Too Bad Hate's Not a 3-Letter Word

There are lots of really cool 3-letter words
in the English language. Like "bug" and "pen".
Anybody else have the game What's Gnu?  The object of the game is to build as many 3-letter words as possible.  It comes with a bunch of cards that each have one of the three letters already filled in.  Then there's this little dispenser that shells out two letter tiles at a time, and you have to find the card that will make a 3-letter word with those tiles.

I know that was a little complicated, and I don't expect Big Daddy to get it, but hopefully the rest of you are following.

So one of our lovely therapists, Raven, was playing the game with Audrey and brought to my attention Audrey's winning array of 3-letter words...


I thought that this was rather..shall we say...interesting, especially in light of that whole hating bliss thing.  Am I raising a little Mistress of the Dark or what?  Cuz that would be super cool. 

It only takes one little 2-letter word to make "Rot in sin, bad ass!!" or "Sin my ass, bad rot!" or best of all "Rot in ass, Sinbad!!"  I'm totally gonna start yelling that out my car window like yesterday. 

On another note, as I was searching for "What's Gnu?" images, I came across this photo of a kid playing the game...

TOU?  PEB?  HA!  Typical kids are D-U-M.

  1. Duh. Maybe if you wrote the post all in three letter words, I could have understood.

  2. HAHAHAHA!! You know.. in 1997 our neurologist gave us this diagnosis and told us "your son will probably never talk". Well, 14 years later, he can tell you to FUCK OFF and get all of the pronouns right. (though, he still refers to people as being sums in the bitches"). So when the school started to get upset at the profanity, we had to talk about the bigger picture. "Maybe he doesn't LIKE YOU!"

  3. a four letter version of this game might be fun!

  4. We do Scrabble slam which is a 4 letter version of that game. My mom made the rule that every game starts with F.A.R.T. LOL

    It's kinda fun, but we try to keep it moderately clean when playing with kids.

  9. Audrey rocks!! I love the choices she made when given those letter tiles! She was probably pissed that she could not spell cake, donut, cookie, and spumoni.

  10. Ooohhhhh!!! Can I start yelling "Rot in ass, Sinbad" out my car window too??? I promise I will write your web address on my middle finger so you will get full credit when I flip those non-driving idiots off.

  13. Good Lord, she's her mamma's daughter! That totally rocks that she's mastered the finer points of the English language.

    I love smart kids!

  14. Is this Audrey's way of saying she doesn't like playing What's Gnu?!

    As always, my biggest laugh of the day! Thanks, Lynn!

  15. So awesome! I am totally loving Audrey's words. Just FYI, you could also say, "Ass-rot; bad sin!" Ass rot WOULD be a very, very bad thing.

  17. Maybe she was trying to send a message to that obnoxious animal on the box. Seriously though, HILARIOUS. As usual.

  20. Our kids are too alike. One of the first things I taught Jaylen to write was I (picture of a heart) u. And he instantly said, "How do I write I don't love you?"

  21. I've never seen this game before. Three letter words aren't enough..I'd like to see what she could do with four letter ones..:)

  22. the only thing worse than Sinbad's "humor" , is his attire.

  23. We have this game, and my 9yo looks for every opportunity to make "ass," because "It's really another name for a donkey, Mom." Smartass kid. We also now have Smart Mouth where you get the first and last letter and have to come up with a word 5 letters or more. We decided my husband and I should not be allowed to play that game. There were many words that went unsaid, but conveyed through looks and fits of giggles and left our 9yo totally confused.

  24. We have this game! I used to love it for my classroom, except that my kids were never interested in actually making words. They only cared about who could grab the letter first.
    I think Audrey would make such an unassuming Mistress of the Dark.
