    I'm sure your spelling and punctuation was so much better though.
    The world is a toll-free toilet
    Our mouths neurological ass0s
    And psychologically speaking
    We're in a state of mental diarrhea
    Talking sh*t a mile a minute
    Or in a state of constipated notions
    Can't think of nothin' but sh*t, and in this world of stinky futures
    Sh*tty memories and constipated 19 now-nows
    Emerges from the hiney of your head the doo doo chasers
    The Promentalsh*tbackwashpsychosisenemasquad
    Bringing you music to get your sh*t together by

    Actually, that's about when my stepfather had "The Talk" with my kid brother. I'd offhandedly started a sentence with "When I was going out with Greg", and my brother, said, "You went out with Greg? (yes, at 8 years old, he knew what that meant) But you're both boys!"

    My stepfather calmly said, "Well, some boys go out with other boys."

    My brother shrugged and went back to his ravioli.

    Honestly don't remember. I was in Catholic school at that point, though, and the nuns were not particularly forgiving of lapses. Instruction through destruction was one of their favorite tactics.

    And coincidentally enough, the other night at rehearsal, my director brought the binder she keeps of thank-you letters we've gotten from kids when we visit schools..and yes, some of the third graders did actually write like this.

    Unfortunately, so did some of the seventh graders.
