MSW?! (Mom say what?!)

Texting acronyms can stump even the best parents:

Mom: Your great-aunt just passed away. LOL.
Son: Why is that funny? Mom: It’s not funny, David! What do you mean?
Son: Mom, LOL means Laughing Out Loud.
Mom: I thought it meant Lots of Love. I have to call everyone back.

~
Daughter: I got an A in Chemistry.
Mom: WTF!
Daughter: Mom, what do you think WTF means?
Mom: Well That’s Fantastic.

~

Mom: What do IDK, LY & TTYL mean?
Son: I don’t know, love you, talk to you later.
Mom: OK, I will ask your sister.

@ Virginia,

If O'Tink said so, it must be so.  :D

There once was a fairy, O'Tink,

Who drove lots of people to drink.

She KNEW all her compounds

(Could TELL from the bomb sounds),

That didn't explode, but they'd STINK!

It's beautiful, O'Tink...(sigh)

@T(h)ink

Indeed - Chemistry is one of the essential "resources" - :D:D:D!

For your German roots; some "Spiegel reader comments" - very sarcastic and critical:

and some info about certain emissions:

Salomon der Weise spricht:

Laute Fürze stinken nicht,

aber die so leise zischen

und so still dem "Po" entwischen,

Mensch, vor denen hüte Dich,

denn die stinken fürchterlich.

:D:D:D

@ Marianne,

Salomon macht' einen Furz,

Leider war es doch ein Schurz.

@T(h)ink

Lol - wait a minute: which one?

This kind:

or:

or was it "Sturz", or "zu kurz" ?

:angel::D:D


@ Marianne,

None of the above.  A 'Schurz' is German slang for the English slang 'shart'.  :O :blush: :) :angel: :D
