Doesn’t Fudge A Single Line

| GA, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Parents & Guardians

(My aunt, my mom, and I are heading home from work, when my aunt decided she needs to deposit a check at her bank. The bank in question has a drive-thru with those messenger tubes. As my aunt sends her check up the tube, my mom, who is an avid Willy Wonka fan, speaks up.)

Mom: “Augustus, come back!”

(My aunt and I are staring at her, since we both understood the reference.)

Mom: *as Mrs. Gloop* “He’s gone! He’ll be made into marshmallows in five seconds.”

Mom: *as Willy Wonka* “Impossible, my dear lady! That’s absurd! Unthinkable!”

Mom: *as Mrs. Gloop* “Why?”

Mom: *as Wonka* “Because that pipe doesn’t go to the marshmallow room, it goes to the fudge room!”

Mom: *as Mrs. Gloop* “You terrible man!”

Mom: *as Wonka* “Take Mrs. Gloop straight to the fudge room, but look sharp, or her little boys is liable to get poured into the boiler.”

Mom: *as Mrs. Gloop* “You boiled him up, I know it.”

Aunt: “So, do you think she watches that movie too often?”

Daddy Is Number One

| San Diego, CA, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

(I take my 3-year-old son to the urinal in a restaurant bathroom. He’s a little short, so I hold him up to it. He’s obsessed with Toy Story.)

Son: *to the reflection in the urinal* “Hi! I’m [full name]. My dad is a boy and a grown up. Mommy is a grown up. Jessie is a toy. And my dada is to love me always!”

Loathe Of Bread

| NJ, USA | Children, In-Laws, Sons & Daughters, Top

(I am at my brother’s house. My son is diabetic, so I have to watch his carb intake. He is four years old.)

Brother’s wife: *to my son* “Do you want a sandwich?”

Son: “Bread?”

Brother’s wife: “Of course with bread!”

Son: “Too many cabbies in bread. Bread is the root of all evil!”

Brother’s wife: “So, no sandwich?”


Making A Groan Call

| NY, USA | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

(My dad receives a phone call.)

Dad: *to phone* “…No, that’s alright. Bye.”

Me: “Who was that?”

Dad: “Some guy named Ron. He had the wrong number.”

Me: “Don’t you mean the ‘RON’ number?”

Dad: “Ugh.”

Alcoholic Faux Pa Pa

| USA | Parents & Guardians

(A family comes in to celebrate their son’s 21st birthday.)

Dad: *loudly and proudly* “Since this is your first time, you’re definitely not getting drunk. Not on my watch…”

(A while later, guess what I see? Mom and the son hauling out the clearly drunk dad!)
