Ah, courtesy of the two boys that live in my house...

DS9 loves music, especially edgy and/or current hip hop music. He will pose and sing along and learns the words to songs very quickly.

From the kitchen I hear DS9 singing to himself. Then I hear an indignant DS12 admonish his brother and send him to me. "Go ask Mom what that means! AND... you're not even saying it right."

In comes DS9. Mom what is a "big cot"

Me: (with correct pronunciation) is a not nice word for penis. Haven't you ever noticed they blank that part out on the radio son? Go thank your brother for giving you good advice.

I'm terrible! I'd be like - "A big cot is where the friends sleep on a camping trip and how 'odd' they put that there in the song. I guess the song's about camping? Who doesn't love a fresh s'more?!"

Now that was when they were younger; they're 11 and 13 now and I am a little more honest and educational like you - "We don't say big COT because it's crass. It's slang for penis..."

And once the kids hear technical terminology for body parts - they're usually gone. 'Eww, gross! Mom!'. They don't get why people would be into singing about 'that stuff'.

Yay! Stay lil longer!

Just because I've never had the opportunity to tell this story, and I think it's funny as hell, although barely tangential here, I have to share it.

When I was about 10-11 years old, we were sitting at the dinner table and my brother (2 yrs older than me) and sister (2 yrs older than him) were arguing. My sister called my brother a dildo. I didn't know what that meant at the time, and neither did my sister. She had heard it somewhere and thought it sounded like a good insult. My brother knew what it was, and our parents sure did because I was sent out of the room and there was quite the heated discussion going on.

Until I die, I will NEVER forget the look on their faces.

I have a mis-written song lyric story.

My youngest brother is 11 years younger than I, so I helped raise him. When he was making his first communion, he was given a sheet of songs that he had to learn for the ceremony. In one of the songs, there was a typo which read, "We give you our hearts and our liver." I knew it should have been 'lives' but I taught him the song the way it was written.

I thought it was hilarious...

I love it! Kids say the darnedest things.

T/J - sometimes you don't have to misquote...I went to a camp where a counselor had us do Gilbert & Sullivan, which was tough stuff for 11 & 12 year old boys to cope with. For example:

"Be firm, be firm, my pecker!" - Trial By Jury

"He's a fairy down to the waist...." - Iolanthe
