turned out. As I sang, I saw a devilish smile possesses his face. In a flash, he'd pants-ed the poor boy, then chomped down on the full moon he'd revealed.

Even the boy with the pinkish bite marks ultimately found it hilarious, although we did subsequently all agree to make future butt biting against the rules.

And, naturally, for the rest of the year, every time I read the rule aloud, "No biting other people's butts," it was hilarious.

I put a lot of time and effort into this blog. If you'd like to support me please consider a small contribution to the cause. Thank you!

I was just reminded of how immature I am when I giggled for much too long at the gorilla costume! I love this post...way to embrace the humor!
