The best malapropism the boys have ever used…

So there’s this Transformer named Optimus Prime.

The kids call him “Octopus Crime”.

I have never corrected them.

They probably wonder why I always laugh when they say it, though.

  1. That is hilarious! We are well acquainted with OP at our house; I love that you let your guys go around calling him Octopus Crime. Tee hee!

    My six-year-old had the flu recently, and when he seemed to be on the mend he told me, confidentially, “I haven’t frogged-up at all lately”. How he got ‘frogged-up’ out of ‘threw-up’, I have no idea, but I’m thinking the inside of his ears need to see a q-tip. (But I didn’t correct my son, either.)

    By the way, I love the name of your weblog. 🙂

    That’s funny. Kids say the darnedest things, don’t they?

    I think you’re the first person who’s complemented my blog name. I asked the readers on my last blog for suggestions, got many, many good ones, and then I didn’t use any of them. That’s probably why no one comments on it. 🙂

  3. Well, I like it. 🙂 Maybe because I’ve moved a lot. The house we are currently living–which, as Murphy’s Law would dictate, is my least favorite EVER–is the one that I’ve lived in for the longest. Six years. Six! A new record!

    Wow. Six years. That’s like my dream. Okay, actually, I’d be happy with three.

    We lived in the same apartment in Texas for two whole years. It was a nice apartment, but we just aren’t “Texas people” and it did seem a bit ironic that that was where we could’ve lived for several years in a row.
