In the last couple of months, Skeletor has become very "interested" in sharks. Meaning, of course, that he eats, sleeps, breathes, and talks about nothing but sharks. Especially Jaws. Jaws is his jam. I say all of that to say this. Everyone knows the scene at the end of the movie "Jaws" where Brody feeds Jaws an oxygen tank and utters the iconic "Smile, you son of a" line before blowing Jaws into chum. Well, that scene is classic for a reason. And, as such, it has resonated with Skeletor, too. Honestly, I don't even know if the movie actually finishes that line, but a lot of the YouTube "Jaws" parodies that Skeletor has been watching certainly do. (Yeah, I know. I'm a crappy parent. Whatevers.)
ANYWAY, to finally get to the point of this post, learning how to rhyme plus shark explosion related dirty words has led to Skeletor's new favorite past time, rhyming dirty words. First it was, "Smile, you son of a witch!" Now, it's "dumblass" and "bam!" I'm sure it's just a matter of time before he graduates to "motherclucker." Frankly, I was unaware that the boy had so many curse words stored away in that brain of his. (Again, I suck at life and parenting.)
Part of me is chagrined. All I need is for him to go off on a rhyming tangent at school. I've already been there and done that this school year. Another part of me is impressed by the critical thinking skills required to pull this off. But, mostly? I just think it's freaking hilarious.
