Thank you, Weekly Reader.




Why was Mrs. Smith rolling on the floor laughing during morning centers? Jane discovered the squirrels on page two of our new Weekly Readers.



Jane: "Look at that cute little squirrel! He's just sitting there holding his nuts!"

Reading the previous blogs about your palm reading experience - what a bunch of c*(p. I'm going to buy you that digital recorder that you desperately need!

At our place, squirrels also like to live in the attic.

Kat said...

I would have to leave the room for a good belly laugh!

You just transported me back 40 years. Every summer, I begged to get a Weekly Reader subscription.

Joanie M said...

Yeah, I'd have to leave the room too.

I love when kids say those things, not so much when they say it to our Priest. OK, I lie I love it then too.

Mrs. E said...

Ranks right up there with the elementary teachers telling kids lining up at the end of recess to "hold their balls!"

Jeff D'Antonio said...

Sometimes, when the world gets you down, sitting around holding your nuts is all you can do.

I think there's a hit song in there somewhere...

Anne said...

Yep, he can hold his nuts and eat them too...

SkylersDad said...

This was wonderful!

SSP said...

OH Weekly Reader !! I used to LOVE that....we never had nut-holding squirrels though...not that "I" remember - man, they have really gotten pornographic, eh?

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Wouldn't they all like to be?
Sitting there holding their nuts, I mean...

Brian Miller said...

oh the life of a squirrel...

Suzy said...

The most shocking thing about that post was that Weekly Readers still exist.

Kris said...

I will always laugh at a squirrel nut joke!

Jeanne said...

Those squirrels -- just like my old boyfriend. I always thought he was kind of squirrely.

Merrily Down the Stream said...

Wait till that squirrel gets a hold of Dick!

Not The Rockefellers said...

Only thing cuter than a squirrel is a squirrel's nut zipper...

Beth P. said...

Oh my gosh. I love this and laughed so hard. So hard.

apathy lounge said...

One more reason why most women see a strong similarity between men and squirrels.

Nina P. said...

Are you sure he's just not checking out the size? After all I do see the beginning of a bear.... I can hear the chatter now... "Hey I've got nuts! How about you?"...... And of course the bears answer would be:... "Does a bear S_ _ _ in the woods?"... Oh those weekly readers!.. Gotta Love em! Love and Light, Nina P

otin said...

just replace, "that cute little squirrel" with "otin" and you just described my sex life! hahaha!

Levinson-Axelrod said...

Haha. I just made a squirrel 'nuts' joke this morning too. Ah, the jokes never stop.

Midwest Mommy said...

Oh my goodness I don't think I would have been able to keep a straight face!

Diane J. said...

Oh too funny! We were shopping in Target (around Christmas) when the twins were around 4. The boys both spotted those fancy nut cracker guys and they yelled "Mama,mama nuts cracker!"

Cora said...

Reminds me of the time my five year old nephew asked me if there was a monkey in my bush. I fell to my hands and knees laughing in the driveway.

*snicker*

Hahaha! So straightforward..!
