Because everyone needs something stupid to laugh at today

baby bjorn pottyMy children have been singing a ridiculous song for a while now. This is nothing new in our house. If you knew their father, you would not be surprised in the least.

I figure they made this one up out of nowhere, like anything that has to do with pee or farts or farting on your pee or maybe cat vomit. (Or you know, they got it from their father. If you knew their father you would not be surprised in the least.)

Finally, I asked them to sing it for me all the way through. I listened closely. And I said, wait… is this the song you’re thinking of? And clicked on YouTube.


Turns out they think they are singing the lyrics to the Proclaimers I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles):

When I wake up

I gotta pee I gotta pee

I gotta pee I gotta pee

I gotta pee.

So I will walk 500 miles an hour…

because I gotta pee.

It’s not bad logic actually. And you should see the dance that goes with it. But I am glad it’s not the song Thalia used in her glee club audition last week.

Anything stupid that made you laugh today? I sure know I could use it.

  1. My daughter was singing, “Double, double, Toil and Trouble” as “Double, double, Toilet Trouble.” (Which is like the dark second chapter to “Gotta pee gotta pee gotta pee” I suppose.)

    (Thank you for the laugh!)

  2. well not laugh, but I did smile. My 10 year old son was sulking and pouting because we were FORCING him to watch The Princess Bride this afternoon. About 3/4 way through the movie he leaned over and hugged us both saying, “You’re right. I DO like this movie.”
    Actually he has been saying and doing a lot of things all weekend that has made me smile a lot in spite of myself and I am so very thankful for that.

  3. Two muffins were in an oven.
    One turns to the other and says:

    “Does it feel like it’s getting warmer in here?”

    The other turns and says:


      1. That is my 8 year olds favorite joke. She tells it as HOLY SMOKES A TALKING MUFFIN!

        You know, if you want a more uh small girl appropriate ending. 🙂

  4. my 6 year old son put red paint all over my 3 year old daughters neck and they ran in the room screaming she was bleeding before i could even scream they started laughing. they cracked themselves up..

  5. bacon.




    …still gets stuck in my head from time to time.

  6. Can you believe I can’t think of even one stupid thing my kids did today? It’s only because you asked, surely not because they didn’t do anything. If nothing else, they’re always good for the entertainment factor.

  7. Not bad logic at all! For some (agreed: much needed) silly hilarity in our home today, our 7 year old decided that from here onward she would like for us to stop using her name and, instead, refer to her as “Ladies and Gentlemen.” And, her little sister would be known heretofore as “Fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.” As in, “Brush your teeth, Ladies and Gentlemen.” and “Time for bed, Fffffffffffffffffffffffffff.” L and G was persistent in her reminders all. day. long. Awesome.

  8. I was in up state NY way too far from my children where was there for my grandfathers funeral. I overheard my grandmother joking with a visitor that if “those widower neighbors come knocckng on MY door I am going to tell them they need to be healthy and wealthy.” We thought it was hlarious (she was clearly joking).

  9. This weekend we rented a compilation of Dreamworks Holiday featurettes. Among them was A Christmas Caper with the penguins of Madagascar ( In one scene a lady picks up one of the penguins thinking he’s a squeaky toy. She holds him, with his butt to her face and squeezes…and you can imagine what he does. I lost count of how many times we watched that scene this weekend. And how many times I’ve heard “Mommy, his squeaker works…fffffffftttt…giggle, giggle, giggle”

  10. We live in Canada, and my girls haven’t heard the names of all the states in the U.S. yet. We got talking about Mississippi this weekend.
    My four year old heard the name, and responded by saying: “Mississippi? I only know Mississippycup”.

  11. so cute, Kids can make up such silly stuff. My son sings ” ring around the rosie, lalalalla we all fall down”
