    I repair computers from my home, every so often. A repeat customer came over and was dropping off two out of warrenty Dell laptops for repair. My wife's cousin's were over at the time as well. As the customer was leaving, one of my cousins said "Enjoy your trip to Africa". The customer was black. I called the customer after and apoligized. Thanfully, he was understanding and wasn't bothered.

    How old was the cousin that said that? That = LOL. My little girl says funny stuff too, one that comes to mind is she walked in my parents house and said, "smells like weed!" Even though it didn't. She learned that a couple weeks earlier when I was going for a walk with her down a street on the south side, there were a group of people in a car parked smoking a blunt, and I said "smells like weed" quietly as I walked by. She took that and ran with it.

    One time in Walmart my daughter (age 4-5) asked a black lady "Why do they call you black? You're brown..."

    This reminds me of something I did when I was very young (like 2-3 years old). My dad told me about it here a few years back. My dad runs an auto repair shop, and has for ~30 years. One day, a neighbor and good friend dropped by. This guy was always flipping cars to make money, and the vehicles were generally in some sort of disrepair (accident vehicles, mismatched colors, bald tires, just generally in bad shape). So, he drove up and was showing off to my dad his newest "find." It was a 1960's VW Beetle that was all beat up from front to back and was running on maybe 2-3 cylinders. But, he got it cheap and was proud of it. I was always very personable, and could carry on conversations with older people from a very young age (even if I didn't know what I was talking about). So, I walked up to him showing off the car to my dad, and promptly asked him "So, is this your old piece of crap?" My dad's jaw dropped, and began stammering in hopes to not offend the neighbor. Before my dad could answer, the neighbor laughed a goofy laugh and replied "Yep, it sure is!" I actually got to know that guy pretty well over the years, and visited with him a lot. Pretty cool guy. But, my dad still tells the story of me basically pissing on his Wheaties for that day and him just laughing it off.

    I had a similar incident with the word "crap"-- thinking it just meant "stuff", I was at the dinner table and pointed to the mashed potatoes and asked, "Can I have some more of that crap?" My parents were agog. I was confused myself so I looked up and asked, "What's the big fuckin' deal?"

    I sat on my glasses last night and had to go get a new pair this morning. My wife said they looked great but then my 10 year old walked in the room and said they look like the 3D glasses they pass out at movies. I bet I've gone in the bathroom 20 times in the last couple of hours to look in the mirror and convince myself they don't.....but they do.

    Then there was my favorite R rated offshoot: "What Would you Say To A Naked Lady?"
