Duck, duck, bo buck...

Want to enjoy the hilarity of hearing your 2-year-old say the F word over and over, without the crushing guilt of having taught it to her yourself? No problem!

Simply teach your toddler the "Name Game" song, as in, "Nutmeg Nutmeg bo buttmeg, bo nana fana fo futmeg, me my mo mutmeg, Nutmeg." Then, one day, whip out a duck-shaped washcloth puppet.

It's even better if she can't remember the "Me my..." part and just repeats another round of F rhymes.

Awesome!!

That beats my story. My brothers sat me down one day and told me to give Mom a big hug and tell her, "F@%# you!" beacuse that means I love you.

thats great.

I was in the car the other day and my 5 year old blurted out "What the Hell?!" I was laughing so hard I almost drove off the road. I guess that wasn't the best reaction...

Between you coaxing the F-word out of your darling, little girl, and Epu calling her "dude" all the time, you two win the prize for coolest parents ever.
