Is it bad when ...

my 9 y.o. daughter calls me and asks, "How's your hammer hanging?"





I shouldn't have taught her that one.

Could be worse. She could have asked you if you're hung like a horse.

My wife had her oldest daughter (16) ask that to a (now former) boyfriend once. The lass had no idea what it meant. When she found out, her face turned a brighter shade of red than her hair.

When the only tool in your box is a hammer, all your problems look like nails.

I read it there yes, but I stole it long ago. In my case, when the only tool in your box is a rubber chicken, all your problems look like fake vomit.

A rubber chicken is far more useful than a hammer, if you ask me.

Not for driving rubber nails. You need at least a rubber duck for that.

I laughed. Mainly because she was trying to think of things to say. She's out of town and I told her she better call so I won't miss her so much. The conversation was getting a lag and she busted in with that.

Her: So watcha doing?
Me: Eating, watching TV. How 'bout you?
Her: Not much. Just hanging out.

(pause)

Her: So, how's your hammer hanging?
ME: lol! Just fine, honey.

A friend and I found a rubber chicken on a ride. We stopped and stared and poked at it before deciding what it was.

Sub, that story gave me a pretty good laugh, thanks.

BTW, after a bit of thought and a look at the peg board, I would have to respond that mine is hanging from it's head.
