My kids like the farting sound the ketchup bottle makes

8 02 2007

If you haven’t been paying attention I have three boys.  Although I’m sure that fondness of silly noises is universal, there seems to be a heightened awareness of them in boys.  All I need to do to make 3-year old boy stop screaming is perform on the “stinky trumpet,” demonstrated below by 3-year old boy.


But rasberries are not the only way to make farting noises.  No, indeed the whole house seems full of sources of this amusing sound.  Here is a partial list of bottles that make farting noises:

  • Ketchup
  • Dishwasher detergent (such as Cascade)
  • Regular dish detergent (such as Ajax)
  • Jelly from those squeezie bottles
  • Certain salad dressings
  • Shampoo

Banging noises are also a favorite at our house.  Here are things that are much fun to bang on:

  • Plates
  • Tables
  • Cups
  • Pots & pans
  • Older brothers
  • Daddy 

Perhaps the favorite thing to bang on is the washing machine.  Striking that with two hands results in a very satisfying, sonorous BOOOOONNNNG.  I’ve sometimes wondered where the thunder was coming from, only to find the boys in the laundry room banging on the washing machine.

Ian plays a mean (and self-taught) armpit. Don’t know where he learned it, but he taught his entire cub scout den. I’ll be sure he instructs yours next time we see you.

You know, I’d never even HEARD of the “stinky trumpet” until this week. I think Mark secretly teaches the boys these things behind my back.

I think the “boys” have too much time on their hands. Have to admit, though…much cheaper than band instruments!!!

In my defense, Isaac brought the “stinky trumpet” idea home from school, so you can blame them!
