Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry

Transient Witticisms: Sewage plants, buttcheeks, and fuhgeddaboudit

  • "Dad-O," says Finn out of the blue, "I think New Yorkers speak a language called 'New.'" Cue discussion of 'fuhgeddaboudit,' 'badabing,' etc.
  • "Dad-O," whispers an excitedly conspiratorial Finn, "when it's just boys around, let's say 'buttcheeks,'—just not when Mom-O's here." ("Yeah, buttcheeks!!" adds Henry.)
  • Half asleep on his feet, Henry uses the bathroom & says "Auf Wiedersehen, pee pee." Endlessly surprising, these guys...
  • "Dad-O, why is it a sewage treatment 'plant'?" asks Finn. I explain that auto plants make autos, etc. "Oh," he says, "so the sewage plant makes poop!" 
  • Homophonic fun with the big guy: "'Dye'? Does it go into your clothes and make the grayness, like, die off?" Well yeah, kinda!
  • Finn claims the sitter let them watch "Pee-pee-est Kids." Took me a sec to decode: ah, "PBS Kids"!
