It would appear that it doesn't matter what age you are, if you are male, you are likely to think that whoopee cushions are a hoot! A couple of weeks ago we went to a little marriage retreat. At this retreat they gave each couple a gift bag at the end of the day making sure that there were boy and girl things in each bag. My dad received a minature whoopee cushion. On Sunday he tried it out on my second youngest, he thought it was pretty funny. On MOnday he tried it out on my oldest but it didn't quite work. However, they went on their monthly trip to the dollar store and he pointed out a full size one to my eldest explaining what it was. He was thrilled and bought it on the spot! He immediately began making rude noises with it wherever he could much to the amusement of the entire household.
On Tuesday evening he tried to get his aunt but she was too smart for him. On one occasion he had hid it and his baby brother saw him hide it. My sister and I couldn't figure out why the baby was throwing himself at the towel on the bench until we discovered said whoopee cushion. He was trying to make it go!! A day or two later the baby got hold of it and figured out that if he put it on the floor and laid down on it he could make it do the funny sound. Much giggling ensued!
Friday it goes to school as a show and tell presentation!
The next Monday the other grandpa finds himself the victim of the whoopee cushion! He thought it was funny, too.
Today the baby found grandpa's miniature cushion and figured out that it works just like big brother's. Cool. ppppppphhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttttttt
Boys will be boys whether they're 72 or 17 months!
