What makes you snicker like a 12 year old boy?

Asked by keobooks (14322points) February 21st, 2012

I was reading this science article today and couldn’t control my snickering when I read the phrase “bigger than Earth but smaller than Uranus.”

I just couldn’t help it. No matter how sophisticated I pretend to be, just about any sentence with “Uranus” in it cracks me up. And I’m still trying to imagine a situation that would come up where I could use the exact phrase I just mentioned in a “your mama” style put-down even though I never tell jokes like that.

So I’ve got to know if any other mature folk out there here have to stifle giggles or snickers at things that are totally juvenile.

Seemingly everything on Fluther this morning. I’m in one of my “I was raised around boys” phases and see double entendres everywhere.

As I’m relatively new to having testosterone raging through my bloodstream, my sense of humour seems to have devolved to that of an adolescent boy, and any mention of the word “cock”, even when related to poultry, will make me giggle.

And anything that has to do with having a wide stance or hiking the Appalachian trail. Politicians come up with so many silly euphemisms for screwing around, you just have to laugh.

@MilkyWay Don’t forget about Dickie Birds

And Pontoon boats (which always make me think of the word poontang)

And those other little birds called Tits and Boobies

And these dear little Dik Dik’s

And Anthony Weiner

@SuperMouse My SO does those so well, in the most subtle of ways, that I often spit milk out of my nose : ) He has a gift.

My brother recently proposed that we start pronouncing “poop” like “co-op.” Po-op. Haven’t stopped snickering about that.

How are toilet paper and the Starship USS Enterprise alike? They both circle Uranus knocking off Klingons.

You know those word magnets for your fridge that you can form sentences with? Which often end up being haikus or dirty phrases. Man those things make me feel like a 12 year old boy. Or, some of them just don’t make any sense but in a way that I find so hilarious. Like “let the egg pound”, “puppy suit”, “who put enormous tongues in my bed?”, “Crush her and beat it”, “Blow your mother.” I feel very juvenile typing these out lol.

I also really enjoy using “your mom”‘s in everyday ways. Do you have a pen? No I don’t but I believe your mom has several.

^^Same here. About four months ago, I had anal surgery. The doctor said there would be side effects, one of which the muscle movement down there could alter permanently. My immediate thought was, oh shit, uncontrolled crap droppings?!

Fortunately, no. What happened was the surgery changed the way my farts sound! Before it was like Mozart whistling a happy tune. Now however, it’s like a Harley revving up for a race. Lol.

– butt cracks at baseball games
– toilet paper on someone’s shoe when they walk out of a bathroom,
– a girl’s skirt tucked into the back of her nylons

Today on The View they showed the 1st Gentleman of Finland coping a look at Princess Mary of Denmark’s clevage <snicker, snicker>

@SpatzieLover ”– toilet paper on someone’s shoe when they walk out of a bathroom,”

Oh my gosh, I did this last year at a movie theatre. I was about 20 metres out of the bathroom when in the corner of my eye I see this flicker of white on the dark background of the floor. I looked down and pulled it off. So embarrassing as there were people behind me. I constantly look at my shoes now whenever I’m in public.

I was the one snickering behind you. Did you hear me?

Keep_on_running's avatar

Lol, no, my nervous chatter after was too loud.

SpatzieLover's avatar

Open barn doors cause bouts of snickering.
