This 6-year-old’s Spelling Test Is Funny, But the Excuse He Gave His Teacher Is Even Better

Nov 13, 2014 By Abraham 0

Grayson was recently sent home with his latest spelling test. For the test, he was required to use each word in a sentence. Without being instructed, Grayson used this as an opportunity to write a 6-sentence story that is commendable for both its continuity and its profound grasp of scatological humor.

Even better than his sentences, though, is the excuse he gave his teacher for his choice of topics.

To explain his son’s awesome Vitamin D remark, Grayson’s dad says

Honestly I have no idea. The kid spends his chore money on things like visual encyclopedias of human anatomy and chooses science documentaries over cartoons. The things he comes up with are constantly surprising me.

Nov 4, 2014 By Abraham 0

This is not just another post-anesthesia video. Those are funny, but they’re also often pretty predictable.

This, this is a whole new level of funny.

From the description…

This hilarious video is of my son Cameron after getting his wisdom teeth removed. Although he’s 18, I had NEVER heard my son say a swear nor say the “N” word in my presence until this day!

And boy did he bring it all out!

He starts out talking about his “shaky, stanky, wanky leg” and it just gets better from there…

(NSFW language, obviously)

The word “No” seems simple enough. Just two letters, and therefore two sounds, right?

Not if you’re Australian.

At a panel discussion a few years ago, Zachary Levi explained how he learned to imitate an Australian saying the surprisingly complicated word…

Brits and Americans Spell Differently Because of One Guy Who Didn’t Like England

Oct 8, 2014 By Joey White 2

If you’ve ever wondered why Americans and Brits disagree on how to spell words like “center/centre” or “color/colour,” this video is for you.
