Who Says Parenting Isn’t Fun?

I’ve been finding quite a few reasons to smile the past week or so. Tonight was no exception. Our bedtime story with the kid has been Captain Underpants And The Perilous Plot Of Professor Poopypants and we all got a great chuckle out of the name game in Chapter 15 – The Name Change-O-Chart 2000.

Here’s how it goes. Your new name is determined by checking List 1 for your first initial. Check List 2 for your last initial. And check List 3 for the last letter of your last name.

A=Stinky
B=Lumpy
C=Buttercup
D=Gidget
E=Crusty
F=Greasy
G=Fluffy
H=Cheeseball
I=Chim-Chim
J=Poopsie
K=Flunkie
L=Booger
M=Pinky
N=Zippy
O=Goober
P=Doofus
Q=Slimy
R=Loopy
S=Snotty
T=Falafel
U=Dorky
V=Squeezit
W=Oprah
X=Skipper
Y=Dinky
Z=Zsa=Zsa
A=Diaper
B=Toilet
C=Giggle
D=Bubble
E=Girdle
F=Barf
G=Lizard
H=Waffle
I=Cootie
J=Monkey
K=Potty
L=Liver
M=Banana
N=Rhino
O=Burger
P=Hamster
Q=Toad
R=Gizzard
S=Pizza
T=Gerbil
U=Chicken
V=Pickle
W=Chuckle
X=Tofu
Y=Gorilla
Z=Stinker
A=Head
B=Mouth
C=Face
D=Nose
E=Tush
F=Breath
G=Pants
H=Shorts
I=Lips
J=Honker
K=Butt
L=Brain
M=Tushie
N=Chunks
O=Hiney
P=Biscuits
Q=Toes
R=Buns
S=Fanny
T=Sniffles
U=Sprinkles
V=Kisser
W=Squirt
X=Humperdink
Y=Brains
Z=Juice

Sitting here at age 36 — sometimes struggling with the challenge of relating to a young son — I’m not sure who laughed more. Fourth grade would have been so much easier if I had this list at my disposal. 🙂
