Bats Are Hellish Creatures

| Parents & Guardians

(My mother tries to protect my sensitive young ears from ‘bad words’ on TV, even when they are very mild ones that I’d heard plenty of times.)

TV: “Going like a bat out of hell!”

Mom: *correcting the TV* “A you-know-what out of hell.”

(We all stare at her, then start laughing.)

Dad: “Whatever you do, don’t say bat!”
