Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby made up a song. They like to do it when they are happy. It has a dance that goes with it.
They call it their funky song.
They were inspired after listening to James Brown.
The only repeating lyric is “Stick out your butt now!” though they do intersperse some James Brown style “Heh!” shouts. And you guessed it, the dance involves them sticking their butts out. (Before anyone asks, no, they haven’t seen any music videos of stripper-esque butt bounce dancing. This is entirely their own invention.)
So in addition to their song and dance, Crappy Boy also has a new “joke” that he has been using on everyone.
This is his joke:
He tells the victim that he has to whisper something in their ear.
Then he leans in close. With a completely serious tone he whispers:
Then he collapses in laughter. Nice, huh?
So the other day…
I ask him what is going on with all the butt songs and jokes. I mean, it used to be poop so he is clearly growing up fast.
He explains that butts are funny. True. Hard to argue with that.
Then he adds:
His name? Huh?
A nickname? Butty?
I say it out loud. Butty.
Wait, he thought when we called him ‘Buddy’ we were actually saying ‘Butty’?
For all these years?
I’m dying laughing at this realization.
We’ve called him ‘Buddy’ on and off since he was a baby!
He was just living up to his name.
After we stopped laughing I explained that they are spelled differently and have different meanings.
I wrote them down to visually demonstrate. Which is why we now have a sheet of paper in our house that says:
Which Crappy Papa found when he got home and said, “Is this for me?”
No, it’s mine. And I plan to keep it forever.
