Joke About Sons



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 20x20 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
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 inAustin , TX has a 5-minute response
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

LOL. Very fun, Sheri. And just growing up with two brothers,I know many things are true.I especially love the Jell-O in the pool:)

My mom should count herself lucky she has two daughters - we never did anything to her waterbed!


Oh my gosh, Sheri, those photos and your "son list" are hilarious!

Do your sons know that you have posted those photos?


Nancy, fortunately those pictures are not of my kids. It was an e mail joke that a friend sent to me. Comming from 3 generations of women, I really appreciated this joke. It seemed fitting to post as an end to our celebration of Adam's 21st Birthday. For sure ,we have had our moments. Spending hours in the ER, when Adam (age 5) stuck a Twizzler in his ear and I could not get it out. Or when Jordan and his friend were playing Cops and Robbers (age 7), and Nieko Duct taped Jordan to a pole. It took quite a while for us to cut him free!


LOL. I always get a fresh laugh from that one, Sheri.

I remember fuming over the state of the downstairs bathroom and banning the boys from using it; and only later discovering their game of "PPX." (No, I am not drawing anyone a picture. Figure it out yourselves LOL)

I once came home from a walk to find my two boys hanging out the second story window (with their father glued to a football game downstairs) with a fishing pole, trying to catch things off the front lawn.


LOL, Amy. I love the Fishing Pole story!

This is so funny!
As the mother of girls, I can't relate.
However, I am the grandmother of four boys who could have modeled for some of those pictures, Sheri! I have to pass a link to this blog post along to my two poor unsuspecting daughters!


Yes, Deborah please pass the link onto your daughters! The original joke has MANY more photos than I could fit on this entry and each is funnier than the last. I am sure that Amy & I (and all other mothers of sons) could keep people entertained for quite a while with stories!
