After one month of school holidays I can safely say I have heard more than enough snot, poo, wee and undies jokes for the whole year. Especially master 7 enjoys being the clown of the family and making his siblings laugh with silly business, which is immediately copied by miss 2. I may not always get kids humor but Melbourne comedy duo The Listies totally gets what makes kids giggle, here’s the proof:
I don’t know how they did it but The Listies have managed to fill an enormous 200 pages with terrible yucky, totally funny, ridiculous words that kids will find totally hilarious. That’s right, Ickypedia (RRP $14.99) is a dictionary of disgusting words! (And you thought burping the alphabet was bad!!)
Have you ever heard of a ‘nanstache’ (the totally excellent hair that grows on your nanny’s top lip), a ‘flyris’ (a bug that lands in your eye and tries to live there), a ‘gleek’ (a vegetable that knows heaps about computers) or ‘decismell’ (the scale used to measure how much something smells)?
No, me neither. By the time your child has worked his way through all 26 letters of the alphabet he will have expanded (enriched?) his vocabulary with plenty of weird words that might be very useful one day.
